Liuwa Plains is one of the oldest conservation areas in Africa, dating back to the 19th century where the King of Barotseland, Lubosi Lewanika, appointed his people to be the custodians of the park and its wildlife. Liuwa Plains, to this day, is a perfect example of people living with wildlife and co-existing without conflict. A Liuwa Plains Safari takes you on an expedition very few people other than the Barotse have ever witnessed.
An unforgettable Liuwa Plains Safari
Every year, Liuwa Plains hosts the second largest wildebeest migration on the continent (beaten only by the Serengeti) – this is a sight to behold. Unlike the Serengeti, when you visit Liuwa Plains the chances of seeing other vehicles are slim. No cars, no cell phones, no crowds – just you and your fellow adventurers, your guide, your vehicle and the incredible wildlife. An incredible Liuwa Plains Safari is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
An untouched African Habitat
In the last few years National Parks of Zambia have reintroduced lion, eland and buffalo into the park. The numbers of these magnificent animals has now increased dramatically and is sustainable without any need for human interference. The park is now very well protected and poaching is on the decline. This makes for a fantastic expedition into one of the most untouched habitats in Africa.The Liuwa Plains safari operates out of Livingstone, and offers transport to and from Livingstone as part of the trip, although alternative arrangements can be made by special agreement should your starting point be elsewhere in Zambia. Please contact us for more information.
Liuwa Plains Safari Itinerary
Depart Livingstone, transit to Ngonye/Sioma Falls in time to tour the Falls and overnight camp. Very few people have explored these incredible, secluded waterfalls – a must-see!
Drive to Liuwa Plains National Park via Mongu, set up camp and then enjoy your first evening game drive in this unspoilt, middle-of-nowhere national park. Includes a night drive with spotlight so we can get our first glimpses of the nocturnal creatures that roam the park.
We spend the next 3 days exploring this treasure of a park whilst we track the massive wildebeest herds and the predators that follow them. We will also explore the less obvious creatures with more night drives, and off-the-beaten-track adventures. Birdlife is also wonderful.
We depart Liuwa and make the long return journey back to Ngonye/Sioma Falls where we have one last chance to see this hidden gem.
Return to Livingstone and your chosen accommodation.
