The Liuwa Plains Safari Game Viewing and Activities

The game in Liuwa Plain National Park is spread out across the plains. Guests can expect to see thousands of Blue wildebeest, wild dog, lion and sometimes cheetah. The birdlife is prolific and the park provides fantastic photographic opportunities, magnificent sunsets and contrasting landscapes with the green and gold grasslands offering spectacular scenes. The start of the raining season in November brings the massive herds of blue wildebeest traversing the plains in their thousands, along with zebra congregating around water holes and pans. Other wildlife species that can be seen include oribi, red lechwe, steinbuck, duiker, tsessebe and roan. The Jackal, serval, wildcat, wild dog as well as lion and hyena are the predators of the area. Many birds migrate here during the rains and massive flocks of birds can be seen as they migrate south. Liuwa Plain National Park is one of the most remote parks in Zambia and should not be attempted without a guide; this is Africa at its best, wild and untouched.
