Liuwa Plain

Liuwa Plain National Park in Zambia has one of the oldest conservation histories 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.

With over 12,500 people legally living within the park, Liuwa is a prime example of how people and wildlife can co-exist and benefit in a shared landscape.

Each of the 5 campsites takes advantage of different sections in the park, so it’s important to consider drive times and season. Regardless, there are sure highlights throughout the season - from the very remote and wilderness feel of Sikale to the more convenient Lyangu, each site is sure to delight with the consistently excellent birdlife and very regular sightings of plains game and even visits from cheetah, lion and hyena.  CAMP SIZE 5 campgrounds, each accommodate up to 20 people in 4 sites.
