The Liuwa Plains are based on the Angolan Border and have a rich cultural history when it comes to the Lozi people, of Barotse tribe. The plains host the second largest wildebeest migration in Africa and and have everything from wild dog to cheetah and lion. These amazing plains are accessible by private charter from Lusaka and offer the chance to get into an area with abundant game, and only one luxury safari operator. The bird life here is abundant and the views breathtaking.
Liuwa Plains is an absolutely magical place which recently featured on the BBC program Life Story – there was an absolutely amazing sequence with wild dog chasing a wildebeest. On Liuwa Plains the second largest wildebeest migration in the world takes place during the high season (June to October – with calving happening from Oct to Dec) – there are also over 330 species of rare birds – May June and July sees the arrival of flocks of pelicans and wattled cranes. This is also the only place in southern Africa where you find the rolling flat plains which so many people associate with Africa but don’t realize only exist in East Africa and Liuwa.
Hyena is the apex predator here but wild dog and cheetah also do very well. There is just one permanent camp in this amazing area and there will now be set departures throughout 2015 so that you can all visit this exceptional place which is usually only reachable by private charter. Here there are dramatic storms and wonderful vistas.
The existing camp Matamanene is now having a facelift and Norman Carr will offer set departures in 2015, before the opening of the exciting Kokomo Camp in 2016.
