In Zambia’s far west, bordering Angola, Liuwa Plain National Park is one of the most remote and least visited parks in Africa, a well kept secret that, at the right time of year, offers one of the finest safari experiences even the most seasoned safari-goer could hope for.
With just one permanent camp, the rather wonderful King Lewanika Lodge, Liuwa Plains’ vastness is for real safari enthusiasts after a unique wilderness experience.
The plains host the second biggest migration of wildebeest in Africa, some 330 species of bird, healthy cheetah, wild dog and hyena populations, as well as a small lion pride with an incredible story of conservation. But the main draw of Liuwa Plain has always been the vast emptiness.
When to go
The park's only permanent camp, King Lewanika Lodge, is open from late Octover to early July.
