Liuwa Plain Details 

Overview

We are thrilled to announce we are offering safaris in Liuwa Plain National Park, Zambia. We gave the existing camp, Matamanene a full facelift and operate 4 and 5 night set departure safaris guided by veteran Norman Carr Safaris' guides; this will be the only permanent camp in Liuwa Plain National Park. In conjunction with African Parks, we are building a new camp (Matamanene will close to guests) which is scheduled to open in 2017.
The area has a long and rich history and is homeland of the Lozi people. The traditional Monarch of the area is the Paramount Chief or King, called the Litunga, meaning 'keeper or guardian of the earth'. One of the earliest protected areas in Africa, Liuwa Plain was proclaimed a game reserve by the king in the early 1880’s; protected by the Lozi people and used as a royal hunting ground.
This is a true wilderness area, managed by African Parks Zambia since 2003. Guests will be able to see first hand how African Parks are securing the future of this recovering ecosystem.
Often described as a photographers dream, guests will see thousands of wildebeest in the second biggest wildebeest migration on earth, discover various species of rare birds (330 species; some in flocks of hundreds), follow cheetah hunt in the plains or watch clans of up to 50 hyena interacting at their den. There is something for everyone.
The 4 simple, yet comfortable tents are set in a small island of trees in the heart of the park. They are raised slightly off the ground, offer twin or double beds and have ensuite bathrooms with hot and cold running water. The chitenje – large central area - includes a small library and comfortable seating area, bar and dining area. The campfire is the perfect place to swap stories under the African night sky.
