Liuwa Plains National Park

Discover iconic Liuwa Plains National Park

Regarded as a “game reserve” from as early as the 19th century, by the Lozi people who were charged with looking after its wildlife by their Litunga (king), Liuwa Plains National Park was officially recognised by the government in 1972.

Its remoteness, in Zambia’s far west reaches, ensures a wonderfully pristine wildlife experience where vast herds of wildebeest, wild dog and lion inhabit the region’s golden plains. The park is also home to a plethora of bird species making for ideal off-the-beaten-track birdwatching excursions.

There is a local Lozi legend that tells of a Litunga, who planted his walking stick on the plains, and it grew into a large mutata tree. This tree can still be seen in the national park.
