The essence of the birding safari
A prime destination for migrating species, massive flocks of birds can be seen in the skies above Liuwa between May and July. When the seasonal floods fill the pans to brimming point, bird watchers will delight in spotting a variety of notable species, from white bellied bustards and crowned cranes to sooty chats, fish eagles and woodland kingfishers. Liuwa features a variety of birding habitats, with the plains dotted with woodland that creates shelter for a number of species. The dramatic light and the vivid colours of the grasslands make Liuwa ideal for bird photography.
