Liuwa Plains

Beautiful, Vibrant, Exciting, Dramatic, Remote. 
Situated far to the West in Zambia, Liuwa is in the land of the Lozi people and home to some incredible wildlife yet it is a place little known even by the well traveled safari enthusiast.

A seasonal flood plain feed by waters that rise in Angola and make their way to the Zambezi leaving behind vast areas of lush grazing that are the focus of the second largest wildebeest migration on earth. Years of poaching had dramatically reduced the Lion population allowing Hyenas to flourish and become the Apex predator, but now the Lions are back and with the Lion re-introduction has come research and the discovery of previously unexpected numbers of Wild dogs amongst the plains game.

We at Busanga Safaris are one of the few who understand and respect Liuwa as a destination for the wildlife enthusiast and adventurer and 2015  will see us offer a limited number of  safaris taking small groups to Liuwa just as the plains are at their most beautiful. 

Contact us know for information on our Liuwa safaris or to book on the limited space available.

We can help plan your Liuwa safari to include other parts of Zambia
and benifit from discount or even free nights.

 We are very excited to be able to offer these Liuwa Plains safaris which uniquely take our guests to the heart of this incredibly beautiful and wild wilderness in Zambia’s far west.

An off the beaten track experience led by one of Africa's finest guides… Join us for some fantastic birding and game viewing in this truly remote and sought after destination with guiding by the legendary Robin Pope as icing on the cake!

We are offering 6 set departures guided by Robin to Liuwa Plain, ranging between 3 & 4 nights each based at King Lewanika Safari Lodge (NCS) : Liuwa Plains is home to many antelope species that are rare in other locations such as roan, red lechwe, steinbuck, oribi, duiker and the occasional roans and tsessebe. African Parks has re-introduced eland and buffalo and their numbers are expected to increase. The area is famous for its abundant birdlife as a mix of plains and woodland allow a larger diversity of species. More unusual species include pink throated longclaw, sooty chat, black winged pratincoles and wattled cranes. The rolling grasslands and diversity give rise to many superb photographic opportunities.

We can also arrange safaris to Liuwa on dates to suit you and which can include safaris to the vast and diverse Kafue National park, as well as to all of Zambia's other wildlife areas, and beyond.

Western Zambia is largely untraveled even by the most experienced safari enthusiasts and yet flying west from Lusaka there are two of Zambia’s greatest and most wildlife diverse national Park areas. 

The Kafue is home to possibly the most diverse collection of wildlife species of any African park recently re emerging as a key safari destination for any Zambia safari. The Liuwa Plains, an equally incredible wildlife habitat and a story of conservation success where Hyena are the apex predator, and home to Africas 2nd largest Wildebeest Migration.
