A land unchanged by time, Liuwa Plain’s vast savannah has been protected for over 100 years, yet it’s one of Africa’s best-kept secrets. Gliding in a helicopter above its golden grasslands and shimmering lagoons you’ll touch down at the only permanent camp in the park.
Watch a flock of cranes swirl over a sea of wildflowers in the clear morning sun. Listen to the distant rumble of an afternoon thunderstorm gathering on the curved horizon. Take a deep breath and catch the scent of the long grass as a soft breeze whispers through it. Feel humbled amid the second-largest migration of wildebeest, thousands of zebra and oribi, hyena in clans of 50 or more, or a speeding cheetah teaching its cubs how to hunt.
Legend has it that Mambeti, a beloved daughter of the Lozi king’s favourite game warden, was reincarnated as the famed Lady Liuwa—matriarch of Liuwa’s lion pride. Now gone, Lady’s spirit lives on in this sublime untouched wilderness, watching over her growing prides.
