Trip Summary

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.

On Liuwa, wildlife thrives and iconic species such as Wild Dog and Cheetah can be found and here by virtue of mans persecution of Lions, Hyena’s have proliferated, now with by virtue of an ongoing re introduction program Lions once again roam the plains and the now famous last Lion, Lady Liuwa is again part of a cohesive pride who very often can be found on the plains.
