Liuwa Plain National Park
Remote, untouched and absolutely pristine, the golden grassy plains of Liuwa Plain National Park is home to the second-largest wildebeest migration in Africa numbering in the tens of thousands. With the onset of the rains at the end of October, many thousands of blue wildebeest arrive from Angola across the border and head to the centre of the plain, together with the zebras, attracting a large number of lurking predators. Virtually-unknown and off the beaten path, this is a wildebeest migration experience without the crowds.
Why Liuwa Plain National Park?
Not a Big Five destination but is undoubtedly a safari connoisseur choice to experience the second-largest congregation of wildebeest in all of Africa. While the stars of the show are the gnus, Liuwa Plain National Park teems with an abundance of other wildlife such as a huge dazzle of zebras, buffaloes, hippos and various antelope species and a large number of predators such as lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, African wild dogs and jackals.
