Experts have dubbed South Luangwa to be one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. Thanks to its impervious location, this 9,050-sq km park manages to combine immense density of wildlife with limited visitor numbers.
Liuwa Plain National Park was founded as a national park in 1972. The area was originally used as a hunting ground for Lubosi Lewanika, the king of the Lozi people. Lubosi Lewanika declared the area as a protected space in the early 1880’s.
