Liuwa Plains, Chobe and Victoria Falls

Departing Nov 2020, with optional extension to Savuti and the Okavango Delta

Liuwa Plains, Chobe and Victoria Falls

This affordable camping safari offers you the opportunity to explore one of central Africa’s most remote national parks, Zambia’s Liuwa Plains. In November, Liuwa hosts the continent’s second largest wildebeest migration, and is also renowned for its hyena and wild dog hunting packs, famously captured in David Attenborough’s ‘The Hunt’. While the five days spent in Liuwa form the focus of this unique safari, the programme also includes time in Chobe National Park and visiting the Victoria Falls.
