This spectacular migration is the second-largest wildebeest migration in Africa
Vast, remote, wild and untouched… Liuwa Plains National Park in Zambia is a true safari treasure. This spectacular park is located in Zambia‘s Western Province, near the border with Angola. A little-known park, it is uncrowded and perfect for those seeking solitude and true African wilderness. One of Liuwa’s biggest attractions is its annual blue wildebeest migration, when thousands upon thousands of wildebeest converge on the plains at the onset of the rainy season (around November), and move on following the grazing cycles. The spectacle is the second biggest migration of wildebeest in Africa, after the world-renowned Great Migration that takes place in Kenya and Tanzania. Experience the thrill of seeing thousands of wild animals traverse the wild plains of Africa, without thousands of tourists following (as is the case in East Africa)…
