A LITTLE MORE ABOUT LIUWA PLAINS NATIONAL PARK

One of Zambia's - if not Africa's - most remote parks, the Liuwa Plains National Park lies in the far west of Zambia, close to the Angolan border. Proclaimed a game reserve in the 1880s, by the king of the local Lozi people, it was once used as a royal hunting ground.

Seasonal flooding inundates these fertile grasslands, which are dotted with enclaves of native woodland. Although home to relatively few predators, the park is famed for its sizeable clans of hyenas. And thanks to patient conservation and reintroduction work, the solitary life of the last remaining lion, Lady Liuwa, is no longer so solitary. The plains are now home to a small pride, consisting of two young females, two cubs and a resident male.
