12-Day Pizi Safari - Burchell's Zebra in Liuwa Plain NPOur 12-Day Pizi Safari highlights the pristine wilderness of Liuwa Plain NP and the northern Kafue NP.

Liuwa Plain NP is home to the 2nd largest Wildebeest migration in Africa. Spotted Hyenas are the apex predators here. They are hunting to survive and mainly active in the early hours of the day and late in the afternoon. During the hot hours of the day they are often laying near waterholes. Lions are using the thickets around Matamanene to ambush Wildebeest while Cheetahs chase after Oribi. Liuwa Plain was the traditional hunting ground of the Litunga, the King of Barotseland. To prevent poaching he settled his subjects around the boundary and allowed them to fish in the streams and let the cattle graze in Liuwa Plain. Even today it is still like this.

The biodiversity of Kafue NP is amazing. It is the largest and oldest national park in Zambia. In the North of Kafue is another big open area – Busanga Plains. Herds of Buffalo, Sable, Roan and Eland are often seen here.

Our 12-Day Pizi Safari is a tented safari starting in Livingstone and ending in Lusaka. This safari can be extended to Lower Zambezi ( ->Zambezi Bush Break) and / or South Luangwa ( -> Luangwa Bush Break)
