Liuwa Plain is one of the oldest areas of conservation in African history and dates back to the late 19th century when the King of Barotesland appointed his people as custodians of the reserve. This area is home to wildlife and local communities each needing to be sustainably managed to protect the fragile ecosystem and ensure a mutual coexistence for all. Liuwa Plain is the site of one of the most incredible wildlife spectacles across its 3660 km expanse - the second largest wildebeest migration in Africa. Until Liuwa Plain came under the management of African Parks, this was under great threat and due to poaching, numbers of zebra and wildebeest were in decline. Harmonious cohabitation of wildlife and local communities is managed through effective law enforcement, engagement and communication.
