Bangweulu and Kasanka


... is an area of northcentral Zambia.

Bangweulu Swamp is a large and important wetland area which is yet to be gazetted as a national park. The main attractions are the vast herds of black lechwe antelopes and the rather bizarre shoebill storks.

Kasanka National Park is another wetland area a little further to the south, whose main attractions are elusive sitatunga antelopes and an enormous bat migration.

In between the two areas lies the Livingstone Memorial, where the missionary's heart was buried before his body was carried back to Zanzibar by his faithful retainers Sussi and Chuma.

We generally find that the attractions of this area are too peripheral for the vast majority of our guests and it is therefore quite rare for us to assist in building it into trips. In fact the area generally experiences very low visitor numbers and is relatively difficult and expensive to access, as well as having very few facilities for visitors.

Shoebill Island Camp ... is the only lodge here, a relatively simple but serviceable facility which can be sensibly used as a base for visiting all the points of interesting in the area.
