These remote swamps are unique in ecology, fauna and flora. The water covers huge areas of the swamps until about April each year, when the waterline slowly recedes, and water birds congregate to feed in the pools and channels.
It is here that we will be looking for the elusive Shoebilled Stork. This interesting, strange looking bird has become very rare in most parts of Africa, but here in the Bangweulu they are fairly common.
We move on foot and with a boat (depending on the water level) to find the water birds, the huge herds of Lechwe antelope, and other animals like tsessebe (a species of antelope), zebra, buffalo and black backed jackal.
The herds of thousands of Lechwe in this seemingly endless landscape, is an unforgettable African experience!
