Wildebeest Migration, Zambia Hailed the ‘greatest show on earth’, the annual wildebeest migration is a must-do on any safari goer’s bucket list. The thunder of hooves as thousands of wildebeest cross the plains of Zambia is a sensory overload that is bound to leave you reeling. Whilst the migration is on a smaller scale to that of the Serengeti, and does not attract the same numbers of visitors, it is just as remarkable. During November and December, the masses arrive from Angola and cross the Liuwa Plains in a stampede. The King Lewanika lodge, located in the heart of the Liuwa Plain National Park, offers a front row seat to watch the spectacle unfold in front of your eyes.
