Wildlife and Nature
The Province has some of the biggest game reserves and rich wildlife resources in the Country. Laying on the Southern shores of Lake Tanganyika in the Northern most tip of Zambia is the Nsumbu National Park covering an area of over 2000 square kilometers.
The park provides a haven for hippo, crocodile, flamingo and other water birds.
A motorboat on the lake is a great vantage point from which to watch the variety of bird life and game, which includes buffalo, lion, antelope, zebra, black rhino and leopard. Situated on the south western edge of the Lake Bangweulu basin is Kasanka National Park. The Park has diverse vegetation from lush wetlands and papyrus swamps to evergreen forests and harbors a great variety of unusual birds and mammals.
Millions of fruit bats congregate here towards the end of every year in a spectacular display. Migratory birds sit on Bangweulu swamps. These unique birds, presumably from Australia, have only one place of migration, the Bangweulu swamps in Zambia.
