The Royal Opening of Time + Tide King Lewanika - Liuwa Plain ZAMBIA

On Thursday 20th June 2019, His Majesty the Litunga Lubosi Imwiko II officially opened the Time + Tide King Lewanika Lodge in Liuwa Plain National Park in Zambia.

The event commemorated over a century of conservation where traditional custodianship under the Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) has maintained a remarkable coexistence between people and wildlife.

Liuwa Plain, managed by African Parks in partnership with the Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW) and the BRE, is one of Africa’s most important grassland ecosystems, annually hosting the second largest wildebeest migration on the continent.

The official opening of this world class lodge, operated by Time + Tide, is a testament to this history and partnership in restoring Liuwa Plain as a wilderness destination of global repute, and as a thriving landscape for people and wildlife.
