Liuwa Plains Norman Carr Safaris Camp to open


 




Norman Carr Safaris and Time + Tide are very excited to annouce that as of May 2015 we will be operating safaris in Liuwa Plain National Park.
The team were in the Plain this past week with our partner for this new venture, African Parks Zambia, and we have fallen in love....as Dave said "Liuwa is food for the soul". For those to whom Liuwa Plain National Park is new, here are some highlights:
