Classed as a ‘Wetland of International Importance.’ It’s different from anywhere else in Zambia, but is seldom reached by visitors. Lochinvar’s heart lies the huge Chunga Lagoon, bordered by wide floodplains. Lochinvar is one of Zambia’s top destinations for bird-watchers, who come to see water-birds gather in great numbers. It also has good numbers of oribi, zebra and wildebeest, and is a stronghold for Kafue lechwe, which can be seen in their thousands.
North of the lake, you’ll find historical, both colonial and pre-colonial ruins, and some marvellous rocks that sound like metal when struck.
