Bangweulu means ‘where water meets the sky’, which is a perfect description for these globally important and stunning wetlands in Zambia. This extraordinarily rich and diverse ecosystem is home to 400 bird species, a host of ungulates like the endemic black lechwe, carnivores like jackals and hyenas, crocodiles and at least 80 fish species. Uniquely, Bangweulu is a community-owned protected wetland made up of Game Management Areas and is legally home to 50,000 people who retain the right to sustainably harvest its natural resources.
