Liuwa Plain National Park was founded as a national park in 1972. The area was originally used as a hunting ground for Lubosi Lewanika, the king of the Lozi people. Lubosi Lewanika declared the area as a protected space in the early 1880’s.

Today, the nonprofit conservation organization, African Parks manages the 3,600 km sq park in partnership with the Department of National Parks and Wildlife and the Barotse Royal Establishment.
