← Back to Working for Water: The Bangweulu Wetlands and Africa’s Shoebill…

“The Bangweulu is a vast wetlands area with permanent swamps and seasonal flooding of plains. The system is fed by the Chambeshi, Luapula, Lukulu and Lulimala rivers and consists of floating grasses, papyrus and reeds. Besides the fish and the shoebills, the swamps are home to crocodiles, hippopotamus, sitatunga, and is an internationally important habitat for water birds.”
