- LakeBangweulu A shallow lake bordered by swamps on a plateau of northeast Zambia. It was discovered by David Livingstone in 1868.
“The term Bangweulu is sometimes applied to the whole depression, but is properly confined to the area of clear water.”
“Bangweulu, meaning "where the water meets the sky", this is one of the few remaining true wilderness areas in this ecoregion.”
“In addition, Bangweulu is also designated as a Ramsar site, with more than 400 bird species inhabiting its roughly 2500 km2 area.”
“For example, black lechwe (Kobus leche smithermani), tsessebe, and sitatunga dominate the Bangweulu basin, while the Kafue lechwe and Burchell's zebra are amongst the most prominent herbivores in Kafue Flats.”
“Largely restricted to this ecoregion, this species is an uncommon resident of the marshes and floodplains of the Okavango, Chobe, and the Caprivi Strip as well as from the Zambezi Valley northwards to the Bangweulu swamps.”
“For example, over 50 percent of the fish production for Zambia comes from the Bangweulu basin and Kafue Flats.”
“Areas of largely untouched habitat still exist in many of the wetlands of this ecoregion, particularly in the Okavango Delta, the Bangweulu, Moyowosi and Kilombero swamp systems and the Kafue Flats.”
“Livingstone died in Zambia's Bangweulu wetlands in 1873.”
“The WWF is likely to maintain its strong interest in Zambia's important wetlands, Bangweulu and Kafue," Jeffrey said.”
“Bangweulu on the north, and the Luangwa river on the east and south; perhaps also some of the languages along the course of the Upper Luapula river.”
