Lochinvar National Park, although not proliferous with large mammals, stands as a location of unique beauty and unparalleled opportunities for birding. It boasts an impressive record of over 420 bird species in its compact area of 428km². Waterbirds are notably plentiful on the flats, which flood from the Kafue River. The park is also renowned for its ample herds of Kafue lechwe, a unique species endemic to the Kafue Flats. Other antelope inhabitants include the blue wildebeest, kudu, oribi, and buffalo. The park graces the southern edge of the Kafue Flats, a broad floodplain stretching between the Itezhi Tezhi dam in the west and Kafue Gorge in the east, on the Kafue River. This expanse extends 33km from the river in the north to the gentle hills in the south, enshrining the sizable Chunga Lagoon, whose magnitude varies with the river levels. The park's diverse vegetation makes it an engaging destination, with floodplains, woodlands and termitaria.
