The swampland surrounding Lake Mweru in the far northern part of the country is much the same as the swamps of the Bangweulu in its profusion of waterbirds during the rainy season. The lake is surrounded by local fishing villages. It is possible to ask them to take you through the swamps in a dugout for a negotiable fee.
Mweru Wantipa National Park, adjacent to the lake, used to harbor vast herds of Elephant but poaching has depleted most of the wildlife, although there are still some small herds of buffalo. There are no tourist facilities but it is possible to camp along the lakeshore.
