Lower Zambezi National Park
The Lower Zambezi National Park lies opposite the famous Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe, creating a huge wildlife sanctuary on both sides of the Zambezi River.
Slow Right Down
The beauty of the Lower Zambezi lies in its state of absolute wildness. This phenomenal setting lends itself to a slow, peaceful pace of life.
Lodges tend to be more flexible with their timing, and can put together a day of activities to suit your mood: wake up at dawn for a game drive, or sleep late and then go tiger fishing on the Zambezi – the choice is yours.
From Big Cats to Colourful Birds
Enormous herds of elephant are often seen at the river’s edge, crocodiles bask in the Zambian sunshine and the birdlife is phenomenal: from small, coulorful bee-eaters to mammoth shoebill storks.
The park also hosts good populations of lion and leopard, best viewed on day and night game drives. And if you’re interested in the smaller creatures, we’d recommend a guided walking safari to explore the floodplains and mopane forests.
Life On The River
Perhaps the most exciting aspect of game viewing in this unique reserve is the exciting range of experiences to choose from.
We’d highly recommend a canoeing safari down the narrow hippo-filled channels past reed islands, which are home and feeding grounds for a myriad of wildlife.
Luxurious Lodges and Tented Camps
Lower Zambezi accommodation comprises luxurious lodges, tented camps and private Zambia villas set on the riverbank against a beautiful beautiful backdrop of wild mountains, with views across the massive Zambezi River.
The wide range of experiences available makes the Lower Zambezi Park a great option for a Zambia family holiday, although do bear in mind that none of the properties are fenced so elephant frequently wander through the camps.
