The Lower Zambezi National Park is situated opposite the renowned Mana Pools Reserve in Zimbabwe, but on the Zambian side of the Zambezi. The combination of the two Parks surrounding the Zambezi, creates an amazing wilderness haven, with ample of game viewing opportunities from a canoe on the Zambezi River. Largely unexplored and untouched, game is drawn to the source of life offered by the water of the Zambezi. The park covers quite a large area, with over 4092 square kilometers, but the game is relatively concentrated near the valley’s floor. The escarpment that stretches along the northern end, creates a natural boundary, keeping most of the animal’s species within this area. A leisurely cruise down the river can deliver viewing of large herds of elephant. Also see the buffalo and waterbuck, lion and leopard, as well as the majestic fish eagle.

WHEN TO GO?

As with the other Zambia Wildlife areas, the best time for game viewing is between May and October. This is dry season; the vegetation is sparse and the wildlife can be found drinking at the water holes or along the banks of the mighty Zambezi. In rainy season (‘Green Season’) the bush is very thick and green, making for spectacular scenery but it’s harder to spot the wildlife amongst the greenery and the animals tend to disperse away from the river banks.

TOP ACTIVITIES

The game viewing in Lower Zambezi National Park is phenomenal and unique, especially due to it’s water wilderness appeal. Take a boat safari along the river to spot large numbers of hippos and crocodiles, or a peaceful canoe down the Zambezi. Day and night drives are arranged by your chosen camps as well as nature walks and fishing expeditions.

 

WHERE NEXT?

The Zambezi river can also easily be combined with other greater parks of Zambia, as well as Zimbabwe.  Of course an African Safari in Zambia would not complete without a visit to the great Victoria Falls. Africa&You has on the ground experts who will plan your perfect itinerary including the Zambia highlights and the rest of Southern Africa.
