The Lower Zambezi National Park is nestled between an impressive mountain escarpment to the north and the mighty Zambezi River to the south. The escarpment acts as a barrier for the game, keeping it on the plains and in the rich woodland on the bank of the river. The Park is over 4,000 square kms in size and occupies 120 kms of river frontage.
The Lower Zambezi is a haven for wildlife and bird lovers. Elephant, hippo and antelope are abundant and the Park boasts a healthy lion and leopard population with sightings of hyena and wild dog common.
Perhaps the most exciting aspect of game viewing in the Lower Zambezi is the sheer variety of activities on offer. In addition to the traditional game drives and walking safaris, the Zambezi River allows for a variety of additional river based activities and experiences that few, if any, other destinations can offer.
There are relatively few camps in and around the Park. With the absence of mass tourism the park remains a pristine wilderness, free from overcrowding.
Game viewing in the Lower Zambezi is primarily done in the dry season between the months of April - November.
