Why Lower Zambezi National Park?

The Lower Zambezi National Park – one of Zambia’s premier safari destinations – is set along the northern bank of the Zambezi River & provides serious riverfront game viewing as well as a host of exciting land & water-based activities.

Experience Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools is set opposite the Zambezi River, so together these 2 parks form an unbeatable wildlife-rich region, where the 120km-riverfront takes centre stage.

The Lower Zambezi is still wonderfully undeveloped, with only a handful of intimate lodges & tented camps scattered along the water’s edge. This prime setting delivers wonderful views of the river where hippos & crocodiles are found in huge numbers & where large herds of elephants & buffaloes gather to quench their thirst.

In the open grasslands, away from the river, you will find the hunting grounds for lion, wild dog & spotted hyena while birdlife in the park is a feast for the eyes.

Activities Since most of the lodges & tented camps are set on the banks of the Zambezi River, guests can enjoy land & water-based safari activities.

These include open 4x4 game drives, thrilling night drives, guided walking safaris, river cruises, canoeing & fishing.

When To Travel The best time to travel to the Lower Zambezi is during the dry season, which is from May to October. Animals will gather around the river & the grass is low, so it is easier to spot wildlife. This also coincides with Victoria Falls’ best travel season, so you can easily combine these 2 destinations & experience the best of both worlds.

Note that much of the Lower Zambezi National Park gest flooded during the wet summer season (from November to April), so many camps are closed during this time & reopens after the rains have ended in April.
