Lower Zambezi

an authentic safari in one of Africa’s most pristine wilderness areas

The Lower Zambezi National Park earns its place as one of Zambia’s premier safari destinations, with high densities of wildlife combined with plenty of activities. Visitors can also expect an authentic safari in one of Africa’s most pristine wilderness areas.

Located just a 25-minute flight away from the capital, Lusaka, the Lower Zambezi National park is settled within a beautiful flood plain on the banks of the Zambezi River. The scenery of the park is simply sensational, featuring oxbow lagoons, lush miombo woodland, savannah and grassland. The edge of the river is lined with a thick fringe of ebony and fig trees, whilst the Zambezi escarpment provides a monumental backdrop.

The park is famed for its elephants, who can often be seen in large herds crossing the river into Zimbabwe. Impala can be found in large numbers, whilst lion, leopard, buffalo, zebra and waterbuck sightings are all common. The wealth of bird life along the riverbanks makes it an excellent destination for avid birders, with colonies of dazzling carmine bee-eaters and flocks of quelea.

What sets the Lower Zambezi National Park apart from others is the variety of safari experiences available. Along with bush walks and game drives, you can canoe, fish and boat amongst crocodile and hippo on the Zambezi River.
