The Lower Zambezi National Park

ZAMBIA


ADVENTURE SAFARIS IN THE LOWER ZAMBEZI NATIONAL PARK

The Lower Zambezi National Park can be found on the north bank of the Zambezi River in south-eastern Zambia. The Zambezi River, the fourth longest river in Africa, has its origins in the high woodland regions of northern Zambia. The wide river winds its way between the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, eventually finding its way through Mozambique and into the Indian Ocean along the East Coast of Africa.

The Lower Zambezi National Park’s beauty lies in that is it still relatively undeveloped and wild. This is because until 1983 when the area was declared a national park, the region was the private game reserve of Zambia’s president. The park lies opposite the equally beautiful Mana Pools Reserve in Zimbabwe, overall creating a rather massive wildlife sanctuary on both sides of the river surrounded by a ring of mountains.


ABUNDANT WILDLIFE AND LARGE HERDS

Along the river’s calm stretches, wildlife is abundant and sightings of hippopotamus, crocodile and elephant are common. Although the diversity of animals may not match other big parks, there are wonderful opportunities to get close to game wandering in and out of the channel. Most of the game is concentrated on the valley floor, with the escarpment along the northern end of the reserve acting as a physical barrier to most wildlife. Herds of elephant, up to one hundred strong are often seen at the river’s edge as well as buffalo and waterbuck. The Park also has good populations of lion and leopard and the birdlife near the river is unbeatable.


UNCROWDED CAMPS AND LODGES

Unlike South African parks, there are no tarred roads and tourist numbers are limited due to the region’s inaccessibility. Most visitors find their way to park via boat along the Zambezi or by light aircraft from Livingstone or Lusaka. Given the close proximity of the park to northern Botswana’s rich wildlife areas and the magnificent Victoria Falls, we recommend a trip which encompasses a visit to these areas as well.

For the quintessential experience of a safari along the Zambezi, we like Amanzi Camp for its rustic feel and prime location on the banks of the Zambezi. Whilst in the region, you might also enjoy a stay at Anabezi Luxury Tented Camp, located in the eastern sector of the park.
