LOWER ZAMBEZI NATIONAL PARK SAFARI
The Lower Zambezi National Park – located in south eastern Zambia - was declared a national park in 1983 and was a private park of the Zambian president before that.
Because of this the park was protected from mass tourism, thus sustaining its pristine wilderness. Due to the CITES ban on the world ivory trade and because of the presence of ZAWA teams carrying out law-enforcement patrols daily, the park and its wildlife population (especially elephants) have remained remarkably stable ever since.
Right opposite Mana Pools there is breathtaking scenery and wildlife in abundance but conscious about their carbon footprint, you’ll struggle to find a more perfect place for a safari holiday to visit in Zambia. The Lower Zambezi National Park is the first carbon-neutral park in the world and its tall leadwood, ebonies, acacias and fig trees provide a spectacular views. This area offers day and night game drives, canoeing, walking safaris, fishing safaris and boating with spectacular sunset cruises.
Best time to visit is May to October - Dry season.
The thick bush thins out and wildlife is easier to spot and animals will gather around the river as the season lengthens This is also the Best time to visit the Victoria Falls.
November to April - Wet Season. The bush is a lush and green landscape with fewer tourists and lower rates. Birdwatching is at its best.
