Nature and wildlife lovers who are looking for pristine raw African wilderness will love the Lower Zambezi National Park. With game drives, canoeing, walking safaris, fishing, boating and spectacular sunset cruises there is plenty to do for everyone.



Lower Zambezi National Park

  • Visit a huge national park that covers an area of over 4000 square kilometers 

  • Stay at the unfenced safari camps, where you can stay close to nature and wildlife

  • Take a silent boat journey with the whole family and have best wildlife views along the riverbank.

  • See large population of elephants, lions, leopards and buffalos.

Because the Lower Zambezi park was protected from mass tourism, it has been sustaining its pristine wilderness. Due to the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) ban on the world ivory trade and because of the presence of ZAWA (Zambia Wildlife Authority) teams carrying out law-enforcement patrols daily, the park and its wildlife population (especially elephants) have remained remarkably stable ever since.


The great flood plain which is situated along the northwestern bank of the river Zambezi is called Lower Zambezi National Park. It is rich with wildlife, great landscapes and a good environment for tall leadwood, ebonies, acacias and fig trees. This national park is a home for leopards, lions, buffalo and over 400 other species. 

The Lower Zambezi National Park is the first carbon-neutral park in the world.


The park 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.


Camps inside the park – Chiawa and Old Mondoro, Anabezi and Amanzi, Sausage Tree and Potato Bush, Tusk and Mane

Camps outside the park – (these camps are very close to the park gate) Chongwe, Royal Zambezi Lodge and Kasaka.

Further away from the main gate are lots of little camps which mainly offer self catering options.
