The Lower Zambezi is one of Zambia’s top attraction for good reason. Although it is far smaller than either the South Luangwa or Kafue, it offers possibly the best variety of activities of any National Park in Africa. As well as this it also remains nicely undeveloped and it doesn’t take long to feel like you are in a true wilderness area.
This area has incredibly biodiversity thanks to the mighty Zambezi River, here the river has lost the ferocity that it had when cascading over the Victoria Falls some 500km upstream…the floodplains, therefore, benefit from centuries of fertile mineral deposits creating a haven for wildlife. The Lower Zambezi National Park also benefits from being a protected area long before it was open to tourism, previously being the private reserve for the countries president.
With so many activities this is the place to come if you are looking to stay in one location for a little longer, you can go take part in canoe safaris, boating safaris, walking and of course driving safaris, on top of this is one of the best areas for fantastic Tiger fishing with most camps and lodges offering this on a catch and release basis.
