Luxury safaris in the Lower Zambezi National Park
Due to continued and effective protection, The Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia has escaped the ravages and damage of mass tourism and the result is a pristine wildlife wilderness of which there are relatively few left in the World.
Until the area was declared a national park in 1983 it existed as the private game reserve of Zambia’s President which ensured its protection and exclusivity. The park slopes gently from the Zambezi Escarpment down to the north bank of the Zambezi River as it flows through south eastern Zambia. Lying opposite, across the river that forms the border between the two countries, is Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park. Both national parks sit on a floodplain that is also a world heritage site.
The Lower Zambezi National Park enjoys varied eco systems that include the woodland savannah of Miombo and Mopane trees – southern Miombo on the higher ground to the north and Zambezian and Mopane woodland on the southern lower slopes and a floodplain habitat at the edge of the river.
The Zambezi River is a mighty and furious body of water further along its course as it thunders over the edge of the famed Victoria Falls but as it travels through the Lower Zambezi National Park it is a very much gentler beast. Its peaceful pace allows an immense volume of wildlife to enjoy its bounty – huge herds of elephant that may include up to a 100 or so animals, buffalo, water buck, wallowing hippo, crocodiles and graceful antelope. The lush riverbanks with the dense covering of baobab and acacia trees also support predator populations. Here there are great prides of big cats – lions, leopards and cheetah which follow the other game with intent.
This area of Zambia is also a haven for birdwatchers with many wonderful species taking to the skies above the river – colourful bee-eaters, fish eagles and trumpeter hornbills amongst the throng. A safari holiday in Zambia includes every element crucial to the best wildlife experience; there are thrilling activities to be enjoyed with superb and knowledgeable guides – game drives by 4x4 vehicles or guided walking safaris; tiger fishing, leisurely river cruises and canoeing.
The exclusive remoteness of the Lower Zambezi National Park is further enhanced by the fact that there are no tarred roads and so the area is fairly inaccessible by land and therefore you will encounter relatively few other tourists. Visitors are brought into the park by boat along the Zambezi or by light aircraft from Livingstone or Lusaka.
We work closely with small, family owned and personally managed safari camps and private house style properties that share our passion for nature in its wildest form and that operate and understand the same commitment and level of service to our clients as we do. Their knowledge, expertise and welcoming attention to detail is essential to provide the most exciting, enjoyable and comfortable Zambian safari experience.
Spectacular scenery, exceptional game viewing, exciting activities and stunning luxury accommodation certainly makes the Lower Zambezi National Park an awe inspiring safari destination.
