The Lower Zambezi National Park, a world heritage site, is found on the northern banks of the Zambezi River, in south eastern Zambia opposite Mana Pools National Park
. The park covers an area of 4092km², gently slowing down the Zambezi Escarpment to the river itself, and is characterised by two types of woodland savanna: Miombo woodland, and mopane woodlands, as well as a floodplain terrain with riverine trees along the edge of the Zambezi.
Relatively undeveloped, the beauty of the Lower Zambezi National Park
lies in it’s unfettered, wild state. Most of the wildlife in this spectacular region can be found along the valley floor, and includes large herds of elephant, hippo, hordes of buffalo, kudu, waterbuck, zebra and eland. Predators in the area include hyenas, leopards, and even lions. The park is also a mecca for bird watching enthusiasts, with bird species such as fish eagle, carmine bee eaters, red-winged pratincole, black eagles, Meyers parrots, Lilian’s lovebirds, and the trumpeter hornbill.
Due to the strict management and conservations efforts within the region, the Lower Zambezi National Park
holds a remote status, which largely boosts its appeal. However, there are a number of accommodation options available, ranging from lavish river camps to luxury game lodges. The following accommodation venues represent some of the very best that the area has to offer. We have carefully chosen each of these and included them on our website because of their high standards and commitment to service excellence.
