Get close to elephants and hippos at Lower Zambezi National Park, a protected wildlife viewing area along the northwestern bank of the Zambezi River. Gently sloping from a steep escarpment into a flood plain dotted with acacia trees, the park houses a wide variety of wildlife, including lions, leopards, cheetahs, buffalos, zebras, baboons, and bushbucks. Colorful bee-eaters and over 400 other bird species populate and nest in these lush areas. A private game reserve until 1983, the park was declared national property to curb poaching and currently covers 4,200 sq km (1,622 sq mi).

  • We loved the drive through Lower Zambezi, starting with a lion viewing and then more elephants than you could imagine along with all the other animals up close and personal. After a fun cruise up the Zambezi and back to Baines River camp, we couldn't have had a better day.
  • Untainted and amazing part of Zambia. Unfortunately this time we couldn’t see many animals, but just the scenic park. We did a self drive from Kiambi. Big mistake. Took us about 2.5 hours to cover a distance of approximately 70km to the Chongwe gate. The road is only for 4X4. Next time will opt for Game drive offered by lodge, or better yet, use a canoe to got through the park. You will need at least one full day to appreciate this reserve
