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).

Lower Zambezi National Park reviews
What a place this is, so remote and difficult to get to but once you are there, WOW. The less people, the better is rule number one in doing safaris.

This park is so vast and we were able to see so many different species of wildlife. Our stay was short and I would like to go back for longer next time!

This is the third different National park in Zambia we have had safaris in. I would say it is a close second to South Luangwa for wild life sightings, loosing out because their are no Giraffes. However on the plus side it is quieter as their isn't as many vehicles roaming the area. We saw everything available including great close encounters with Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Hippos etc. If you like fishing it's a great place to catch Tiger fish whilst boating on the Zambezi River as well as watching great sunsets.
I Loved Watching the giant African Elephant & other sort of Animal like the Beautiful Zebra, Antelope, Hippopotamus, Buffaloes etc
