Jaw-dropping scenery

Lower Zambezi National Park

Set opposite the Mana Pools Reserve of Zimbabwe, at the broadening of the Lower Zambezi, the eponymous Lower Zambezi National Park is a wonderland of jaw-dropping scenery, enthralling wildlife, and rich culture. Visitors can look forward to viewing elephant herds reaching up to a hundred strong and watch hippo, buffalo, leopard, lion, and 52 other mammal species play in their natural habitat.

Paddle along the river to watch the action along its banks, indulge in sundowners on a pontoon boat while more than 400 bird species surround you, and enjoy the excellent tiger fishing in the area. Don’t miss the opportunity to hike to the spectacular Chongwe Falls for a picnic, lunch on the sandbank with the water at your feet and discover the ancient traditional cultures of the Goba Villages with an interactive tour.

Best time to travel to Lower Zambezi National Park

The period from July to October is the middle and end of the dry season. The best wildlife viewing months are from July to October, as there is very little water to be found, and the animals hang around the places where they can still find water. However, October can at times be extremely hot.


Lower Zambezi National Park is home to 4 of the big 5; elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo. Hyena’s and wild dogs can also be spotted as well as herds of zebra, wildebeest and various species of antelopes. In the river there are many crocodiles and hippo. Birdlife is abundant.
