The magnificent Zambezi River divides the Lower Zambezi National Park from the Mana Pools World Heritage Site in Zimbabwe, making this part of a vast natural region, with no light or noise pollution. Game viewing is enhanced by breath-taking landscapes and wonderful sunrises and sunsets over the river.
The Lower Zambezi’s diverse vegetation, ranging from woodlands, riverine forest and bushy thickets to grassland and palm groves, attracts a great variety animals and birds. Wildlife is most visible on the floor of the Zambezi Valley, where the river winds through lushly beautiful scenery. Four of the Big 5 – lion, elephant, Cape buffalo and leopard – are found in the park. Elephants are undoubtedly the highlight – great herds of elephant and buffalo can be spotted the many channels and islands in the river. Once extinct in the park, the African wild dog has been sighted in Lower Zambezi since 2015.
