Lower Zambezi National Park

The Lower Zambezi National Park is one of the continent's most picturesque wilderness areas.

There is not as much game here as in the country’s more famous Luangwa Valley, but it is an area of immense natural beauty with numerous different landscapes and lovely mature trees largely undamaged by elephant. The area has been zealously protected in recent years and there's ever-increasing amount of wildlife and birds to see in its various ecosystems. The Lower Zambezi is also famed for its amazing tiger fishing. A few days here combines really well with a safari in the Luangwa Valley or the Kafue.
