Lower Zambezi National Park

Lower Zambezi National Park

The Lower Zambezi, a key national park of Zambia, lies between the rugged and dramatic Zambezi escarpment and the wide and spectacular Zambezi River. The Zambezi runs for 75 miles through the park and with the protection of the Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe on the opposite side this is a haven for wildlife.

There are many channels, lagoons, sandbanks and islands along the river and then open plains, woodland and bush areas behind the riverine strip. The area has a backdrop of the Zambezi Escarpment which towers above the land making for some stunning scenery. From the Zambezi Escarpment seasonal rivers have gouged out gullies in the rock, now covered in hardy trees and bushes. Towards the river the land flattens out and here water collects in depressions and in floodplains by the river. The water, of course, is the magnet for the wildlife which comes down to drink. The river is a massive attraction and offers boating, drifting, canoeing and fishing, all with breathtaking views. For the avid fisherman, the tiger fishing (on a catch and release basis) is worth a week out here for.
