Visit Lower Zambezi
The pristine wilderness of the Lower Zambezi National Park is a great place in which to watch Zambia's diverse and abundant wildlife. The park lies to the east of the capital, Lusaka, and across the Zambezi from the Mana Pools wildlife reserve in Zimbabwe. Up until the 1980s it was the private game reserve of the Zambian president and remains untouched by mass tourism, making it one of the last truly natural habitats in Africa.
The wildlife in the Lower Zambezi National Park is less prevalent than in some other parts of Zambia, but encounters with lions and leopards and sightings of birds such as fish eagles are common enough. Mopane and winterthorn trees, floodplains and the mighty river itself form a scenic backdrop to safaris in the park.
