The Lower Zambezi National Park is one of the continent’s most picturesque wilderness areas. It lies on the north bank of the Zambezi River in southeastern Zambia. It gently slopes from the Zambezi Escarpment down to the river, straddling two main woodland savannah ecoregions distinguished by Miombo and Mopane trees. Southern Miombo woodlands populate the higher ground in the north, and Zambezian and Mopane woodlands on lower slopes in the south. At the edge of the river is floodplain habitat.
Most large mammals in the national park congregate on the floodplain, including buffalo, elephants, lions, leopards and many antelope, crocodiles and hippopotamuses. There are also numerous species of birds.
The range of activities offered in this area include guided walks, game drives, boating, canoeing, kayaking and fishing.
