5-Day Lower Zambezi National Park Safari


Spend five days in this more distant and challenging safari location in Zambia, where you’ll stay in a luxurious bush camp for the utmost comfort. The buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard, and antelope populations in Lower Zambezi, a rarely visited national area, are of more to view. Go on wildlife drives, walking safaris, canoe safaris, and boat cruises along the rivers with your guide during the day. Experience the finest of this wildlife-rich park by trying your hand at fishing or by spending time watching birds. Lower Zambezi is renowned for its unfenced luxury camps, exceptional wildlife sightings, and ground-breaking conservation achievements. It is secluded and unspoiled. The national park is surrounded by two great backdrops for animal photography: the much-photographed Muchinga escarpment and the gently flowing Zambezi River. The Lower Zambezi National Park was established in 1983. Until then, it is the president of Zambia’s private wildlife reserve. The 4,092km2 park is situated on the north bank of the Zambezi River in the central province of Zambia. Due to the area’s recent tourism development and the Zambian government’s high degree of protection, it is still relatively untouched.

Itinary in details

Today, take your flight into Lusaka, and then board the smaller caravan aircraft for a flight to Royal airfield, which is close to Lower Zambezi National Park. Set out on an hour-long game drive from here as you make your way to your safari Camp, for overnight stay. Considering how far away it is and how few people visit it, the park is one of the less popular ones in the area. The Lower Zambezi National Park served as the president’s exclusive game reserve from 1920 to 1983, which helped to protect it from development and hordes of tourists during that time. It is still one of southern Africa’s more pure and unspoiled wilderness locations.

On the Zimbabwean side, the park is bounded by the Zambezi River and Mana Pools National Park, and the abundance of water and restricted access help to maintain healthy wildlife populations. Most cape buffalo are seen wandering the plain. There are also sizable populations of elephant, lion, leopard, antelope, hippo, and crocodile. There are numerous species of birds in the region, and occasionally one can see a Cape wild dog.

Spend your days participating in the various safari activities that the park has to offer. Both on land and in the sea, people watch game. To see some of the wildlife in Lower Zambezi National Park, go on day and night game drives or walking safaris with your guide. Instead, decide to take a one-hour canoe trip or go on a full-day boating excursion. There are additional options for fishing and motorized cruises.

Return to Royal Airfield to catch your flight back to Lusaka, where you can then continue on to your next location. You will either head back to Lusaka International Airport or spend the night there in preparation for a journey home the next day, depending on your airline’s departure schedule or subsequent plans.
