Zambia is renowned for the quality of its national parks and among the very best spots is the Lower Zambezi National Park, with exceptional game-viewing potential.

Isabel, Eleanor and Louise Fitzgerald are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Often described as the 'real' Africa, much of enormous and land-locked Zambia is wilderness, but what wilderness it is

Lower Zambezi Safaris: The Detail

A safari in the Lower Zambezi can be the ideal way to really discover the diversity and secrets of the African bush. The Chongwe River forms the western boundary of the 1,500 square mile park and the game-viewing here is bountiful, with the Chongwe area particularly famous for its large herds of elephant, as well as populations of lion, leopard and wild dog.

Original Travel know the area well, work with the best camps and guides and can arrange walking safaris as well as canoeing and boating trips on the Zambezi, and fishing for the renowned tiger fish.
