Lower Zambezi National Park
As Zambia becomes better known as a safari destination, it still retains its essence of true wilderness; a place that doesn’t feel overtaken by humans, thus providing an unpredictable safari experience. (An indispensable element if you are seeking an exhilarating and unforgettable trip.) Therefore, it is necessary to enter this country with a deep respect for the purity of the wildlife areas, the kindness of the people welcoming travelers with warmth and hospitality, some of the best guides in the entire country and the remoteness of the camps. Welcome to Zambia, where natural beauty still determines the rhythm.
So, what is it in the Lower Zambezi that attracts so many wildlife enthusiasts? Well, make yourself comfortable, because the list is long. UNESCO declared several areas of the Lower Zambezi World Heritage sites, mainly because it is home to a ‘remarkable concentration of wildlife’. Simply put: the Lower Zambezi is famous for its big game. And that is one of the reasons why you want to venture out to this part of Africa. Think: mind-blowing herds of elephants and buffaloes, an impressive population of Nile crocodiles, plus predators such as lions, leopards and the African wild dog. Together with the wildlife, there is the big blue Zambezi River. Flowing gently due to its subtle gradient, it is perfect for canoeing. All this with a backdrop of the majestic Zambezi escarpment that gradually slopes down to meet the river.
