Location: The Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia covers an area of 4,090 sq km. It is situated on the northern side of the Zambezi River
and enjoys about 120km of spectacular river frontage.
On the opposite side of the river is Zimbabwe's Mana Pools National Park, a World Heritage Site. Animals can freely cross the river between the two parks and as a
result wildlife is both prolific and varied. The Lower Zambezi offers an exceptional safari experience for visitors who have the choice of traditional game drives,
exploring the river and its many side channels by canoe, or fishing for tiger fish.
