Zambia attraction - Lower Zambezi National Park is becoming one of Zambia's greatest attractions. It is situated opposite the Mana Pools National Park and makes the ideal canoeing safari destination.

Lower Zambezi National Park is still relatively undeveloped, but it’s beauty lies in it’s absolute wilderness state. The diversity of animals is not as wide as the other big parks, but the opportunities to get close to game wandering in and out of the Zambezi channels are spectacular. The Park lies opposite the famous Mana Pools Reserve in Zimbabwe, so the whole area on both sides of the river is a massive wildlife sanctuary.
 
The Lower Zambezi National Park covers an area of 4092 square kilometers, but most of the game is concentrated along the valley floor. There is an escarpment along the northern end which acts as a physical barrier to most of the parks animal species. Enormous herds of elephant, some up to 100 strong, are often seen at the rivers edge. ‘Island hopping’ buffalo and waterbuck are common. The park also hosts good populations of lion and leopard and listen too for the ubiquitous cry of the fish eagle.
 
Fishing (tiger fishing) is a must and the lodges usually provide this as an activity.

Several operators run 3 - 5 day trips, over-nighting at very comfortable bush camps on the banks of the river. These are highly recommended. The river has a strong enough current to take you easily down the river with little effort. The river guides will take you down remote channels between the islands where your opportunities to get close to game are very high. Hippos are always in sight, elephant, zebra, puku, impala, buffalo, kudu and baboons can be seen browsing on the banks from the laid back comfort of your canoe.

Due to the river levels, most of the camps/lodges are open from beginning to mid April to mid November (although a few can still operate all year).
 
The best time is mid season from June to September, but all lodges and canoeing safari operators are open from April to November. Fishing is at its best in September to March.
