Lower Zambezi

This park in Zambia is still relatively undeveloped, but its beauty lies in its absolute remoteness and pure wilderness of it all.

The range of animals is not as large as the other big parks, but the opportunities to get close to the game wandering in and out of the Zambezi channels are spectacular. It is a great spot for fishing, and the river offers up plenty of healthy tiger fish and bream catches. Canoeing is a must-do and you can float down the river at your leisure with your guide who will give you opportunities to get as close as you dare to the game on the river banks.

The best time to go for a game-watch is from June to September, and fishing is at its best in September and October.
