Understand

Location

Lower Zambezi National Park lies across from Mana Pools Reserve in Zimbabwe and 400 km downstream of the Victoria Falls.

Game drives and walks will often reveal big cats and on occasion, the African wild dog.

Get in

Visitors can drive into the park on their own but it is not recommended because it is very underdeveloped and not really structured for vehicle visitors. The existing lodges and canoeing operators provide the best access to the park. They all offer pick-ups from either Lusaka or Chirundu in Zambia or Kariba in Zimbabwe.

Fees and permits

As of 2016, the basic park fee is US$25 per day for non-Zambians. The fee allows for up to 24 hours of access to the park.

Get around

See

The best months to see game is July through September.

Do

Fishing is good along the river. Various private lodges offer day-long canoeing and fishing trips. Lodges offer safari tours, which are typically arranged at the crack of dawn (wake-up call before 6AM), in the late afternoon (past 4PM), and at night after sunset when high-powered spotlights are used to locate nocturnal animals.
