Lower Zambezi National Park

The Lower Zambezi National Park lies on the north bank of the Zambezi River. Until 1983 when the area was declared a national park, the area was the private game reserve of Zambia's president. This has resulted in the park being
protected from the ravages of mass tourism and remains one of the few pristine wilderness areas left in Africa. The attraction of the Lower Zambezi park is its remote location. Unlike South African parks, there are no paved roads and you are very unlikely to encounter another tourist whilst traveling around. Tourist numbers are minimized due to the park being inaccessible by road, unless one has advanced 4x4 driving skills and even then only at certain times of the year. Most large mammals in the national park congregate on the floodplain, including the Cape buffalo, a large elephant population, lion, leopard, many antelope species, crocodile and hippopotamus. Occasional sightings of the Cape wild dog occur throughout this park which is one of Zambia's best strongholds for them. There are also a large number of species of birds.
