Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia (4092 km²) is a park that is still relatively undeveloped: its beauty lies in its 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 Zambezi River is a massive wildlife sanctuary

4 nights at Royal Zambezi Lodge. Located on the opposite bank to Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools, the Royal Zambezi Lodge is situated on the majestic Zambezi River. This intimate, family-owned lodge makes the most of the environment in which it is situated, letting nature provide guests with a magnificent setting for their African holiday. The lodge is positioned to allow visitors to take full advantage of a wide variety of safari activities in the area, which is home to elephant, buffalo, lion and the elusive leopard! Activities are offered by highly experienced guides, with over 50 years of experience in the Lower Zambezi region.
