Loads of Zambezi River wildlife in a pristine state

Written on: March 24, 2015   |   I visited in September 2011 This park lies opposite the famous Mana Pools Reserve in Zimbabwe, so the whole area on both sides of the river is an enormous wildlife sanctuary. This park is still relatively undeveloped, but its beauty lies in its pristine 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 wonderful.
Large herds of elephant are often seen at the rivers edge. Buffalo and waterbuck are also present. The park has a good amount of lion and leopard. I especially love the lower Zambezi because you are right on the river.

Great for a boat tour and for viewing loads of elephants, though!

The whole area around Vic Falls is stunning and a great place to do it all in a relatively short period of time. I visited the Zambezi National Park several times during my working time in Africa as the overland trip which included the falls was always the most popular.

Close to Livingstone and ease of entry meant we could do a day's game drive/boat ride without... read more

I loved canoeing on the Zambezi, but it is not for the faint of heart. Lots of elephant, crocs and hippos up close and personal. Very exciting, to say the least.
