Discover the Zambezi and Luangwa Rivers.

The majestic Zambezi and the captivating Luangwa Rivers meander through Zambia‘s two primary destinations: the renowned South Luangwa National Park and the Lower Zambezi National Park.

Nestled between the rugged Zambezi escarpment and the expansive Zambezi River, the Lower Zambezi boasts a picturesque landscape. Spanning 120 kilometers within the park, the Zambezi River, protected by Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park on the opposite bank, serves as a haven for wildlife. Its intricate network of channels, lagoons, sandbanks, and islands is complemented by open plains, woodlands, and bush areas. The river’s allure is irresistible, offering opportunities for boating, drifting, canoeing, and fishing, all amidst breathtaking vistas. Anglers will delight in the thrill of tiger fishing (practiced on a catch-and-release basis), making it a destination worth dedicating a week to.

The unspoiled expanse of the South Luangwa National Park stands as one of Zambia’s natural treasures, boasting a diverse array of wildlife. Enveloping the Luangwa River, celebrated for its unspoiled splendor and rich wildlife, the park remains largely untouched by human intervention. Its seasonal flooding renders much of the park inaccessible by road, preserving it as a sanctuary for its abundant game population. Bird enthusiasts will revel in the park’s avian diversity, with over 450 species gracing its skies. Among the park’s inhabitants are elephants, buffaloes, hippos, giraffes, leopards, and lions, ensuring an unforgettable safari experience.
