Within the beautiful and remote Lower Zambezi National Park, we prefer the lodges closest to the Zambezi River. Set in the lush riverine bush, these lodges offer an excellent safari experience with game viewing activities both on the water and with game drives and bush walks. The camps are far from each other so you're unlikely to see any other safari vehicles or people, giving you the feeling that you alone are privileged to enjoy this pristine piece of paradise.
Most of the accommodation here is small, owner-run safari camps that offer outstanding hospitality and safari guiding. The lodges themselves vary from rustic and simple to lavish luxury and get consistently great reviews. Less well-known than its sister across the river, Zimbabwe's Mana Pools, Zambia's Lower Zambezi National Park is a beautiful park with magnificent ancient trees, lush grasslands and interesting landscapes. But it's probably best known for the abundance of game that congregates here, especially in the dry season from June to October.
