My family and I stayed with Tusk and Mane Safaris.
The Lower Zambezi National Park, with the company, offered no Wi-fi, no internet, no phone signal and solar power only.
It re-booted our world.
530am wake up. We were busy dawn ‘til dusk. The bush noises over night and the sound of hippos echoing of the Zambezi serenaded a deep sleep; the stars were the last thing you see before rest.
A Lion call in the night is fabulous to rouse to; beats the neighbour’s car alarm.
We are saving to go again.

A pleasant and extremely positive surprise!

Lower Zambezi was a really pleasant experience! The only negative thing is that arriving there is quite complicate, but when you arribe, I have to admit that is worthwhile. Maybe the variety of wildlife is not that great (you mainly see hippos, elephants, buffaloes and crocodiles) but the scenery is just astonishing. I really recommend making a boat safari through the river, as you can interact from close distances with hippos and crocs, and you can see many details of their behaviour that you wouldn't be able to see if you did a normal game drive. if you are lucky you might see lions (I was lucky) and even leopards. Also good chances of spotting monitor lizard.

PD: If you self drive, do not take Leopard Hills as a road to arribe there as it is extremely dangerous.

The Lower Zambezi National Park adds the Zambezi River as another element to safaris. One day was spent floating down a side channel of the river in canoes, bringing a new perspective to seeing hippos in the water and crocodiles on the banks. Others fished for the noted tiger fish. Lunch was taken on boats on the river one day and we had our sundowner one the evening on the river.

Loved the canoeing down the canals with the hippos. Loved fishing and releasing Tiger fish. Such a nice end to trip staying and playing on the mighty Zambezi River.

THE most beautiful place in Africa.

The mighty Zambezi river, fourth largest in Africa and home of the mysterious river God, Nyami-Nyami, is the show piece of this remote National Park. The flood plain offers the best game viewing on land, while a boat cruise on the Zambezi, visiting some of the islands, is a wonderful experience.

Lower Zambezi is a great national park. Right on the Zambezi river, a favorite activity is Tiger fishing. I have stayed inside and outside the park. I recommend Kenyemba Lodge. It has a private island with game viewing opportunity, and is a short drive from the national park. It also has great food, and, located right on the river, is excellent for fishing.

Canoeing the Zambezi is a dream fulfilled.

We paddled the Zambezi on an 8 day 7 night canoe safari. The wildlife sightings are non-stop as you constantly pass through areas rich in hippos, crocodiles, rich bird life and elephants. Giraffes, lions, baboons, kudu, and more were spotted also during our trip, which we shall treasure a lifetime.

The roads, accommodations and guide service are all excellent in Zambia. Travelling from Lusaka to the area of the park is straightforward and easy.

Our guides on the trip were incredibly familiar with the area and were gracious hosts and ambassadors to their park. Zambia will greet you with a smile, and you will have a smile on your face when you depart as well.

Tranquility at its best.

From the comfort of the river, one can see Hippos [X], Elephants [X], BIRDS [X], Monkeys [X]. Of course, be sure to go to Victoria Falls too! Lovely Dinner Sunset Cruise (took it twice). Enjoyable Elephant Ride.There's ultralight gliding, white water rafting, and the Livingstone Museum.

Bring mosquito repellent. I was there in June/July and the mozzies came out at dusk.
