Lower Zambezi Tours & Safaris


Types of Lower Zambezi Safaris

The Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia is ideal for authentic, off the beaten track wildlife safaris away from the crowds. The main reason for visiting this remote African wilderness is to view its abundant wildlife - be it on foot, by canoe, boat or 4x4 safari vehicle.

This untamed area is best known for tours that focus on fishing and canoeing, along with walking safaris and nature photography opportunities.

  • Game Fishing Safaris are a top favourite here, because the Lower Zambezi is Southern Africa’s most renowned location for catching tiger fish, along with other species.
  • Canoeing Safaris are also a top choice, given the unspoilt natural setting of the remote Lower Zambezi wilderness area. Canoeing safaris offer excellent game viewing and bird watching opportunities in the solitude of this beautiful national park.

Safaris to the Lower Zambezi generally include accommodation on the banks of the Zambezi River and a sunset boat cruise for laid-back game and bird viewing.

Discerning travellers have a small, but excellent selection of safari lodges to choose from in this secluded area, known for its flexible approach to personalised safaris. Safari accommodation ranges from spacious tented rooms, to private suites and luxurious villas overlooking the river.

Workshops in the Lower Zambezi

Lower Zambezi Safari options include joining like-minded travellers on specialised workshops that are offered at some of the luxury lodges, such as Baines’ River Camp. Guests can choose from courses in wildlife photography and bird watching, as well as African elephant workshops or learning to fly-fish at this renowned angling destination.

Safaris to the Lower Zambezi can usually be tailored to meet the requirements of specific travellers, a definite drawcard for the region.
