The Lower Zambezi National Park’s wildlife is centred around the floodplain along the northeastern side of the Zambezi River.

Situated in Zambia’s southern region, Lower Zambezi National Park was named the world’s first carbon-neutral national park in 2016 after a joint collaboration with lodge operators under the Lower Zambezi REDD+ Project.

Combined with Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe, this is one of Africa’s best places to see elephants, zebras, leopards, lions and many more.

Named after the Zambezi river which runs through it, the park provides a lifeline for more than 60 mammal species and 378 types of bird. Animals such as elephants, leopards, buffalo, waterbuck ( a type of antelope) and wild dogs can be spotted in the park.
