The Lower Zambezi is a haven for wildlife and bird lovers with 60 mammal species and 378 bird species. Elephant, hippo and a diversity of plains game are abundant throughout the park. It also boasts a healthy lion and leopard population with sightings of hyena and wild dog common. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of game viewing in the Lower Zambezi is the sheer variety of activities on offer. In addition to the traditional game drives and walking safaris, the Zambezi River allows for a variety of additional river-based activities and experiences that few, if any, other destinations can offer.
