The Zambezi National Park, 4092 square kilometres in total, is situated directly opposite the Mana Pools National Park In Zimbabwe. This extensive tract of land creates a spectacular stretch of undeveloped wilderness. The majesty of the park is not found in a great diversity of game species, but in the ability to get close to game sightings. Zambezi National Park offers a rare opportunity to experience a wilderness virtually untouched by human development, while on a safari in Zimbabwe.
The majority of the game is concentrated in the valley region of the park. The true beauty is found along the meandering channels of the Zambezi River and in the canopies of the huge Ebony and Fig trees which line the river bank. The Zambezi National Park lodges and canoeing operators are open from April to November, however the best months are from June to September. December and January are extremely hot but game viewing along the river banks is abundant.
The access to the Zambezi National Park is best supplied directly from the lodges and canoe operators. There are collection points in Lusaka and Chirundu. A pontoon is available from April. Road access is only possible in 4x4 vehicles and not recommended for first time visitors. See recommended The Zambezi National Park safaris in Zimbabwe.
