The Lower Zambezi National Park offers one of Zambia's premier wildlife areas with abundant bird and animal life. Located on the banks of the beautiful Zambezi River and bordered on the northern side by the Muchinga escarpment, the park offers remarkable natural beauty and scenery. The Zimbabwean World Heritage Site, Mana Pools Reserve, is situated on the opposite bank forming a natural transfrontier park and creating a large sanctuary for wildlife. The valley floor offers abundant game as well as along the river offering good land and water-based game viewing opportunities. The park is host to large herds of elephant and healthy populations of lion, leopard, side striped jackal, hyena, hippo, buffalo, zebra, waterbuck, and many other antelope. Less common are the African wild dog and aardvark. The Lower Zambezi National Park offers incredible bird- watching with over 300 species recorded in the area.
