Chongwe River Camp Game Viewing and Activities

The Lower Zambezi National Park is one of Zambia's premier wildlife areas with abundant bird and animal life. Located on the banks of the beautiful, clear Zambezi River and bordered on the northern side by the Muchinga escarpment, the park has some exceptionally picturesque 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. Abundant game occurs in the valley floor and along the river offering fantastic 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 is an important bird area. Over 300 species of birds can be found in the area. The African fish eagle, Zambia's national bird is commonly seen and heard. Huge flocks of red winged pratincole may be seen.
