The Lower Zambezi Park is the water experience of Zambia. A haven for elephants and those with a pachyderm passion, bush camps are scattered along the water's edge and are great settings for watching the river activity. A chance to explore this region by boat is highly recommended.

There is a wonderful selection of camps and accommodations avaiable in Lower Zambezi, including Chiawa, Old Mondoro and Sausage Tree Camp.

Experience the best Zambezi rafting and safari with Abercrombie and Kent.
