The Lower Zambezi has long been one of my favorite regions in Africa. The pure beauty of the area combined with the wide array of activities in the Lower Zambezi won my heart from my very first visit about a decade ago. In addition to standard game drives, visitors have the option of canoeing in the channels off the main river, walking safaris, world-class fishing, sunset cruises, and more, all while being surrounded by stunning scenery at every turn. However, my two most recent visits (August 2019 & June 2021) have catapulted the Lower Zambezi to the top of my list. What happened in those eight years to elevate it above other well-known parks and reserves? Two major things – most importantly the quality of game viewing & frequency of excellent predator sightings has increased significantly, and the overall quality of accommodation options has improved vastly.
