Covering an impressive area of 56 000 hectares, the Zambezi National Park lies along the Zambezi River and forms a beautiful and natural border between the African countries of Zimbabwe and Zambia.
If your reason for embarking on a Victoria Falls Safari is to witness the beauty of Africa’s animals, then the Zambezi National Park is the perfect destination to do so. Not only does its location place it very close to the World Wonder of the Victoria Falls, but it also boasts a wide variety of mammals such as elephant, lion, buffalo and leopard, to name but a few.
When planning your Victoria Falls Safari to visit the Zambezi National Park then the best season to travel is generally during the drier months, when wildlife frequent the Zambezi River’s banks to stay hydrated. Rains arrive in November and drive the animals inland, giving the vegetation on the bank of the River a chance to recover.
You can try something a little different and enjoy a Zambezi River canoe trip that will allow you to explore the River on your own terms and, hopefully, encounter game on the River banks. Alternatively, you can keep it traditional and go on a game drive or walking safari, during the day or night, to ensure you’re able to make the most of fauna and flora that call the National Park their home.
Boasting an array of nature’s wonders, as well as a fun variety of activities, the Zambezi National Park is a worthwhile addition to any Victoria Falls Safari travel itinerary, particularly for those who wish to immerse themselves in the beauty of Africa.
