Zambezi National Park
  • Zambezi National Park, together with Victoria Falls National Park, covers an area of 56,000ha.

  • The northern border of the Park is formed by the great Zambezi River which also forms the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia for much of its length.

  • Zambezi River Game Drive has an extensive network of roads along the river accessed through the main gate of the Park.

  • Chamabondo Game Drive in the southern part of the Park begins about 5km outside of Victoria Falls town and stretches 25km in length.

  • The river’s edge is overhung in many parts with a fringe of ebony and fig trees.

  • The floodplain is enclosed by mopane forest interspersed with acacia trees which provide a shady canopy. 

  • Hosts a wide variety of larger mammals including elephant, hippo, lion, buffalo, leopard and giraffe, as well as herds of sable antelope, eland, zebra, kudu, waterbuck and impala.

  • Ideal for bird spotting with over 400 recorded species.

  • The river is teaming with 75 species of fish and is famous for its bream and fighting tiger fish.

  • Fish eagles can be seen and heard for miles around.

  • Guided walks and canoeing safaris are available.

  • Best to visit during the dry winter season from June to September, although fishing is at its peak in September/October.
