Zambezi National Park

The Zambezi National Park is only a short drive from Zimbabwe’s adventure mecca, Victoria Falls. As such, it offers visitors to the area the ideal place at which to fit in some game viewing between extreme activities.

The park has two main game viewing routes; along the river, where there is constant wildlife traffic to and from the water, and the southern Chamabondo circuit that winds through the mopane woodlands where vast herds of buffalo and elephant thrive. In addition, numerous avian “specials” make this a birdwatcher’s paradise, including Pel’s Fishing Owl, African Finfoot and African Skimmer found along the river.

Plan Your Trip

Located just upriver from the magnificent Victoria Falls and with 50 km of stunning river frontage, the Zambezi National Park makes up for its relatively small size (560 sq.km) with its ease of access, spectacular riverine scenery and diverse fauna and flora. The Zambezi River embodies the essence of the park – attracting wildlife from far and wide to drink, and visitors to view the wildlife, often on exciting canoe or boat safaris. Four of the Big 5 can be viewed here (lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo) along with healthy populations of general game and excellent birding, particularly in Summer.
