Zambezi National Park Zimbabwe
Zambezi National Park Zimbabwe
Phenomenal Game Park Right on the Door Step of Victoria FallsZambezi National Park together with Victoria Falls National Park cover an area of 56,000 hectares. 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.
A wide variety of larger mammals may be found within the Zambezi National Park including elephant, lion, buffalo and leopard. In addition, herds of sable antelope, eland, zebra, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck and impala as well as many of the smaller species of game can be viewed.
Zambezi National Park in Zimbabwe has two main game-viewing sections:
The Zambezi River Game Drive, with an extensive network of roads along the river accessed through the main gate of the Park, and the 25 kilometre Chamabondo Game Drive in the southern part of the Park, which begins about 5 kilometres outside of Victoria Falls town – just off the main road to Bulawayo. The roads are in reasonable condition, but please note that they do close the park after heavy rains
Our page on Victoria Falls Weather details the best season for various activities in the Falls. Generally game will congregate towards the river in the drier months and as soon as the rains arrive in November/December they will start to move inland to give the riverine vegetation a chance to recover for next year.
It is within this park that the Upper Zambezi Canoe trips are conducted. You drive through the park to your put in point and then canoe back along the Zambezi River.
Discover safaris also operate several game viewing opportunities within the park namely, half day and full day game drives and walking safaris. They are also very privileged to have access till 8pm at night which makes them the only operators able to do night drives within this park. Read more about Discover Safaris here.
Zimbabwe National Parks has some excellent lodges along the river and there are some camping facilities as well. You can read more about that on our Zambezi National Park accommodation page
