Born to be wild

Lower Zambezi National Park (Zambia)

A fly-camping safari along the Zambezi River, in one of the wildest and most remote parks of Southern Africa, to go back to basics, catch the essence of nature and become part of it.

In the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park.


4 or 5 days, of which 3 days in the tented base camp and 1 or 2 days in fly-camps on the Zambezi River.


The tented base camp is located in the Rufunsa Valley, at the foot of the Zambezi valley escarpment, and is equipped with 4 tents with long drop bathroom, en-suite bucket shower and private veranda. The fly-camps are located on Kulefu Island and Buffalo Island, two islands in the Zambezi River, and they are equipped with 4 mosi-net tents, stretcher beds raised off the ground and two sharing bathrooms.


Day and night game drives in 4×4 open vehicles, walking safaris, boat and canoe safaris, fishing.


The escarpment on the northern edge of the park acts as a physical barrier for the resident game that concentrates along the valley floor. Along the banks and on the islands of the Zambezi River huge herds of elephant and buffalo, zebra and many antelope species congregate, while the river is home to hippo, crocodiles and tigerfish. Among the predators there is a good number of lions, leopards and a small African wild dog population. More than 400 birds species have been identified in the park.


During the dry season, from May to October.


The simple, authentic style and the privacy of the camps, which host maximum 8 people and can be booked also on a private basis. The uniqueness of the fly-camps location, on two islands in the Zambezi River, and of the experience they offer. The Lower Zambezi National Park is remote, untouched and still not well known. The park is a paradise for water activities, particularly canoeing and fishing, and for walking safaris.
