The Lower Zambezi National Park is situated only 20 minutes drive from Kasaka. The beauty of this park is that is it relatively untouched and offers a range of different habitats.

Activities are tailored to make the most of this incredibly diverse wilderness.

Game viewing is offered in a variety of forms, game drives designed to completely immerse you in the amazing natural wonders of wild Africa; a leisurely canoe safari; a river safari navigating the islands and main channels of the mighty Zambezi; or the thrill of a walking safari. Kasaka also cater for both the serious angler and patiently helping first timers whose excitement of catching their first fish is always a pleasure. And for those interested in the rich cultural heritage of the area, community visits can be arranged.

The Zambezi

At just over 4000 square kilometers, the Lower Zambezi National Park stretches in a narrow swathe from the Chongwe River in the west to the Luangwa River in the east. Rich in biodiversity, there are a number of biomes, or eco-systems in the park, ranging from jessbush thickets, miombo woodland in the escarpment, grassy floodplains and riparian forests.

Like the adjacent Chiawa Partnership Park, the Lower Zambezi National Park is home to all of the major species in the valley with excellent sightings of elephant, buffalo, lion and leopard a regular occurrence. Bird life in the area is also outstanding, making this a real hot spot for ornithologists.
