Get close to elephants and hippos at Lower Zambezi National Park, a protected wildlife viewing area along the northwestern bank of the Zambezi River. Gently sloping from a steep escarpment into a flood plain dotted with acacia trees, the park houses a wide variety of wildlife, including lions, leopards, cheetahs, buffalos, zebras, baboons, and bushbucks. Colorful bee-eaters and over 400 other bird species populate and nest in these lush areas. A private game reserve until 1983, the park was declared national property to curb poaching and currently covers 4,200 sq km (1,622 sq mi).
