Zambezi National Park is conjoined with Victoria Falls National Park and both parks cover an area of 56 000 hectares.
This park consists of 40km of the Zambezi River frontage and boasts four of the big five: elephant, lion, buffalo and leopard. The Park is rich with herds of sable, kudu, impala, zebra, giraffe and other species of smaller wildlife, and over 400 species of birds have been recorded including the lanner falcon, goliath heron and the African skimmer among others.
The park covers an area of about 23.4km2 and has a dense rainforest which is watered by the spray from the Falls. The source of the mighty Falls is the Zambezi River that flows 2,700km through six countries on its journey from its source in north-western Zambia to the Indian Ocean.
The Zambezi river is also renowned for its prolific fishing experience with bream and tenacious tiger fish which make up part of over 75 fish species that may be found in the water.
Most of the park consists of Zambezian and Mopane savanna woodlands.
