Community tour, National Park Self Drive Tour
Come and experience this unique tour of the Lower Zambezi.
This tour will take us down to near the confluence of Luangwa and Zambezi rivers, somewhere within the corridors of Lower Zambezi National Park in Eastern part of Zambia and along the border of Mozambique. Depending on road terrain we may or not reach the confluence itself but pass through nice scenic areas of the park and view a variety of game. The tour will also be packed with various siting including interacting with some local people. You may have chance to share light moment with the villagers in Lower Zambezi. You will be able to hear about how they live life to the fullest, you will be able to hear how they survive on a simple but major meals for a day all year round.
