The Lower Zambezi is a haven for some of Africa’s most iconic species including elephants, great herds of buffalo, crocodiles, lions, leopard and hippo. The area is also regarded as arguably one of the best leopard viewing locations on the planet. Strangely, giraffe and wildebeest have never been present in the park. The area is also a birder’s paradise, with some 378 species having been identified.
Safaris are an intimate affair at Old Mondoro, where a small number of guests means you always have a high guide to guest ratio. 4×4 open safari vehicle safaris are complimented by excellent walking safaris, boat and canoe based safaris and catch and release angling. Night drives are also included, using special red-filtered spotlights, which do not dazzle the game.
