LOWER ZAMBEZI – THE LAND THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
BY REBECCA AYLETT
My journey time to Lusaka was thoroughly rewarded by the subsequent light aircraft flight to the Lower Zambezi. As we flew over the incredibly diverse terrain we were teased with glimpses of elephant and hippo below. I could tell that this trip was going to be one that I would never forget.
Chiawa sits on the bank of the Zambezi offering jaw dropping sunsets, incredible hospitality as well as top quality accommodation. Game viewing, like most properties in Zambia, can be enjoyed from a vehicle as well as on foot, but one of the most immersive ways for me was whilst relaxing on a river boat. The elephants traverse the rivers “delta like” channels to feed on the grasses of the rivers’ many islands offering us so many Attenborough style photo opportunities with hippos and birds adding to the rich diversity of this region.
