The Lower Zambezi National Park boast over 500 species of birds. A ground hornbill can be spotted from the branches of the mopane trees, a tiny red-billed firefinch might serenade you from your private balcony, while the mournful cry of the African fish eagle reverberates across the river. Zambia’s natural wilderness is home to an expansive variety of birds, a dream destination for the enthusiastic birdwatchers.
At Anabezi and Amanzi camps, the carmine bee-eaters migrate to a nesting site just upstream, while ospreys and yellow-billed kites keep a close eye on boats headed out fishing, hovering overhead in anticipation of a free lunch.
