False Lower Zambezi 30 Travel Zambia May 2008 Nature on the Lower Zambezi comes in many different guises, from the savagery of lions pulling down a kudu to the serenity of a morning spent drifting downstream. BOTH PICTURES: STEPHEN CUNLIFFE

False LOWER ZAMBEZI: Where to stay There is a good choice of accommodation, from lodges to campsites, situated both inside the park and in the Chiawa Game Managament Area ( GMA) to the west. With advance booking and a 4WD, you can drive yourself into any of these, but most people arrange for a transfer by road or air.
