A name given to the escarpments forming on both sides of the rift valley, in which the middle Zambezi river and Lake Kariba lies.
Rising 500 to 600 m higher than lake Kariba or the Zambezi river, running from the Batoka Gorge roughly 800 km to the lower Zambezi, and facing each other about 50 to 100 km apart, closer in the west and opening up in the east.
The Lower Zambezi National Park
The southern boundary of the park is located on the Zambezi River, the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia.
This magnificent river is located to the south and has a undulating range of hills forming the Zambezi escarpment to the north, giving this National Park it’s incredible diversity of fauna and flora.
The Lower Zambezi National Park is now a regular destination in most Zambian safari itineraries.
