Lower & Upper Zambezi River
|Canoeing is undoubtedly one of the best
ways to experience the African bush.
Our safaris range in duration from a few hours to several days, either sleeping on the banks of the River, participating fully in camp life or enjoying the support and comforts of well established permanent camps.
Experienced professional guides accompany all the trips, sharing their knowledge and experience of the area with adventurers drawn to the River from all over the World. The necessary provisions are taken to ensure our clients safety and comfort. Where appropriate, firearms and effective radio communications accompany each guide and vehicle support is never far away. While on safari, all participants are covered by M.A.R.S.
