River Horse Expeditions was historically one of the first canoe safari operators in the Lower Zambezi and we proudly have a 20-year safety record.

We put this down to two key ingredients... respect and knowledge.

Our Guides are extremely respectful - affording wildlife right of way whilst on the water and allowing hippo, in particular, space to seek the safety of deep water. After many years of being on the river, our guides have developed an intimate knowledge of how best to navigate their groups safely downstream. We take all necessary precautions to ensure our guests have a safe and pleasurable canoeing experience with us. Our Guides have been trained and qualified through the National Guides Association and each have spent years gaining the necessary river experience required to lead these trips.


Ant has a lifetime of experience and specialist expertise in navigating the Zambezi in a way that balances safety and excitement. 


Denise loves to ensure that every client’s needs is not only met, but exceeded, so everyone leaves with memories for life. 


Head Guide Cuthbert, better known as CB, is the definition of a world-class guide driven by an insatiable passion to share the best of the Zambezi.
