“Amazing Experience! Can’t Recommend It More”

“The experience was unbelievably good and beat all of our expectations. Our guide CB was phenomenal and we were ultimately sad that we hadn’t booked a longer trip. The tour is a must-do if you visit Zambia and is suitable for people with all levels of canoeing experience.”
