Useful Info

Additional info to help you decide if the 4 Day / 3 Night Zambezi Island Canoe Trail is the right canoe safari for you:

“The time on the river was simply fantastic.”

“The highlight was not necessarily in the amount or variety of game we saw (though there is plenty to spot and wonderful birdlife) but in the true escape into the African wilderness. Apart from the very occasional fisherman, we saw no-one else during our trip. We camped on sandbanks in the middle of the river with no facilities other than what we carried with us on the 3 canoes. The sounds of the river at dawn and the magnificent skies at sunrise and sunset will remain forever.”
