Useful Info

Other info to help you decide if the 5 Night / 6 Day Zambezi Great Canoe Trail is the right canoe safari for you:

“The Zambezi Was Long Standing Wish List”

“The Canoe trip itself, the scenery and amount of wild life we saw in natural habitat was just amazing. I took loads of pictures and video clips which were a great reminder of the trip when I got home. Very little effort or level of fitness was required, as we were heading down stream almost all the time. We always felt safe due to the expertise of Cuthbert (CB) who has been guiding these trips for over 20 years.”
