Useful Info

Additional info to help you decide if the 3 Day / 2 Night Zambezi Short Canoe Trail is the right canoe safari for you:

“Experience Of A Lifetime In The Zambezi”

“I did a 5 days/4 nights canoeing tour in the Lower Zambesi which was the absolute highlight of my 2 weeks stay in Zambia. I had never been on a canoe before so the idea of spending several days paddling in a huge river full of hippos and crocs was somehow nerve-wracking. Thanks to the skills of our guide CB (from Zimbabwe) and the great dishes prepared every day by Best (a young Zambian) it turned out to be one of the best experiences I have ever had whilst travelling abroad.”
