Highlights

One of the finest ways to see magnificent African wildlife is on a canoeing safari on the Upper Zambezi River above the flow of Victoria Falls.

Why you'll love this

The Upper Zambezi River is a beautiful place for canoeing, with stunning vegetation such as ebonies, water berries, palms and a tremendous variety of acacia and Albizia. The Canoe Trail whilst operated in Zambia passes through National Parks located in Zimbabwe, and the pristine bush land of Zambia where there is a possibility of chances to see game such as hippo, crocodile, elephant, giraffe and numerous birdlife. On offer are ½ day, full day or an overnight trip where the evening is spent in tents by the riverside and a delicious meal and cool drinks are enjoyed under the beautiful African skies.

The Canoe Safari is operated on the fourth largest river in Africa, the Mighty Zambezi. With an abundance of wildlife, flora and fauna this guided safari allows ample time to experience this majestic river with ease. You’ll paddle downstream on a relaxing adventure and enjoy incredible sightings of birdlife, elephant, buffalo, hippo and crocodile who share their domain with you.


The Upper Zambezi River is regarded as “free flow” and as such the water is subject to seasonal variation. Water levels begin to rise in December and normally peak in April / May. Therefore,throughout the season the route varies as channels open and close with the rise and fall in water levels.
 

The Upper Zambezi has numerous heavily wooded islands, which are dissected by channels that may be as much as several kilometres in length and vary in width from one to twenty meters. The rapids are small and at their peak are only classed as grade two, which as categorized by the British Canoe Union is the second easiest grade.

Availability

Canoeing trips are available 365 days a year. However, during the rainy season (December to March) we may not be able to run the trip if there has been large quantities of rain as the roads become impassable so we are unable to drive to the canoe put in and take out points.
