Experience the excitement of canoeing down Zimbabwe’s mighty Zambezi River

Experience the adventure of canoeing down the mighty Zambezi River through some of Africa’s most beautiful wilderness encountering magnificent wildlife. These canoe trails are operated by Natureways in the manner of early explorers, where everything is carried in the canoes. Imagine the thrill as your canoe passes close to a herd of elephants drinking in the river, or a pod of hippo wallowing in the shallows. No method of travel could bring you closer to the beauty and remoteness of the African bush.

Accommodation is in two-man dome tents on the shore. Canoe trails are semi-participatory, with each trip accompanied by 2 qualified canoe guides who will take care of all of the cooking, washing and other camp chores. Travellers are free to help out if they wish. Canoe trips range from 2 nights to 7 nights, covering a distance of approx 22 km daily. No prior canoeing experience is necessary, but you must be able to swim.
