Experience Canoeing Through Some of Africa’s Most Beautiful Wilderness

Paddling the waterways of Africa is a must-do for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy a little physical activity along with the freedom of exploring some of the continent’s most captivating wilderness areas at a relaxed pace.

See wildlife from a completely different perspective and enjoy being able to approach truly wild creatures far more quietly – and thus, much closer – than in a vehicle. Imagine the thrill of passing a herd of bathing elephants for instance, or a pod of wallowing hippos as you almost silently glide down the mighty Zambezi River. Botswana’s Selinda Spillway also offers paddling if water levels are high enough – so you can travel like explorers of old; sit back in the comfort of your canoe and let the birds and animals come to you.

Paddle Africa’s Rivers

Our canoe safaris are accompanied by professional guides, with flexible itineraries incorporating plenty of time for gameviewing or bird-watching, with the possibility of travelling partway on foot where conditions dictate. Accommodation is either at comfortable fully-serviced camps with hot water bucket showers or tranquil lodges situated along scenic riverbanks.
