The Canoe Safari is operated on the fourth largest river in Africa, theMighty Zambezi. With an abundance of wildlife, flora and fauna this guided safari allows ample time to experience this majestic of rivers with ease.

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 closes 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 vegetation predominately consists of Ebonies, Waterberry, Palms and a tremendous variety of Acacia and Albizia. 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.

“An amazing day!”

We did the full day canoeing down the Zambezi. We were collected and taken to the landing site promptly, the guides was so knowledgeable and friendly. There was enough freedom whilst canoeing to enjoy the peace. The two man canoes were safe and sturdy. Lunch was fantastic – we had it on shore – with an abundance of water and drinks throughout the day. Saw lots of birds and animals! Great trip!

“Great Day of kayaking on The Zambezi. Good guides, good food, great fun for all, even non-canoeists!!”

We were up at reception at 8 o’clock, ready to go for a day kayaking on the Zambezi River. With guides Titus, Dominic and Caesar we took the minibus ride of approximately 40 minutes, to the launch point. With two people to each inflatable canoe we set off down the fast flowing Zambezi, pretty high due to the rains in Angola… I was with Dominic, as my wife was with Titus as a passenger but also team photographer! The rapids are only for the first 4 km; they were great fun, wet, but all of us were in swimming gear and T-shirts. We saw many birds before lunch. We stopped for a picnic which was really good; We had a lovely beef rolls, fruit and salad. An hour or so later we set off again, with the wind against us which luckily subsided. We saw hippos and crocodiles, fish eagle, and many other birds, none of which I can remember. It was fantastic. We finished at about 3.30, with sore back of legs, but spirits high after such an enjoyable and active day. We took this activity as the water was too rough for the white-water rafting. Who knows if we would have liked the white water rafting better or not. My wife certainly would not have done it. All 8 in our partly loved it.

“Great family canoe trip!”

Titus and Ceaser looked after us very well on our morning canoe down 8km of the Zambezi. Our two teenagers loved it too. They decided for strength and safety reasons that my husband and 16 year old son should row together, my daughter was with Titus at the front and Ceaser looked after me. Whilst it was exciting and a little nerve racking when we saw crocodiles and hippos, I ultimately felt like we were in safe hands. A great, fun morning which we will remember always.
