Canoeing Safaris

A canoeing trip down the more tranquil areas of the Upper Zambezi is one of the most relaxing ways to enjoy the Zambian safari experience but get up close to the river’s wildlife at the same time. Drift along the same waters as the legendary explorer David Livingstone himself, when in search of the rising clouds of mist as he famously quoted “scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”.
