Paddle a stretch of the Zambezi and journey into our wilderness, an area which we hold very close to our hearts. Our Mopane Canoe Safari follows the mighty Zambezi from Mana Pools to Chewore.
Escape for 4 days of mobile island camps, hurricane lamps and campfires in game rich Mana Pools. Home to 380 species of bird, buffalo, elephant, antelope and lion.
Canoeing is easy as we travel along 70 km of the shoreline through the National Park stopping off for picnics, siestas and game viewing along the way. If you haven’t canoed before, it’s not a problem but you should have a reasonable level of fitness.
