Experience the Private Canoe Safari and Village Tour in Lower Zambezi Zambia
Come and experience this unique private tour of the Lower Zambezi on a Canoe plus a walk through Villages and mingle with local people. You will be greeted by the common call for sweets from little children as they wave at you all the way. Lots of smiles and laughter in their original african-zambian style.
All downstream, this is an easy going, enjoyable canoe ride, and no previous experience is necessary. We use stable 5m Canadian canoes, and all trips are accompanied by an experienced river guide. The best way to experience the Lower Zambezi River is by canoe.
Lower Zambezi National Park is in southern Zambia, on the Zimbabwean border. In the south, the Zambezi River valley is known for abundant wildlife, including buffalo, fish eagles and herds of elephants.
Canoes ply the river, which is home to hippos and crocodiles. In the east, the river passes past the striking red cliffs of Mupata Gorge, with its fish-filled waters. North is the steep and rugged Zambezi Escarpment.
