Zambezi Canoe Safari

Experience the magic of the upper section of the Zambezi River and experience it up-close and personal with a Zambezi Canoe Safari. Paddle your own canoe while following an expert guide to ensure safety as well as show you all the secret spots of this beautiful giant. Race through the currents or take it nice and easy for an exciting full day of exploring the channels and spotting all the different game along the shoreline.

The Zambezi Canoe Safari is tailored for all fitness and skill levels - in fact, majority of participants are first time canoeists so no previous experience is required. Qualified guides will keep you prepared for anything to come.

Be sure to bring shorts, river shoes, sunscreen, mosquito repellant, binoculars, cameras, towel, polarised sunglasses, a warm coat (if it’s during the winter) and a sun hat. Got that covered? you’re guaranteed to have a great time.

Zambezi Canoe Safari

Your adventure starts at the crack of daw, 07:00 AM at your accommodation in Victoria Falls Town. From there you’ll be transported to the Zambezi National Park, which includes a short game drive (which you may even be lucky enough to spot game on!)

A continental breakfast is served while the qualified guide runs through all the safety precautions such as the weather conditions, rapids, instruction and general information.

After chowing down on a hearty meal, your 18 kilometre canoeing journey begins. A downstream ride through two rapids, graded one and two. After the adrenaline rush, you’ll be taken to the mainland or a close by island for a delicious lunched picnic while you chatter with your companions before heading back to Victoria Falls around 02:00 PM.

It’s important to note that children under 7 years unfortunately cannot participate in this activity. If your child is over the age of 7 but the guides feel as though it’s not safe, they may not ride the canoes.
