One of the best ways to experience the true beauty of the river and get up close to animals on the river banks is by canoe. These trips are arranged with professional guides who have a vast knowledge of the wildlife and birdlife of the area. There are few things more relaxing than drifting gently down the river in a canoe. Whether exploring the hyacinth studded channels, getting up close to elephant, buffalo and hippo or bird watching, this is the best way for guests to experience the Zambezi. There is the option of morning, evening or full day excursions.
