This is what they had to say:
Canoe Safari. With each stroke of the paddle you’ll know that you are stirring a river where giants lurk in Zambia. And although the canoe is gliding ever-so-silently across the water’s still surface, you quickly get the feeling that you are being watched. Eyes of hippos and crocodiles pop up here and there, vanishing beneath the surface as swiftly as they appear. The mighty river’s banks in Lower Zambezi National Park are no less dramatic, with prowling lions, hulking elephants and a plethora of birdlife. Considering the closeness of the encounters, the experience feels as intimate as it does alarming. Unforgettable.
