Description de l'activité

The canoeing trail operates above the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe on the 60km stretch of the Zambezi River between the Matetsi border with the Zambezi National Park and the entrance of the National Park in Victoria Falls, running along the banks of the Zambezi National Park.

All canoe trails pass along the banks of the Zambezi National Park, and in the case of the half and full day trips they also end up with the Mosi oa Tunya National Park on the Zambian side. For this reason you'll have a good opportunity of viewing various species of animals, such as elephants, buffaloes, impala, kudu, hippos, crocodiles etc. The birdlife is prolific with at least 50 common species of bird that can be seen from your craft.

The vegetation predominately consists of ebonies, water berries, palms and a tremendous variety of acacia and albizia. The rapids are small and at their peak are only classed as grade two, which is the second easiest grade. 

The Upper Zambezi has numerous heavily wooded islands, which are dissected by channels that may be several kilometres in length and vary in width from one to twenty metres. 

This section of the river is quite unlike the better-known section below Lake Kariba. The Upper Zambezi River is regarded as free flow, as a dam cannot control the water flow and as such the water is subject to seasonal variation. Floods begin in November and normally peak in April/May. Therefore, throughout the season the route varies as new channels open with the fluctuations in water levels.

Full day and overnight trip: Pick up 7:30am - 8:00am
Drop off on day two: 4:30pm - 5:00pm

This trip starts further up the river than the overnight trip so as to cover double the river mileage, thus increasing the chances of wildlife sightings. The overnight campsite for this safari is the Chundu Camping area located in the Zambezi National Park.

- You'll be picked up from lodging and transferred to Savanna Lodge for check in.
- You'll enjoy a game drive from Savanna (approximately 90 minutes) to the canoe start point, which is 12 km upriver of the Chundu campsite.
- Tea, coffee and breakfast consisting of bacon and egg rolls will be served on the banks of the Zambezi
- On arrival a professional river guide will give you a safety talk.
- You'll then practise your paddling skills before setting off on the canoe safari.

- In the morning you'll be awoken by the early rays of sunshine, after some tea or coffee, you'll enjoy a full English breakfast on the banks of the river.
- Once breakfast has settled, you'll start your second day of canoeing. This day is the same stretch of river used for the full day canoe trips and so the trip format is the same. You'll have lunch on an island and will eat cold meats and salads, followed by an afternoon of paddling ending at the take out point by the mine fields. 
- You'll enjoy soft drinks and beers before being transferred back to your respective lodging by 5:00pm. An earlier transfer can be arranged for clients, if required.
