The lower Zambezi river canoe safaris are unquestionably the best - with an ideal combination of unspoilt wilderness, some of the finest game and birdlife in sub-Saharan Africa. Truly excellent river guides with a great sense of fun and adventure with a capacity to host guests of all abilities and tastes.
Aside from the valley's magical scenery and some of the most spectacular sunsets you'll see, you're assured of seeing big game including hippo, buffalo, wild dog and elephant.
Our Recommended Canoe Safaris
Tamarind Canoe Safari$ 699
Our most popular lower Zambezi canoe safari over 4 days from Chirundu down to Mana Pools World Heritage Site. One of the best ways to experience big game and real African wilderness.
Unquestionably the best canoe safari in Africa
Lower Zambezi River - Chirundu to Mana Pools - 4 days/3 nights
Off the beaten track in Mozambique$ 1200
Niassa Reserve, Mozambique - 4 days/3 nights
These canoe expeditions are available on set departure dates only and for a minimum of four guests per trip.
A short canoe/walk/drive safari along the magical Lugenda River exploring the little known Niassa Reserve, a massive wilderness in northern Mozambique. This area has particularly good wild dog populations, a highly endangered African mammal. Even the flight into the reserve is exciting with magnificent giant inselbergs, large granite outcrops which are a feature of the region. This is Africa in her raw, beautiful and inspired state where you can walk, paddle and explore the wilderness with complete abandon. Combining this trip with a week on the beach afterwards makes for an ideal bush and beach safari with a difference!

Floods in southern Africa have opened up the Selinda Spillway for an adventurous canoe safari, travelling between the Okavango Delta and the Linyanti in northern Botswana.
