The Zambezi Valley is unquestionably the best location in Africa to combine the thrill of a walking safari under the direction of an armed Professional Guide, with the adventure of a canoe safari and experience "big game" over a week-long break. It's going to be difficult to find a better starting point for an African Safari...

The action takes place in Matusadona National Park and on the Mana Pools shoreline of the Zambezi River.

  • In Matusadona you find one of Africa's highest populations of lions and one of the last remaining wild sanctuaries of the endangered black rhino. This National Park is located beneath the rugged escarpment on the shores of Lake Kariba - it's wildlife and topography is diverse.

  • On the lower Zambezi, you canoe along the Mana Pools shoreline: a World Heritage Site renowned for its unique scenery, open floodplains, and abundance of large game and birdlife.
