Brass Monkeys on safari

Shearwater Canoeing Safaris pioneered canoeing on the Zambezi between Kariba and Kanyemba (270km) in 1982.

Since this time these Canoe Safaris and the Zambezi have remained the same, untouched by the world's developments. The flat meandering river is prime water on which to take part in an adventurous expedition of a lifetime - unattainable elsewhere on the planet!

Robin Brown - the new Manager of Shearwater's Kariba canoeing operation

In July 1998, Robin Brown, a Professional River and Walking Guide took on the management of Shearwater Canoeing Safaris. Robin is a 26 year old Zimbabwean, born and schooled in Zimbabwe. He is well experienced in both the guiding and management arenas, having spent four years as a safari guide and three years in management within the Shearwater group. His focus is on maintaining the adventurous, expeditionary nature of the experience, whilst maximising safety and support and providing top guides, vehicles and equipment.
