The Zambezi River winds through the pristine floodplains of the Mana Pools National Park - a critical life force in Southern Africa. Embark on the Mana Canoe Trail Safari, an experiential trek by foot and canoe down the river with well-appointed dome tent camping each evening.
Travelers seeking an authentic safari experience along the banks of the Zambezi will thrill at the opportunity to paddle silently in a two-person canoe. At the end of the journey guests will have traveled over 40 miles down the river and from one end to the other of Mana Pools National Park. A typical safari experience includes three nights in the wilderness, but custom journeys are always possible.
Encounters with hippo and elephant are almost certain both along the banks of the river and on the plains traversed on foot with armed guides. Close encounters are not uncommon on these intimate jaunts through the wilderness.
Arrive to the exclusive campsite after a day of paddling to find an inviting scene: tables and chairs set for dinner facing the river and large private tents, at a comfortable height to stand in, appointed with cozy portable beds, linens, a bucket shower and safari toilet. All meals are prepared in camp by the chef who travels with the group, ensuring all dishes are at their peak of freshness. Bottled water and juices are available during the safaris with cordials, local beer and wine served at dinner.Request Information
