After a safety briefing by the professional river guide and a quick practice session on the water, the paddle begins. This is not a challenging paddle, navigating only small, easy rapids and no canoeing experience is required. We take a lazy paddle down the Upper Zambezi, looking out for hippos, buffalos, crocodiles, elephants, kudus, impalas and other untamed creatures along the banks. Canoeing along the river is also a great way to spot birds, look out for the powerful Martial Eagle, among the over 50 bird species commonly sighted. Canoeing along the river we pass national parks on the Zimbabwean banks and pristine bush on the Zambian side. This gentle paddle is all about soaking up the beautiful scenery and enjoying the local fauna and flora up close. Afterwards there's time for a picnic lunch on the riverbank.
