Wild Horizons Upper Zambezi Canoeing

Canoe trips for two or three days on an adventure when guests paddle their own canoes following their qualified canoe guide on the Upper Zambezi River.

An authentic camping experience is offered at Kalai River Camp, a mobile rustic bush camp, situated approximately 25kms upstream from Victoria Falls in the Zambezi National Park. 

The camp is fully backed up by a team of staff that set up camp in preparation for the client’s arrival. The camp comprises of large walk in tents, equipped with camp beds, mattresses, sheets, pillows and duvets, camping water basin (which are filled with hot water each morning), a paraffin lantern, a bedside table and hand towels. There is also a portable toilet and hot shower in camp.

The camp and dining table are set up under the stars on the riverbank with stunning views of the river.

These canoeing safaris include game drives in the Zambezi National Park, riverside camping, Grade 1 and 2 rapids, picnics on remote islands and exploring secret overhung channels.  The silence of the canoes makes them unbeatable for bird and game viewing.  This is novice canoeing and no previous experience is required. The group size may range from two to twenty guests although Big 5 Safaris can organize custom made canoe safaris to suit our clients’ wishes.
