Our Mana Canoe Safari is a luxurious mobile camp where you leave camp with the sunrise and leisurely canoe your way to the next camp. Floating into camp with the sunset you will find an ice cold drink, hot shower and dinner being prepared. This 5 night safari follows the Zambezi River through the Mana Pools National Park. Canoeing offers guests a unique way of viewing game – you can glide up to elephants crossing the Zambezi and watch game coming down to the Rive to drink. Canoeing begins near the confluence of the Ruckomechi River and Zambezi River and continues along the Mana Pools shoreline to Illala Camp across from Chikwenya Island in the Mana Pools ‘Wilderness Area.’

All the camps used on this safari are fully backed up meaning you can sit back and relax in serenity of Mana Pools and the Zambezi. Camps have full waiter service, spacious walk in tents with en suite toilets and hot open air showers. All meals are freshly prepared on open campfires by experienced bush cooks and are enjoyed under the expanse of the African sky. All produce is brought in fresh and meals are prepared in camp by one of our experienced bush cooks. All breads and pastries are freshly baked on open campfires. Your canoe safari will include a supply of local beers, spirits, minerals, cordials, mineral water, tea, coffee and imported wines. Drinks are served by our friendly camp staff whilst guests relax in the peace and tranquillity of the safari.

We have included a night either side at Camp Zambezi which will ensure that you are well-rested before your canoe adventure begins on the first day and to allow you to relax on the last day.

Please note this safari runs seasonally from April – November and the minimun age is 14 years.

This safari is easy to extend and we can recommend another camp or lodge in Mana Pools before or after your walking safari. If you would like to see more of Zimbabwe we recommend flying into Harare and working your way over to Victoria Falls via Lake Kariba and Hwange National Park. Once in Victoria Falls we can extend your safari to Botswana, Zambia or Namibia – please ask!
