If you are a new traveler to Africa and are looking for a bit of adventure where memories will be created for life with wildlife experiences second to none, then this is the perfect safari for you.

The Ruwesi Canoe Trail is located within Mana National Park, covering a section of the middle Zambezi Valley. Canoe safaris run from the beginning of April and end in November each year where a minimum three-night experience is recommended.

All Ruwesi Canoe Trails begin with a safety briefing where answers to all questions are covered and safety measurements are put in place. They then begin with a leisurely 12 km paddle on the Zambezi River, the fourth largest in Africa, ending the first afternoon at Little Vundu. A full camp will have already been set up with refreshments and wholesome food awaiting guests arrival.
