Safari Par Excellence operates Zambezi Canoeing Safaris in Livingstone on the Upper Zambezi, this is the section of the Zambezi River upstream of the Victoria Falls. This section of the Zambezi River offers great potential wildlife viewing combined with the excitement of running small Grade 2 rapids.
Canoe trips offer the chance to see game such as hippo, crocodile, elephant, giraffe and numerous birdlife. Safpar offer half day, full day or an overnight trip.
If you are a camping enthusiast or are aspiring to be why not get away from the world for the night with an Overnight Canoe Safari. A day canoeing is followed by a night camping at a permanent camp site on the banks of the Zambezi. The camp site overlooks the National Park on the Zimbabwean bank, as the sun comes down plentiful game can often be seen drinking.
When canoeing on the Zambezi River Safpar uses state of the art two person inflatable canoes. These craft are incredibly stable when running small rapids yet are easy to manoeuvre and paddle.
