Zambezi Expeditions

Exceptional game viewing and adventure at Zambezi Expeditions

Canoeing safaris in Zimbabwe on the great Zambezi river from Mana Pools National Park include fully guided tented itineraries with exceptional game viewing and walking adventures with the reputable Zambezi Expeditions mobile tented safaris. 

If you are keen on classic safari-style adventure, then this temporary camp is definitely it. Enjoy unpretentious luxury in 5 mobile tents, complete with typical old-style safari furniture and open-air bucket showers to boot. Spend your days immersed in nature before returning to alfresco dining on the banks of the famous Zambezi River within the famous Mana Pools National Park, a majestic watery kingdom for diverse mammals and plants, birds and reptiles. Try out some tiger fishing and hop into a canoe to paddle downstream and you may see elephants swimming across the huge flowing river. 

Only 6 tents for 12 visitors are set up in a mobile camp just before you arrive and you spend your days in the great wilderness walking, canoeing, game driving, boating and fishing. Look forward to a game drive along the flood plain in a 4×4 vehicle to explore the lush vegetation where leopards lurk. Return to glamping comfort where you can sleep well in double beds, grab a hot shower and sit around a fire dining on excellent grilled meats and vegetables. 

We recommend a few days at the nearby Kanga Camp to walk and explore inland watering holes and tall old trees, get the best of game drive safaris and walking adventures, canoeing and boating in a pristine wilderness with people who really care about wildlife and tourism. Kanga Camp allows for wonderful, quiet observation of the animals as they come to the watering hole and all staff go the extra mile for guests – delicious food, under the stars, and top South African wines.

Overview

Experience the best of Mana Pools right on the edge of the famous Zambezi River when you book yourself a stay in one of 5 luxury tents at Zambezi Expeditions. Perfect for families, small groups and even couples in search of the ultimate Zimbabwe honeymoon escape, this wonderful mobile tent safari offers you a chance to get back to your roots and immerse yourself in nature in one of the most spectacular settings to be found in Zimbabwe. 

Zambezi Expeditions is stationary yet mobile in the sense that it is only set up just before you arrive. It is always best to stay for two nights or more to get the most out of your bushveld experience so bring your spouse, your best friends or your family and spend a week exploring the magic of Mana Pools and the Zambezi River. 

Another idea is to combine this outdoor safari with a few days at Kanga Camp, giving you access to both inland and riverside experiences.  This larger seasonal camp is built around the only permanent water hole in one Mana Pools region where walking safaris are a huge hit and excursions into the Zambezi flood plain a highlight.

A wildlife holiday at Zambezi Expeditions includes exhilarating river-based activities such as fishing and canoeing plus 4X4 game viewing in the floodplains. Get out on a daily bush walk to find the Big 5, including black rhino. Other animals you are likely to come across include the African wild dogs, hyenas and eland, among other species. The park has prolific birdlife, with nearly 400 species recorded!

Sleep in understated luxury in 5 mobile tents at Zambezi Expeditions with some legendary traditional furniture thrown in to add a touch of classic safari style. Each canvas chalet features an en-suite bathroom with a flush toilet as well as an open-air bucket shower. Guests can relax in the main dining and lounge areas under canvas and on the sunny deck. Tuck into al fresco meals on the banks of the Zambezi River.
