A small-group canoe expedition, Ruwesi Canoe Trail encounters a variety of wildlife on the mighty Zambezi, one of the greatest rivers in Africa.
The journey needs a minimum of two to the start the journey with a maximum number of seven travelers to keep it intimate. This memorable, three-night mobile canoeing and walking safari traverses Mana Pools National Park, through the heart of Mana Pools and along forty miles of shoreline. After canoeing past countless hippos each day, adventurers will camp each night along the banks of the mighty Zambezi River. Encounters with animals, whether on canoe or on foot, are up close and thrilling with game drives and nature walks available through Mana Pools National Park.
The trail is best attempted by reasonably fit guests and is led by a professional armed guide. Support vehicles and four additional staff assist guests and set up camp each day before guests arrive by canoe. Accommodations are typical of a mobile camp and include high quality candlelight dining along with comfortable Meru-style framed tents with cots, mattresses, sheets, blankets, a bucket shower, and a flush toilet. No previous canoeing experience is necessary and there is a maximum of two people per canoe with paddles available to help upon request. Since the departures are private, there are no set days for the adventure.
