Itinerary

DAY 01

You will be greeted at either Victoria Falls Airport, Livingstone Airport or Kasane Airport and then transferred by vehicle to Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge. Situated 80kms upstream of Victoria Falls close to the Botswana border and right on the Zambezi River. This 5000 acre private concession has 14kms of Zambezi River frontage and borders the Chobe Forest Reserve, which is renowned for its massive Elephant population. Imbabala is a small (max 18 guests) personalised lodge offering excellent game viewing, outstanding birdlife and good fishing. Overnight at Imbabala Safari Lodge on a full board basis including scheduled activities.

DAY 02

A game drive in the early morning is followed by brunch at the lodge overlooking the Zambezi. Midday is hot and a time to relax and do your own thing. Early afternoon and high tea is served followed by a river safari on the mighty Zambezi. Overnight at Imbabala on a full board basis including scheduled activities.

DAY 03

Final morning at Imbabala, you get another chance of an early morning game drive followed by brunch at the Lodge. You will then be collected by a Wild Horizons vehicle and taken on a game drive through the Zambezi National Park arriving at the riverside camp to start your Upper Zambezi Canoeing Safari. This is not a “luxury permanent lodge”! However the camp is fully backed up by a team of staff that set up camp in preparation for client’s arrival. The camp comprises of large walk in tents, equipped with camp beds, mattresses, sheets, pillows and duvets, camping water basin (which are filled with hot water each morning), a paraffin lantern, a bedside table and hand towels. There is also a portable toilet and hot shower in camp. The camp and dining table are set up under the stars on the riverbank with stunning views of the river.

After a thorough briefing by your qualified river guide, which will include river conditions and rapids, safety, general information and basics on how to canoe, you will be asked to sign an indemnity form. The canoes are actually inflatable kayaks and are very stable and easy to manoeuvre. The rest of the afternoon is spent canoeing the Zambezi River. Overnight camping on the banks of the Zambezi River (meals, limited drinks and camping equipment included).

DAY 04

A full English breakfast is served before an hour game drive upstream takes you to your put in point. Today you will canoe for approximately 18kms downstream. This is a stunning stretch of the river and you get to explore many quiet channels, watch animals on the river bank and do some fantastic bird watching. In most places the river current will carry you downstream you just need to steer. You will encounter some small grade one and two rapids which include the Sansimba rapids. The size of these rapids will depend on the time of year you travel (check with us). The inflatable kayaks cope with these small rapids very well, but you are likely to get a little bit wet. A picnic lunch is served on the mainland or an island dependant of the river level. Overnight camping on the banks of the Zambezi River (meals, limited drinks and camping equipment included).

DAY 05

After a delightful English breakfast you board your canoes once again and the day is spent canoeing another 18kms downstream towards the mighty Victoria Falls and the take out point. Today you will canoe the "Kandahar Rapids". The scenery, channels and the rapids are very different on the respective days. At the end of the canoe safari minerals & beers are served. You are then transferred the short distance back to the luxurious and very popular Elephant Camp by late afternoon. The Elephant Camp is approximately 10kms from the Victoria Falls entrance situated on its own private concession with spectacular views of the Zambezi gorges and rising spray of Victoria Falls. This afternoon you will enjoy an elephant interaction with the Wild Horizons elephants. Overnight at The Elephant Camp on a full board basis.

DAY 06
