Canoes, Kayaks and Mokoro’s
Being on the water with only a paddle and small boat is a really authentic and enjoyable way to spend some time on safari. There are many different options with this like paddling amongst a seal colony in Namibia while the pups race and play with your boat, punt slowly and quietly through the lily pads and reeds of the Okavango Delta in a traditional wooden mokoro or canoe for a multi-day safari along the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe watching elephants swim in the river, herds of animals along the banks and hippos grunting as you pass by. Lots of options in many different areas that we can discuss with you.
