The additional activities on this safari offer a wider variety of game viewing options and a chance to meet and interact with the local community. This may include a visit to a local orphanage / school / village as well as game drives and walks.
These canoeing safaris are self-contained in that all equipment / supplies are carried in the canoes for the duration of the canoeing trip. Guides prepare meals while the guests participate in erecting their tents, sorting out their bedding and helping with general loading and off-loading of their canoes.
The first two nights are spent wild camping on islands with the last two night being spent in an pre-established fly camp on the banks of the river with walk in tents, beds, and shared ablution amenities.
During the hot summer months, early morning departures are encouraged to make the most of the cooler time and also to cover a reasonable distance before the wind may pick up. Deep shade is sought in the hottest part of the day for lunch breaks and rest.
Canoeing continues to overnight stops as it becomes cooler again in the late afternoons.
