Canoeing down the Zambezi River will be a highlight of your time in Mana Pools. You are doing your own canoeing with the current in sturdy 18ft Canadian canoes. Paddle your way through the sand banks and islands, watching pods of hippo or elephants wallowing at midday to cool off. If you prefer, you can sit in the canoe with a paddler. As there is a Land Rover back-up vehicle, game drives are taken, along with walks to explore and appreciate the rich floodplain and river channels of Mana Pools National Park.
