4 Nights / 5 Days
Canoeing Safaris is perfect for the adventurous traveller, allowing close encounters with wildlife on some of the greatest rivers and tributaries in Africa. These thrilling experiences traverses some of the most pristine wilderness areas, canoeing in comfortable, stable Canadian canoes, passing spectacular wildlife on the way! Each night is spent camping on the banks of the river or floodplains. Encounters with animals and birds, whether on canoe or on foot, are up close and awe-inspiring. The Canoeing Safaris, for reasonably fit guests, is led by experienced guides and assisted by support vehicles and staff.
Weaving through the landscape of Botswana’s northern sector is not only the famous Okavango River, but also an equally vital but lesser known lifeline, called the Selinda Spillway. Banished to obscurity by decades of dry, the Spillway came back to life during the high rains of 2009. Since then, its beauty has been renewed, enabling adventurers the rare opportunity of canoeing its waters. The Selinda Canoe Trail replicates the safari experiences of old as we navigate this magnificent region, fly camping along the way. We complete the 45-kilometre journey close to the convergence of the Linyanti and Kwando waterways. Since 2009, the Selinda Canoe Trail has been the consummate favorite among those seeking a first in pristine wilderness.
