Canoe safaris are popular throughout many African safari destinations and take you paddling through soke of the most pristine and beautiful areas of Africa. Some of the most notable, world famous canoe experiences are the mokoro safaris in Botswana’s Okavango Delta and along the renowned wilderness of the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe and Zambia, also through the waterways of Tanzania’s Ruaha National Park.

Professional, expert guides help you negotiate and navigate the African waterways, viewing the wildlife as it comes the water’s edge to quench their thirst.

Canoe safaris usually depart early in the morning or mid to late afternoon (usual safari game drive times) giving you the opportunity to glide and explore through waterways giving a unique wildlife viewing perspective.

For those that yearn for longer canoe safari adventures, there are a number of specialist safari operators who take you on a journey lasting anything from a couple of days to a full week exploring the hidden treasure of Africa’s glorious water systems, setting up fly-camps as you find suitable places to set up camp for the night with the sounds of the African wilderness lulling you in toa contented sleep after a full day of paddling.

Below are our top tips for spectacular destinations to enjoy a wonderful canoe safari in Africa…
