Imagine. The quiet waterways of Africa

Tales from the Bush

A water safari isn’t just about exploring Africa’s rivers, deltas and lakes. It’s about forging a connection with the untamed soul of the continent. It’s about being enveloped in the sights, sounds and sensations that have echoed through these waters for millennia. Whether you’re gliding through the mirrored waterways of the Zambezi and Chobe Rivers, canoeing in the shadow of ancient trees in Mana Pools, casting your line into the heart of the wild of Kariba, or letting the currents guide your mokoro through the Okavango and Khwai, you’re embarking on a journey that defies words. So close your eyes and take a dive deep into the heart of Africa’s aquatic wildlife wonderlands on a water safari unlike any other and make memories that will forever ripple through your soul.

Boat-Cruise

Imagine the gentle current carrying you along the Zambezi, your eyes drawn to the riverbanks where elephants linger and buffalos graze. Listen as the calls of birds echo through the air, harmonising with the rustling leaves and the distant roars of lions. With each passing moment you become a part of this intricate ecosystem, observing its rhythm and flow. Take a front-row seat as the Chobe River gives you a glimpse of one of the continent’s greatest spectacles – the majestic African sunset. Be amazed as the sky transforms into a canvas of fiery oranges and soft pinks, reflecting off the water’s surface as herds of elephants come to drink. Step into a world where the waters themselves are your guide. Experience the labyrinth passages of the Khwai River and the fanning mosaics of the Okavango Delta from the seat of a traditional mokoro, carved from the heart of a tree. Sit back and relax as your guide expertly navigates the waterways, steering you through a maze of aquatic grasses and serene lagoons. The only thing you’ll hear is the gentle splashing of water and the songs of birds overhead. Your companions along this part of the ride will be the wading elephants in the shallows and curious hippos peeking above the surface.

Mogotlho Mokoro

The serene waters of Mana Pools National Park will open up in front of your canoe while the canopies of ancient trees will form a protective embrace. As you paddle, you become a humble observer of creatures, big and small, that saunter to the water’s edge to quench their thirst. The break of a new day, with the sky painted in hues of pink and gold, is an open invitation to cast your line into the waters of the Zambezi. Be prepared for a racing heart as the bait starts dancing on the water’s surface and the thrill of reeling in a giant tigerfish.  Your dream water safari continues as you venture onto the shimmering expanse that is Lake Kariba. Here you won’t just catch fish, you will land stories that intertwine with the currents. As you wait for a tug on your line, the world slows down, and the water is everything.
