Canoeing Safaris Canoeists camp along the banks of the river at night. All trips are lead by experienced guides familiar with both the river and the behaviour of big game. Most companies use stable “Canadian” style canoes and reasonable degree of fitness is required.

Ruckomechi Camp - Canoeing down the mighty Zambezi is always rewarding!

Canoeing Safaris  Shorter canoe trips are undertaken in many other places including South Africa’s Kosi Bay and the Knysna Lagoon, Namibia’s Caprivi region and on Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika.

Canoeing Safaris  The “middle” Zambezi, downstream from the Kariba Dam wall to the Mozambique border runs through a huge expanse of wild bush, including - the Mana Pools and the Lower Zambezi National Parks. They provide wonderful game viewing opportunities and spectacular scenery with the steep slopes of the Zambezi Valley framing the horizon on both sides of the river.

Canoeing Safaris  The broad Zambezi River provides an excellent pathway for canoeing trips through remote game-rich wildlife areas shared by Zimbabwe and Zambia.

XONGHILE: THE PLACE OF BEAUTY  A couple of weeks ago found me bumping along a seemingly endless dirt road in an old Mitsubishi Colt; hungry and tired after a nearly fourteen hour drive from Johannesburg. We had just entered Mozambique through the Giriyondo Border Post and were desperate to reach our destination, Xonghile, before sunset… but the rough roads of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park had other plans... http://www.hartleys-safaris.co.za/news/xonghile-place-beauty/

A blast from the past! This morning I stumbled along some photos my friend had taken when we went shark diving at Protea Banks I decided that life is made up of moments, and it is up to us to fill those moments with epic experiences – experiences best made out of your comfort zone. And what better way to do that than to explore this beautiful world? Not too sure whether to blame adrenaline or nitrogen narcosis, but it is the moment I chose to follow my career in travel.

The photograph was taken while Andrew Petkun and his daughter Kirina were on safari in the Kruger National Park. They stayed at Rhino Post Safari Lodge and Plains Camp where they also enjoyed a Sleep Out under the majestic African sky. It was the beginning of a magical trip that included Cape Town, Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park – and a total of four countries. It was Kirina’s first time to Africa and we look forward to welcoming her back in the near future!

The rawness of emotion and the adrenaline rush I felt as I watched Mother Nature play her cards makes my trip to Kenya and the Great Migration the best bush experience of my life.  By Melissa Mercer

After waiting in anticipation for two hours finally, a brave zebra took the first leap of faith and the rest followed suit. Hundreds of wildebeest and zebra went single file as they bobbed up and down across the river only to tackle a steep rocky climb up the other side. By Melissa Mercer
