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.

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.

Hartley’s Safari’s roots are in Africa and we have a deep commitment to the people of this vast continent and to the conservation of its wildlife and wild places. Sustainable eco-tourism plays a vital role in supporting conservation programmes in many parts of the continent and also in helping rural communities live better lives through the creation of jobs and the establishment of various self-help and education programmes run by responsible safari operators.

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.

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!

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

Kenya was everything I could’ve imagined it to be and more! The iconic grassy expanses of land and rolling hills of the Masai Mara painted the perfect backdrop and the huge concentration of wildlife made my safari in Kenya the best safari of my life! Never have I seen so many predators, all with bulging bellies. By Melissa Mercer
