US$ 10 – National Parks River Usage Fee paid direct to parks board in cash, is not included

This 15km stretch of the Upper Zambezi River is quite unlike the better-known section below Lake Kariba.The Upper Zambezi River is regarded as FREE FLOW as a dam does not control it and as such the water is subject to seasonal variation.Floods begin in December and normally peak in April / May. Therefore, throughout the season the route varies as new channels open with the rise in water level.

The Upper Zambezi has numerous heavily wooded islands, which are dissected by channels that may be several kilometres in length and vary in width from one to twenty metres.The vegetation predominately consists of ebonies, waterberries, palms and a tremendous variety of acacia and Albizia. The rapids are small and at their peak are only classed as grade two, which is the second easiest grade.

The Canoe Trail passes through the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, where clients have a good opportunity of viewing the endangered White Rhino, the only concentration on the Zambezi River.There are at least 50 common species of bird that can be seen from your craft.
