Room to Paddle, Zambezi Expeditions

This family of adventurers was looking for small, personal safari camps where they could really get out of the vehicle and get into the environment. Water experiences were key so we’ve got canoeing in Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools, endless activities from a cozy safari camp on the banks of the mighty Zambezi, and one of our favorite camps in the heart of the Okavango Delta.

After a week of intensive wildlife viewing, they finish with a few unstructured days in Cape Town to explore the region from an apartment hotel right off vibrant Kloof Street.
