INDEMNITY FORM: All participants are expected to sign an indemnity form upon arrival in Mana Pools (Odyssey Safaris) or at their briefing (Explorer Safaris). Failure to do so will result in cancellation of the safari


Day 1 (18 KM)
Natureways Safaris will collect you on the morning of your safari at 7:30am, in good time for a check-in at Natureways office, handing in extra luggage and valuables.

Please do not take your passport on the river.

There will be a short briefing to summarise what the safari entails and questions may be asked. Guests will be required to sign an indemnity form before leaving on the safari. After the briefing, a visit to the shops will be made, purchasing any extra drinks wanted for the trip before setting off for the river. Please note that credit cards are not a recommended payment option in Zimbabwe.

After arriving at the start point, luggage will be portered into the gorge and your group will walk the 1.5kms down to the river - quite a long, steep descent. All canoes and camping equipment will have already been carried into the gorge and packed. A safety talk and demonstration on how to paddle a canoe will be given after which you will be launched, then paddling until a stop is made for lunch. Lunch is picnic-style affair after which there will be time for a siesta to avoid the worst heat of the day at which time canoeing recommences. At approximately 5pm you will arrive and set up camp on an island named Crocodile Rocks. There will be time to have a bucket bath, relax and eat dinner after a brief safety talk on camping.

Day 2 (27 KM)

You will be woken at sunrise for tea, coffee and biscuits before canoeing a couple of hours and then stopping for a leisurely breakfast. After breakfast you will set off once again, enjoying the incredible scenery of the Zambezi Valley. A lunch stop will be made at the first suitable spot – with time, once again, for a siesta. In the early evening, the second campsite at Twin Logs Island, will be reached.

Day 3 (20 KM)

Up at sunrise for tea, coffee, biscuits and breakfast before going on the river. Between 10:30 and 11:00am the pick-up point at Chirundu will be reached. Here the equipment will be loaded for the return trip to Kariba or Kariba airport. Arrival back in Kariba is estimated to be 3pm. As you depart with your memories, we know that this experience will have enriched your life and touched your soul!
