- Canoeing: You are expected to be fit, but no canoeing experience is necessary. Canoe trips are tailored to the experience and fitness levels of the group and generally you will not paddle in a steady current of about five kilometers an hour , and won’t be going through any rapids.
- Walking: Canoeing is usually combined with walking and exploring the Mana Pools wilderness areas, which are off the beaten track.
- Fishing is possible during the excusrsions on the river, either from the banks or off an island in the middle of the Zambezi river.
- Game drives along the flood plain in open 4 x 4 Land cruisers are one of the main highlights, taking you into the core of the wildlife scene that is abounding with a diversity of wildlife.
- Typical safari day: Everyday is tailored to your particular requests. An example of a day at Zambezi Life Styles is an early start in the morning, with coffee and some breakfast snacks before heading out onto the flood plains for an early morning game drive. If canoeing is on request for that day, we may do an early morning game drive up-stream from the camp, and we will canoe down-stream back to the camp for lunch. An afternoon siesta can be followed with a walk or game drive on the mainland providing up close experiences of Elephant, Buffalo, Eland, Zebra, Kudu and numerous other animals.
