Canoeing in January

Does anyone have any advice / experience about taking a Chirundu - Mana Pools trip in January?

We're getting conflicting advice from operators with some saying it's a bad idea due to weather / temperatures / mosquitos etc. We are more looking forward to the canoeing and some fishing than any game viewing as we have been to Etosha / Chobe etc before.

Hi there

I was a canoe guide for several years on the lower Zambezi river. January would definately be a time of year I would avoid. It is peak rainy season and can be very unpleasant. Fishing also not good then with muddy flood waters. If you only have one shot at canoeing the Zambezi, I would recommend choosing a different time of year.
