Half Day Canoe - Zambezi

HI,

Can anyone recommend a good company to use for a half day canoe trip? I got in touch with Wild Horizons but they apparently no longer offer the 3 - 4 hour tours and I really don't want to pay $140 for a half day tour. Unfortunately we don't have time to do a full day tour.

We have two full days in Vic Falls and plan on spending one on the Chobe Day trip, and the other with a half day canoe and then the Lion Walk.

Thanks in advance

There are only two companies that do the canoe trips on the Zimbabwean side of Victoria Falls. These are Wild Horizons and Adventure Zone, the later will do a half day trip on special request but dependant on numbers in your group, so it's not guaranteed.

The half day trip finishes at around 1.30pm and costs $120 per person. The Full day which is not actually a full day as it finishes at around 2pm to 3pm costs $140 pp.

Pick up for the Lion walk is between 15.15 and 15.30 so you could do either of these canoe trips and still do the Lion walk in the afternoon, that is exactly why they have shortend the full day so that people can do another activity in the afternoon, albeit a bit tiring. Just make sure that whoever you do the canoe trip with is aware that you are doing the lion walk and then they will ensure you are there at the right time. Try and book both activities through the one operator.
