Zambezi River canoe trip

Today we flew from Livingstone to Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia with a population of 3 million and are overnighted at a 1 1/2 star rest camp in a small A-frame hut with 25-year-old mattresses on the beds and 1/2 inch thick pillows. This might just be comfort as tomorrow we head off on a 3 night, 4 day canoe trip down the lower Zambezi River into the flood plains of the Mana Pools region in Mana Pools National Park. We’ll be camping on 3 different islands over 3 nights and there are no toilets so this is true “dig and cover” camping. Below is a map of Zambia and second map showing the area we will cover on the river, a not to big distance of approximately 75 km.

  1. Grant and Joyce,
    What a journey! Great photos and colorful stories. I hope you are in a less strenuous phase for a while. The concert that didn’t happen was almost identical to an experience we had in Botswana a year and a half ago. You are a long way from Plitvice and Dubrovnik where our paths crossed. Thank you for the wonderful blog and best wishes as you proceed.

    1. Thank you Herman and Janette. In Malawi now after some great safaris in South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. Lots more photos and commentary to come. Just waiting to get some good, fast and reliable wifi. Take care. Grant & Joyce
