Andy the great outdoorsman from the Veldt, goes wild camping and takes a canoe safari in Zambia...
This week’s patter comes live and direct from Chirundu, in Zambia
What a great feeling to be out of the river – I’m going to be canoeing on the lower stretches of the Zambezi this week with a bunch of fun guys on the 5-day Canoe the Zambezi adventure. While I’ve never been near a canoe before I’m told it’s a doddle and our first outing will be at a slow pace – to be followed by a bit of wild camping on an island in the middle of the river.
Day two should be awesome, as we’ll have a whole day’s canoe safari. Bet you didn’t know that this stretch of water is said to contain the highest recorded numbers of game and bird life on the entire Zambezi River.
Top tip: leave yourself with a few extra days as you can go all out on the adrenaline activities in Livingstone - the perfect end to an amazing safari.
