Safari Par Excellence started running Canoeing Safaris in the Lower Zambezi National Park in 1991. Now Safari Par Excellence operates Canoe Safaris from Livingstone on the Upper Zambezi, this is the section of the Zambezi River up stream of the Victoria Falls. This section of the Zambezi River offers great wildlife viewing with the excitement of running small Grade 2 rapids.

If paddling your own canoe is too much of a challenge, a less challenging option is a Raft Float Safari. In place of canoes we use rafts with a frame and oars for the guide. Paddles are provided for the clients but if you woud sooner realx and let the guide do all he work no problem. When rafting on the upper Zambezi river, Safpar uses state of the art eight person inflatable rafts, these craft are incredibly stable when running small rapids yet are easy to manouver and paddle.

The Zambezi river above the Victoria Falls changes its nature continuously, from wide open expanses of water to narrow tree lined channels meandering between the myriad of rock and sand islands. Game is abundant, species that may be encountered include Hippo, Crocodile, Elephant, Waterbuck, the elusive Cape Clawless Otter and hundreds of bird species.

While on the river safety is our major concern, a full safety briefing is given before the safari commences, paddle training is given on dry land and then perfected on the river. The guide is always accompanied by a trainee/paddler, a comprehensive first aid kit and communications equipment is always carried.

Based out of The Victoria Falls Waterfront, Safpar operate half day safaris departing and returning to Livingstone. Upper River Raft Float Safaris are ideal for larger groups, up to a maximum of 80.
