The area alongside the Zambezi River is home to many birds and animal species. You are guaranteed of an exciting experience as you canoe down the river.

The Zambezi River around the lower Zambezi National Park on the Zambian side and Mana Pools across the river in Zimbabwe is rich in animal and birdlife.

The area is abundant in Hippos. Sightings of animals like buffalo, zebra, impala, elephant, puku and kudu on the riverbank are not rare.
