River God Adventures provides its guests with a unique, unforgettable, wildlife and fishing experience on the most wildlife-rich section of the Might Zambezi River.

Excursions are held along the Zambezi River between Chirundu and Kanyemba (via Mana Pools, Sapi and Chewore) on custom-made, self-contained vessels complete with all the amenities needed for this all-inclusive, 6 day floating safari.

The intimate family/group 8-sleeper boat (newly-designed in 2023) comes fully staffed with a professional guide, chef, skipper and deck hand allowing passengers to sit back and enjoy the pristine African beauty surrounding them.

Spacious sleeping pods are found on the top deck, providing comfort and safety to guests while the boat is moored for the evening.

Activities offered on River God include fishing, game viewing, photography, and birding - all whilst drifting silently downstream past a steadily changing landscape. A professional guide can also take guests on walking safaris on larger islands teeming with fauna and flora.

This is truly a once in a lifetime adventure that can’t be missed!

River God Adventures offer something completely new. A fully kitted out “house boat” that is able to navigate the river due to its shallow draught. Sleeping up to 8 guests comfortably, with a hot water shower and flush toilet on board, as well as a large galley churning out the kind of food that has made Zimbabwean chefs justly famous. Although we did not have time to do the full trip, the normal itinerary is a 5-night voyage from Chirundu near the Kariba wall down the river to Masau Camp, near where the river enters Cahora Bassa. From a fishing perspective, this means that one gets to fish both the wide slow sections of the river as well as the deeper faster flowing gorge area. The freedom to pull up onto an uninhabited stretch of beach for sundowners and dinner served al fresco under a gazebo on squeaky white sand, while taking in the sights sounds and smells of Africa is a special experience indeed and is certainly one of the reasons this operation is already running high occupancies and should be booked well in advance.

We have just got back from a brilliant trip on the Challenger and Discovery. Congratulations on setting up such a great boat, and crew. GUY, DEAN AND NORMAN were simply great. Everything was top drawer. The food, the layout of CHALLENGER etc is simply the best. The service, support and attention to detail we received from the team was excellent. The fans in the tents are just perfect to assist you sleep. We had so many highlights on the trip. The team went out of their way to innovate and plan exciting options for us. Lunching on the sand banks, game drive through Mana etc etc. Guy has incredible eyesight and found animals for us when clearly we would never have seen them. In particular 2 x lions in the gorge. Please can you extend our thanks to your team for an amazing trip.

Thank you for an incredible trip. I wanted you to know our sincere gratitude and appreciation for your entire team that safely, professionally and joyfully took us on our journey. Deano's passion for food made our meals not only delicious but creative and exciting, and he produced fabulous food quickly and energetically every time. Amazing what he turned out all week. Norman never failed on smiles and hard work. His kindness and sense of humour were infectious and the kids all loved fishing with him. York is an incredible guide – He calmly and confidently piloted us past several buffalo sightings, land bound hippo and through a small river crossing. His enthusiasm for his play ground is infectious and his work ethos golden. He loved every minute of fishing tirelessly with the kids and his energy levels are never ending. Nothing was any trouble for your team at any moment... no request, or question too large of small. Thank you. Siyabonga! Memories made and banked for life.

We loved every minute of the River God. What an amazing experience. We had lots of adventures and laughter and I can't tell you enough how much we enjoyed it all. The tents are so comfortable and the food was delicious. Guy was fantastic and looked after us all very well as did Bruce. We had a wonderful walk and felt very safe with Guy. It really was great.
