Regional Event: Zambezi Challenge and Lion Conservation Project

Discover Zambia by water! Join fellow cat lovers on this once-in-a-lifetime canoeing adventure on the mighty Zambezi River.

Eleven days in total, you'll spend three full days of your challenge winding your way downstream in a canoe before camping on the river bank for a truly wild African experience.

You will then learn about lion conservation on a one-day visit to a project in Livingstone and join two safari drives to try to spot lions in the wild, along with other amazing wildlife!
