    DAY ONE (18 KM) Natureways Safaris will collect you on the morning of your safari at 0730hrs, in good time for a check-in at Natureways office, handing in extra luggage and valuables. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE YOUR PASSPORT ON THE RIVER. There will be a short briefing to summarise what the safari entails and questions may be asked. Guests will be required to sign an indemnity form before leaving on the safari. After the briefing, a visit to the shops will be made, purchasing any extra drinks wanted for the trip before setting off for the river. Please note that credit cards are not a recommended payment option in Zimbabwe. After arriving at the start point, luggage will be portered into the gorge and your group will walk the 1.5kms down to the river - quite a long, steep descent. All canoes and camping equipment will have already been carried into the gorge and packed. A safety talk and demonstration on how to paddle a canoe will be given after which you will be launched, then paddling until a stop is made for lunch. After a picnic-style lunch, there will be time for a siesta to avoid the heat of the day after which, paddling recommences. At approximately 1700hrs you will arrive and set up camp on an island named Crocodile Rocks. There will be time to have a bucket bath, relax and have dinner after a brief safety talk on camping.
