Off to Zambia Africa

Flying to Lusaka Zambia and traveling around Zambezi, various national parks, etc January 19 - February 30. Would love to bring my new alpacka mule but looking for info as to what I might be able to do with it. I dream of floating past African wildlife down remote rivers but I’m sure it’s not that easy with permits,hippos, locals that might want to hassle me, etc. can anyone out there help me figure this out. Got some high adventure hopes. Peter V
