Whitewater Rafting


This full day white water rafting adventure on the Zambezi River is internationally acclaimed as being the wildest in the world. Whitewater rafting on the Zambezi River below the Victoria Falls has been classified by the British Canoe Union as Grade 5 – 'extremely difficult, long and violent rapids, steep gradients, big drops and pressure areas'. This is a high volume, pool-drop river with little exposed rock either in the rapids or in the pools below the rapids. On occasion Klipspringer, Rock Hyrax, Vervet monkeys and Baboon are spotted and the birdlife is spectacular; Black eagle, Augur buzzard, Black stork, Pied and Giant kingfisher, and Red Winged starling are some of the birds normally seen during the trips. Sightings of the very rare Taita falcon are not uncommon. There are crocodile in the river, but they are small due to the unsuitability of the area for their habitation.
