Full description
Your friendly driver or guide will collect you from your Victoria Falls hotel in the early morning. Enjoy a light breakfast before climbing into a jeep for a drive to the Zambezi River. Upon arrival, put on your gear and practice key safety maneuvers before hiking a steep trail to the put-in. Your group’s abilities and preferences determine the type of raft you take out, from a guide-controlled oar raft to a passenger-controlled paddle raft, this ensures a safe and fun trip for everyone.

Low water season, when the rapids are most intense, is typically between August and December, while high water season occurs between January and March and then again in June and July. You'll hammer your way through notorious rapids with terrifying names like The Overland Truck-eater and Gnashing Jaws of Death. Upon arrival at your endpoint, you'll hike with your guide to the top of the gorge and enjoy cold beers and a BBQ before getting dropped back to your hotel. Rafting the Zambezi is 4-hours of pure whitewater adrenaline not including pick-ups and drop-off times.
