Full description
After being picked up from your hotel or lodge in an air-conditioned vehicle, drive for about 30 minutes to the Victoria Falls entrance where the tour will start. Receive a comprehensive safety talk given by your guide before you hike down to the Zambezi River.

The hike will last about 10-15 minutes depending on your fitness level. Find your raft in the river, prepared by the raft crew. Then start practicing the techniques with the assistance of your guide.

Tackle the first rapid of your day called the Boiling Pot. Paddle for the first 10 rapids, covering a throng of class 5 rapids that include the Stairway to Heaven, Gulliver's Travels, and Washing Machine. When you reach rapid number 10, stop for a snack break and a short rest. Tackle the remaining section of the river with rapids like Terminator, Mother All, and Oblivion. A the end of the adrenaline-filled trip, hike back through the Batoka Gorge.

When you reach the top, find a delicious lunch with refreshments waiting for you. Drive back to Livingstone, where you will be dropped off at your accommodation. Receive videos and photos of your trip the next day online.
