Full description
Take your family rafting down the Zambezi and spend a day in an incredible river with your kids. Paddle a distance of between 16-23 km, depending on the water levels, and enjoy a barbecue lunch on top of the Batoka Gorge.

Paddle through a series of Class 1-4 rapids with your experienced guides, steering you through the rapids of the Zambezi, a premiere river for whitewater rafting. Feel the rush of this adrenaline-pumping activity and marvel at the stark, sheer beauty and tranquility of the amazing Batoka Gorge.

This family trip takes place on a Stern Mount Raft with a frame and two large wooden oars to give your guide full control of the raft. Guests have the option to paddle through some rapids or just to enjoy holding on to the rope. There are special handle straps for kids, made in the U.S., that allow them to sit in the middle and hold on, but they can try paddling small rapids. Most rapids on this river are run on 2-3 different options. Clients may select their preferred option, but the guide's decision is final, especially if there are little kids onboard.
