Arguably the wildest white water in the world, rafting on the Zambezi River is an adrenaline rush not to be missed. Departs daily for Full or Half Day trips. The rapids on the Zambezi River are officially defined as “Grade 5” by the British Canoe Union (Grade 6 being commercially un-runnable). Clients should be reasonably fit for this activity, as there is a fairly steep walk into & out of the Batoka Gorge as well as the white water rafting activity itself. Tea, coffee & biscuits are served in the morning at check-in, after which clients are taken to the Gorge for their safety briefing before the days’ activity commences. Depending on the activity booked, a light lunch is either served in the gorge between rapids (Full Day), or at the top of the gorge (Half Day). Clients booked for a Full Day will continue on rafting in the afternoon and can expect to be returned to their hotels at 15:00hrs (high water) and 17:00hrs (low water). Due to the nature of this activity, clients should be warned to leave their valuables & personal effects safely locked up at their hotel.
Multi Day White Water Rafting
The spectacular Batoka Gorge is the highway for our Multi Day Rafting trips. After the wildest one-day run in the world, our experienced guides continue on down the Zambezi River offering 2½ Day through to 6 Day journeys. All equipment is taken on the rafts and camp is set on remote sandy beaches only accessible by raft. The river varies from long peaceful stretches to renowned and wild Grade 5 rapids such as “Ghostrider”, “Chimamba” and “Moemba Falls”.
