Whitewater rafting on the Zambezi
The Zambezi in all its splendour is like no other river on earth. We start this spectacular rafting journey beneath the thunderous Victoria Falls and paddle out amongst the most breathtaking scenery, with neighbourly hippos lazing on the riverside along the way. Within these perfect surroundings we will encounter powerful and magnificent rapids that will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat! Nights will be spent relaxing, camping on gorgeous warm white sandy beaches with a drink in hand and the humming sounds of wildlife all around. And with a stunning flight through Batoka Gorge and over the gorgeous Victoria Falls to finish, this will be an experience that you will never forget!

Day 1
Arrive in Livingstone and be met by one of our guides, then transfer to hotel. Free time to explore or relax. An evening pre-trip briefing and an optional balloon flight over the falls is available – sipping champagne as you watch the sunset. Or if this is not to your liking, there is an optional ‘booze cruise’ on the upper river amidst a myriad of wildlife.
Not Included: Breakfast, lunch, dinner, Balloon Trip or the ‘Booze Cruise’

Day 2
After breakfast and safety briefing we start the trip beneath Victoria Falls and prepare for one of the most action packed and adrenalin fuelled rafting adventures in the world. The day is rounded off with a well deserved cold beer at camp watching another amazing African sunset and preparing for our 1st night under the stars.
Included: All meals

Day 3
After breakfast the rafts are loaded and the fun continues, running the biggest rapid of the trip, ‘Oblivion’. With G & T’s in hand and smiles all round, our evening meal is prepared and we settle in for a night with many tales to be told.
Included: All meals

Day 4
‘Morning Shower’ is the 1st rapid of the day, waking us from our warm sunny daze. The river begins to open out more, Fish Eagles fly overhead and more huge rapids follow. Sundowners are enjoyed as we take in the beauty of the ‘Lower Moemba’ at dusk.
Included: All meals

Day 5
We drift downstream, crashing through more rapids and stopping briefly to restock with supplies. After lunch and powering our way through the longest rapid on the river ‘Ghostrider’, we drift downstream enjoying the rest of the day soaking up the sun and spotting crocodiles on the river banks.
Included: All meals

Day 6
24 hours to rest and recuperate. Volleyball, sunbathing, cocktails and cold beers – whatever you fancy!
Included: All meals

Day 7
Paddling resumes and a relaxing floating lunch is in order as we drift down the river. Wildlife is in total abundance and we see our 1st signs of civilisation. Final evening camping on the river bank.
Included: All meals

Day 8
An early rise and we paddle down the confluence with the Matetsi River where we are met by our gear truck. Then we have a real finale to the trip – we are picked up by helicopter and flown right back up the river giving an amazing view of the previous 7 days’ excitement. A truly breathtaking end to any river trip. And it doesn’t end there - we are dropped at our luxury hotel, high on the banks of the river. Sitting on the balcony above the rapids enjoying sundowners is the perfect finish to any trip.
Included: Breakfast and lunch

Day 9
Time to cruise around town and do last minute retail therapy before boarding your flight back home.

Optional Extension
As an extension we also offer a 3 day Game Safari in Botswana. With the chance to get up-close and personal with elephants, lions and leopards, this is the perfect finale to your adventure and a real taste of Africa.
