White Water Rafting

Victoria Falls is a mile long curtain of water that stretches across the glistening basalt rock, erupts into spray, and then thunders into the canyons below. The walls of basalt rock that capture the mighty Zambezi form one of the great river corridors of the world. This is the domain of the Nyaminyami, the River God of the Tonga people and is the ‘highway’ for our rafts. The rapids on the Zambezi River are officially defined as “Grade 5” by the British Canoe Union. Clients should be reasonably fit for this activity, as there is a steep walk into & out of the Batoka Gorge as well as the Rafting.
