Considered one of the most challenging rapid runs in the world, the Zambezi River is a powerful force that boasts 19 grade-V whitewater in the shadow of Victoria Falls. A bonafide natural wonder with an auspicious reputation within the paddling community, only the brave live to tell the tale of rafting on the Zambezi. You will meet your guide at the activity base near Victoria Falls for this multi-day excursion on the Zambezi River. After an important briefing of the adventures lying ahead, you will receive a safety briefing before embarking on your trip. You will hike down to the notorious Boiling Point to meet your full rafting team. After kitting up, your in-boat guide will get you acquainted with the paddle techniques and commands you’ll use before the actual rafting begins. Depending on the water levels, you will have the honor of swimming under sprays of the majestic Victoria Falls. Next comes the fun, as you hammer your way through notorious rapids with terrifying names like 'The Overland Truck-Eater' and the 'Gnashing Jaws of Death”. You will later be camping on the sandy beaches along the Zambezi River. This is an option to daze away from the everyday urban life, and you will be refreshed by the breeze from the flow of this spectacular river. Paddle one of the renowned rapids in the Zambezi River, not done in the traditional one day trip the towering waves of Ghost rider, the biggest commercially run-able roller coaster wave train rapid in the World. Over the course of 5 days, you will drift past fish eagle's nests, negotiate rapids, and encounter Bismark's Territory (home to a particularly large crocodile named Bismark) and Smugglers Camp. You will paddle through the biggest fisherman's village encountered during the 5 day trip, where the villagers will be happy to show you around, providing you with a glimpse of an astonishingly uncomplicated and simple lifestyle. You can enjoy the scenery of the Zambezi River as it changes character, with the basalt rocks giving way to grassy banks and the grunts of vocal hippopotamus carry across the water. Your raft will drift past islands in the river, which are havens for Egyptian Geese and basking crocodiles. After a couple of hours, you will rendezvous with your vehicles near the Matetsi River mouth. After packing up and deflating the rafts, you will head back to Victoria Falls by road, having lunch en-route. The journey back takes about 3 hours, and after taking some time out to unpack and freshen up, a group dinner and party is always a favorite option.
