Zambezi White Water Rafting
Zambezi 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 gorge is over 100 metres deep at the Falls and increases to over 200 metres by the end of a full day raft trip. Despite this rugged terrain, the gorges below the falls are thick with vegetation and incredibly spectacular.
Arguably the Zambezi White Water Rafting, is the wildest white water in the world. Rafting on the Zambezi River is an adrenaline rush not to be missed. 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 steep walk into & out of the Batoka Gorge as well as the white water rafting activity itself. All guests will be collected from their respective hotels and taken to The Lookout Café for their briefing.
