If an adrenaline-fuelled water experience is more your thing, go white water rafting on the Zambezi River! Let Mother Nature give you a proper roller coaster ride through the changing currents of the Zambezi River, and we guarantee an adrenaline kick, shrieks of joy (fear?!) and sore arms, but it’s fun and challenging – especially if you’ve just spent the last many days sitting still in a safari car.
The currents on the river vary in length. The smallest are about 100 metres and the longest around 2 km. The entire rafting section is a good 24 km, divided into different “stages”. The hardest stages are at the beginning of the route (4 and 5 on the rafting scale), and if you want to raft here, you will have to choose a morning excursion. The end of the stage is a little calmer, and you want to raft here, you should choose an afternoon excursion. If you want both, choose a full-day excursion.
White water rafting depends on the water level, and the river may be closed to rafting from January to June due to high water levels and strong currents.
You have must be aged 15+ to raft. Experience is not necessary, but we recommend that you can swim and are in average physical form. Remember to check that your travel insurance covers this kind of activity.
The tour goes ahead when there are at least 4 people
