We realise it hard be hard to fit in all those adventures you would like to on your holiday, so perhaps consider our luxury afternoon rafting trip on the Zambezi. We'll collect you from your hotel (with some exceptions), fly you over Victoria Falls and into the river where there will be a wonderful lunch waiting for you. Let your team of guides inspire you with confidence and run you through the afternoons array of world class rapids, including The Mother and Oblivion. On conclusion of your trip, you'll glide out of the gorge by gondola where you can sit and have an ice cold drink before we transport you back to town. So whether your morning includes an elephant ride, microlight flight or just a lie in, this trip is perfect for you.
Your Afternoon Whitewater Rafting
We'll collect you at 11.00 from your hotel (some hotel exceptions apply). You will then take a scenic helicopter flight over Victoria Falls and swoop into the gorge where you have a sumptuous lunch waiting for you. Here your world class guide team will give you all a comprehensive safety talk and paddle instructions in preparation for your trip down river. We take a safety kayak or safety cataraft on every trip for added security, but we expect you not to swim on your afternoon on the Zambezi River. We take the time to "experience" the gorge, it's wildlife and learn fascinating history about the area. Conquer rapids such as The Mother, Double Trouble and Oblivion before we reach rapid 25 and we'll transport you swiftly out of the Batoka Gorge by gondola. Enjoy chilled beers and wine with snacks at the top of the gorge. We'll drive you back to your hotel in time for dinner.
