Overview
Rafting Victoria Falls lets you connect more with the Zambezi River than any other touring option. Class IV and V rapids and a 650-foot-deep (182- meter) gorge make for a thrilling ride, while your guide ensures your safety throughout—regardless of your experience level. An included lunch with an open bar and round-trip hotel transfer round out the tour.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with an early morning pickup from your Victoria Falls lodging. Enjoy a light breakfast before climbing into a Jeep for a drive to the Zambezi River.

Upon arrival, put on your gear and practice key safety maneuvers before hiking a steep trail to the put-in. Your group’s abilities and preferences determine the type of raft you take out to ensure a safe and fun trip, from a guide-controlled oar raft to a passenger-controlled paddle raft.

Work together with your group to paddle hard and navigate Class IV to V rapids over the course of your selected 3-hour or 7-hour trip.

Conclude your Zambezi white-water rafting tour with a barbecue lunch and open bar, followed by hotel drop-off.

We ate at the end, after the big climb up the gorge, 780 'stairs'. We had biscuits on the river supplied by the company.
