2 travellers
If you're looking for adventure in Zimbabwe, experience the Zambezi River on a white-water rafting tour with pickup in Victoria Falls. With a guide, travel down one of the best one-day rafting rivers in the world, which plummets into a gorge at Victoria Falls, separating the placid river above the falls and the turbulent rapids below. The gorge is more than 328 feet (100 meter) deep at the falls and increases to more than 650 feet (200 meters) by the end of the full-day raft trip. Select a half-day or full-day trip when booking (dependent on availability). Water levels will determine whether you do low- or high-water rafting. 
  • Guided white-water rafting trip provides adventure while ensuring safety
  • Power down the Zambezi River and experience Zimbabwe’s wilderness
  • No need to rent equipment—-rafts, life jackets, and windbreakers included 
  • Barbecue lunch and open bar included
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 half-day or full-day trip.
Conclude your Zambezi white-water rafting tour with a barbecue lunch and open bar, followed by hotel drop-off.
