Instead of immediately embarking on that arduous climb at the end of an amazing day of rafting adventure from rapids #1 to #21, seize the opportunity to camp overnight in the depths of the gorge on one of the pristine riverside beaches used exclusively for Shearwater clients. Enjoy complete peace and serenity as the light fades and the starry African blanket is revealed. Raft again next day.

Cruise alongside elephants, zebras, giraffes, buffalos, hippos and baboons. If you're lucky you'll get to see all of the big 5! You also get a delicious lunch served at a qualty local hotel. A day I'll never forget and a sight for sore city eyes!

We booked a day trip to the Zimbabwean side of the Victoria Falls from our hotel in Livingstone. We booked via Jollyboys Backpackers in Livingstone who were great and very helpful. The providers, Shearwater, were however, somewhat disappointing. The activities offered were amazing, from the helicopter ride over the falls to the tour of the Falls, but from a company... More

We did several day tours with Shearwater and they took great care of us!! They worked well with our tour guide from Extreme Scene to plan a jam packed trip to Victoria Falls. I will say that the worst part is that they don't give a ton of information about what you're about to get into; but I think it's... More

When we booked the Boiling Pot hike, we tried to get as much information as possible, especially about how hard it would be. However, the man at the Shearwater office was not able to explain much. And I was glad he didn't, otherwise I wouldn't have done it. We were picked up punctually and drove behind the entrance of the... More

We recently had a Victoria Falls day tour with Robert through Shearwater and had a great time. He was very knowledgeable about the Falls and very accommodating in answering questions, giving us time to take in the scenery and taking numerous pictures of us. He also knew the best places to take pictures which I also appreciated.

J (Robert) was an awesome guide who provided historical and current information about the Falls. He allowed ample time for photos but his best suggestion was to just stand back and absorb the Falls in their beauty. Thanks, J, for great conversation and a wonderful tour!

I was recently in the Victoria Falls area and was told by friends to book a tour with Robert from Shearwater Rafting. Well, I can confidently say that was a great recommendation. Robert (goes by Jay) arranged all the details for me, including a pickup from my hotel in Zambia, and had me brought through to the Zimbabwe side where... More

I was not sure about doing an elephant ride as I had fears about animal exploitation etc. The tour was genuine, lovely, just the right amount of time and the staff are so obviously caring about their elephants. There is the usual "extras" you can opt to buy but no big touristy sales pressure, which makes for a pleasant experience.... More
