What a fun adventure!!! We started the day getting detailed instructions then hit the rapids. Hippo was our guide who kept us having a great day. I'm not incredibly fit, but felt comfortable all day. ... except for the walk back up the ravine at the end of the day. I was not ready for that. The staff were amazing... More

An absolute must for the bucket list. Stunning experience on one of the great rivers of the world. Exhilaration journey of thrills and spills (literally) through many Rapids up to grade 5. As other people have said you need to be reasonably fit to not only enjoy the rafting but to climb out of the gorge at the end of... More

We did rafting in January. The actual rafting was good - not amazing but apparently we were in high water and the rapids are better in low water. Our guide was good and we had a nice BBQ lunch at the end. However I must warn anyone doing this that the walk to and from the river is horrendous. We... More

Picked up and dropped back to accommodation. Excellent orientation. The staff where friendly and really made sure we where safe the whole time.

We have done riverrafting in Turkey, Thailand and Sweitzerland. All very good places but Victoria Falls is with its 28 km long river and magnificant nature definitely one of the best places in the world if not the very best.

Definatelly one of the best raftings I have done. And one of the best activity I chose in my 5 week African trip. It was truly an adventure to go down the beautiful Zambeizi River and through all those crazy rapids, they ranked from 1.5 to 5 if I remember right. Some easy, some adventureous. The guide and all the... More

We booked the white water rafting at the Lookout Cafe near Victoria Falls park in Zimbabwe (likely the best price). The rafting was amazing with a guide that was super safe and made sure that we did not tip the boat on purpose. Lunch at the end was a braai and good enough. Suggestion: make sure that people are aware... More

From the moment that we booked our trip with Wild Horizons, we were met with care and attention including messages of welcome to the Victoria Falls.

Words fall short when it comes to an absolute jam-packed, adrenaline rush, fully immersed white river rafting experience. If this isn't on your bucket list, it should be now and if you ever doubt whether you should go for it or not - I hope this kills your doubt.
