Excellent Activity. Rigorous 3-4 hour raft along the Zambezi river covering 19 rapids from Grade 5-1. Fantastic tour guides. Fundis (our lifeguard) was fantastic. Great instruction throughout the raft and great customer service. Highly Recommend.More

No weight limit, guide will organise people in the raft to even out weight and peoples abilities. As mentioned the hike down and out of the gorge in rather demanding.
