I would recommend Safpar Rafting Company to anyone. Our guide was very professional and kept all 8 of us safe on the journey down the mighty Zambezi!

I have done a lot of rafting in the past and the level of excitement and feeling of safety was better than anywhere. Melvin was the main man in our raft. He and his outriders did a great job. Highly recommended.
