Review of: Raft the Zambezi
I have now rafted the Zambezi with SafPar twice - once in 2013, once in 2022. Both experiences were incredible. In 2013 I did a full day (dry season) and in 2022 I did a half day (rain season). The staff was incredible both times. I couldn't recommend this more. Great staff, amazing river, great equipment, felt very safe (even when we flipped over!), met good people, got amazing professional photographs, and just really enjoyed myself. Such a cool way to experience this beautiful river and the falls.

Review of: Raft the Zambezi
These guys were excellent. They took care of us, we were all safe and I should have done a full day. WHEN I go back, I'm using Safpar again!

Review of: Raft the Zambezi
We had a great time on the Zambezi River. Emmanuel was our wonderful captain, manouvering the raft safely through the rapids 14 - 25. Still, we capsized at rapid no. 19, not unexpectedly but still a bit frightening for the first time. Rescue was easy with the help of the canoes and our companion raft. When we capsized again at rapid no. 24 it was already routine and definitely became part of the fun. But don't take anything on board, you will loose it... The team is professional and at no point did we feel unsafe. and Emmanuel took extremely good care of us. Overall it was an amazing exerience. The entire day was very well organized by the SAFDAR team. The outcome was a thrilling video for all of us to show and enjoy back home. The photo's and videos are also very professional. Best regards Harald

Review of: Raft the Zambezi
What a great experience and a must do for everyone visiting Livingstone. To the whole team that took myself and my wife out on the river to complete all the rapids from 1 to 21, thank you. You guys were amazing, namely Choongo(captain of the boat) never flipped us once! Dexter our rowing partner and saved us from flipping backwards when jumping to the front of the boat to weigh it down. Davis the man in the kayak to save us in case we fell into the water and last but not least Julius the photographer, thank you for the amazing video and photos. Thank you for an unforgettable experience and we could not have asked for a better team with lots of laughter. I highly recommend Safpar for an ultimate experience on the river. THANK YOU!!
