Safpar offer both a Full Day and a Half-Day Rafting experience as well as epic overnight and multi-day trips. We say NO to expensive memories! Safpar are the only company on the Zambezi to provide a FREE photo and video package of your day on the mighty Zambezi! Considered one of the best stretches of commercially run river in the world, Batoka Gorge provides one of the most intense sensory thrills imaginable. Its 25 white-water rapids and striking scenery deep within the sheer black cliffs afford the adrenaline junkie a wild roller-coaster ride along a route carved over millennia by the Great Zambezi.
