  • $140
  • Per person
  • VALID: 01 January - 31 December 2024


Full day rafting (according to high/low water schedules)
Transfers are included to and from any Victoria Falls (Zambia) accommodation.

Tame the wildest white water and come rafting on the Zambezi River. This is an adrenaline rush not to be missed.

The rapids on the Zambezi River are officially defined as “Grade 5” by the British Canoe Union (Grade 6 rapids are not commercially run).
Guests should be reasonably fit for this activity as there is a steep walk into and out of the Batoka Gorge as well as the white water rafting activity itself.
The gorge is over 100 meters deep at the Falls and increases to over 200 meters by the end of a full day raft trip. Despite this rugged terrain, the gorges below the Falls are thick with vegetation and incredibly spectacular.

Duration: Approx. 6 hours

Low Water Rafting runs approx : 10th August – 25th December. Rapids: #1 to #19

NB!  You must be fit enough to walk into and out of the gorge which is very strenuous.
