Description

The goal of this rafting expedition is descent of one of the wildest rivers in the world - Zambezi. In six days you will paddle the longest possible section of this African beauty. The adventure begins at the bottom of Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Naural Wonders Of The World. Huge volume of water create numerous rapids in up to 300 meters deep basalt gorge. Despite the size and gradient of the river, warm water and drop-pool character makes Zambezi reasonably safe and friendly.

Beyond the rapids where the regular one-day rafting finishes a new dimension opens. Be one of few people who enter the real world of expedition rafting. You'll escape the hustle and get a chance to fully enjoy the nature. Camping on white sandy beaches with millions of stars above will be sweet reward after demanding paddling and portaging some unrunable rapids.

Once we finish all 130 unforgettable kilometres on the river, off-roads or helicopter (optional) will bring us back to Victoria Falls to celebrate, relax and enjoy some non-rafting adventures. Beeing already in area is the best opportunity to head for safari to Hwange or Chobe National Park (optional additional program). It makes your trip five days longer and the memories are priceless.
