White Water Rafting Re-Opens.
After a short closure this year, we are happy to announce the opening of white water rafting on Wednesday the 18th of May 2016. High Water Trips will run from Rapid No. 15 to Rapid No. 24.
Arguably the biggest, wildest, most exciting one day White Water Rafting experience on the planet – the mighty Zambezi River! Take on the Grade 5 rapids and pounding white water of the Batoka Gorge below Victoria Falls with the absolute finest river crew from Wild Horizons – Africa’s Greatest Adventures.
The wildest white water in the world, White Water Rafting on the Zambezi River is an adrenaline rush not to be missed.
Victoria Falls is a mile long curtain of water that stretches across the glistening basalt rock, erupts into spray, and then thunders into the canyons below. The walls of basalt rock that capture the mighty Zambezi form one of the great river corridors of the world. This is the domain of the Nyaminyami, the River God of the Tonga people and is the ‘highway’ for our rafts. The gorge is over 100 meters deep at the Falls and increases to over 200 meters by the end of a full day White Water Rafting trip. Despite this rugged terrain, the gorges below the Falls are thick with vegetation and incredibly spectacular.
Clients should be reasonably fit for this activity, as there is a steep walk into & out of the Batoka Gorge as well as the White Water Rafting activity itself.
All guests will be collected from their respective hotels and taken to The Lookout Café for their briefing. Please bring your vouchers to check in. Do not bring valuables with you. Please leave all valuables, jewelry and passports at your hotel for safekeeping. We provide a safekeeping facility at check-in, where valuables can be left at your own risk.
