Jet Boat – Zambezi River
Pumping vast amounts of power from huge jet engines, these powerboats shoot down the rapids below the Victoria Falls at 100 km an hour. A thrilling half hour spent flying over the water and ‘buzzing’ rock faces between rapids 23 and 27. The Jet Boat Extreme tour starts at the Day Activity Centre (Livingstone) and you are transferred by specially adapted Land-Rover vehicles (approximately 1 hour) to your entry point at the gorge. You meander down the gorge approximately 880 feet in a scenic cable car lift, where you meet your jet boat pilot for a briefing. Water and soft drinks are available. One of the most thrilling 30 minutes of your life is about to begin. After the ride, you no longer have to walk the 880 feet out of the gorge as you now board the cable car for the 8 minute ride out. Ice-cold beer and soft drinks await you at the top after which you are transferred back to the Day Activity Centre (Livingstone).
Departure Times: The two departure times are 07h30 in the morning with guests returning to their accommodation by 12h00 & 12h30 in the afternoon with guests returning to their accommodation by 16h00.
Duration: The jetboat ride itself lasts an intense 30 minutes, before the scenic cable car trip back out of the spectacular gorge at the end. Includes drinks after the boat trip and at the top of the gorge after the cable car ride out. The trip in total lasts about four hours, and includes quick village tour of Mukuni village along the way and transfer drop off back to your pick-up point in Livingstone.
