The Victoria Falls area of Zimbabwe and Zambia are world renown for their action and adventure, no it has absolutely nothing to do with tossing yourself off of the Falls – actually that’s not true, you can go bungie jumping, fly in a prop plain, helicopter, skydive, the worlds the limited and only your imagination. For our bang for the buck though, white water rafting on the Zambezi is a must – there’s something about following in the steps of the great African explorers that just gets the adrenaline pumping a bit more.
The rapids get up to grade 5, which is going to leave anyone in your party happy, or maybe a little scared. Trips can be planned from a day on the river to almost a week. Needless to say we’d say at least one day. You can launch off from either the Zimbabwe side, or the Zambia side, both have excellent accommodations in their respective towns. You can find a number of top notch outfitters with good track records below.
