White water rafting - Swimming Under The Spray Of The Victoria Falls & heading down on big rapis of the Zambezi River

Guests should be in Victoria Falls Village at least a day before the first day of the raft trip for the pre-departure briefing. This will give you a chance to meet your raft guides, discuss the adventure that lies ahead of you, ask any last minute questions and also get things like dry bags and sleeping bags. Day 1 Rafting Guests should breakfast at their hotel prior to pick up at 9a.m where they will be driven to our office for the check in.The first part of any rafting experience is very much a learning exercise followed by Swimming Under The Spray Of The Victoria Falls, however today there is no gradual build up; this 28 km stretch on day one is by far the wildest section of river that will be covered on the 3-day trip including many class 5 rapids. Some of the rapids on day one include Morning Glory, Stairway to Heaven, Land of The Giants, and The Devil's Toilet Bowl .We will reach our beach campsite at rapid#21 at about 4pm.

White water rafting - another long day on the Zambezi River enjoying some big rapids & portaging around Moemba Falls

We rise as the sun illuminates the towering walls above, to the smell of bacon and eggs on the fire. Then, with all the equipment once more stowed securely for the voyage down stream, and a long day ahead of us , we cast off into a world of exhilarating action and scenes of remarkable beauty. Its a hard working evening with two portaging around Moemba Falls. We arrive at the Dam site around 4pm where we will have the second portage and camp right by the falls.

White water rafting- downstream the towering waves of Ghost rider, the biggest commercially runable roller coaster wave

We will have a relaxed morning, downstream the towering waves of Ghost rider, the biggest commercially run-able roller coaster wave train in the World. In the original exploratory trip on the Zambezi one of the rafters opted not to run the rapid and pushed his empty boat off into the current. The sight of the empty raft successfully running the rapid in the twilight (after two others had flipped) inspired him to name the rapid Ghost rider. After surviving the Ghost rider rapid it will be the time to open our cooler boxes full of beers and start drinking as we will be drifting down small rapids. We get to camp at about 16:00 after travelling about 20 kms.

White water rafting - drift past Fish Eagle's nests, negotiate rapids Wave Train, Jay Bay a popular surfing place)

There is no rush on this day and after breakfast, rigging the boats and a late departure from camp, we paddle past a set of small rapids before negotiating a more technical rapid named Asleep At The Wheel, and then drift into camp! After departing camp we drift past Fish Eagle's nests, negotiate rapids - Wave Train, Jay Bay, (similar to Jeffrey's Bay in South Africa - a popular surfing place), Bismark's Territory, (home to a particularly large crocodile named Bismark!) and Smugglers Camp. This is the biggest fisherman's village encountered during the 6 day trip and the villagers are happy to show us around, giving us a glimpse at an astonishingly uncomplicated and simple lifestyle, totally free from the modern urban world we left behind some days ago.

White water rafting- Our rafts drift past islands in the river, havens for Egyptian Geese and basking crocs & hippos

The river really changes character. Basalt rocks give way to grassy banks and the grunts of vocal hippopotamus carry across the water. Our rafts drift past islands in the river, havens for Egyptian Geese and basking crocodiles. After a couple of hours, we rendezvous with our vehicles near the Matetsi River mouth.

Bring your friends rafting! BEST TRIP EVER
155winiw
BEST RAFTING TRIP EVER! I am an experienced rafter from the United States and this was my second time on the Zambezi with Shockwave. They are a top notch company, very professional, and guarantee you will have the best adventure. The water is warm, the rapids are big and friendly, the food is great, and the scenery can’t be beat. Shockwaves guides are world class, you can not be in better hands. The ten day trip is the best option. All your transportation between rafting and safaris is included, which makes less work for you on holiday. The Safari lodges and guides are great. We saw Wild Dogs, a Lepord, and had elephants visit us while we were in the pool! Book your trip now, bring all your friends (I brought 22 people from the US with me in October!), and prepare for an amazing experience.
