5 day Zambezi Trip
Amyerin23
We are avid rafters so this trip had been on our bucket list. Pro: it is an experience of a lifetime. Day 1 is by far the most rapids and exciting. Liberty, our safety kayaker, was absolutely fantastic. Cons: We had one boat for all the gear, 4 paying guests, 4 crew and 1 crew members guest. It was overly crowded and the cramped space severely took away from the experience. If you are thinking of booking this trip, before you book, make sure there is a gear boat. I can not stress how little room we had for long days on the river. It was very uncomfortable. The crew had hard work with the portages and the meals (food was good)…I am grateful to them.
Just do it

I highly recommend rafting with Shockwave. The Zambezi is truly mighty. The rappids are huge. The guides are amazingly knowledgeable about the river, and super friendly.
5 day adventure on the Zambezi

I and my x2 teenage girls undertook the 5 day rafting tour in Aug 23. All communication with Shockwave prior to the trip was good, with a rapid response to emails, and they were willing to change the departure date of the trip (requested well in advance!) to fit our schedule. There were 8 on our trip so 2 after, one for pax and one for kit. The headline rapids on Day 1 were of course awesome, but there were actually rapids all the way through to the end of day 4 (albeit the last Grade 5 was on Day 3, and there were longer stretches of calm water between the rapids as the trip progressed). The scenery was amazing, we were within the Gorge for the first 4 days with only the occasional fisherman's thatched hut as evidence of human habitation. Lunches and overnight camps were on white sandy beaches on either side of the river, with evening dinner cooked over a camp fire. Food was plentiful, varied and tasty, including traditional nshima on the last night. There were swim sites at the camping spots on the first 3 nights; crocs appeared by day 4 and hippos by 5 which prevented swimming thereafter! Overall, a fantastic "get away from it all" trip with periods of adrenaline but plenty of chilled paddling along the calmer stretches, great crew, and we enjoyed it immensely - thank you.
AMAZING 5 DAYS ON THE MIGHTY ZAMBEZI RIVER!

Wow just spent an awesome 5 multi day rafting trip wth Shockwave Adventures out of Victoria Falls! The river was amazing from the adrenaline of the first few days navigating the huge rapids with our outstanding leader OG (Dougie) to the calmer areas taking in the beautiful scenery and amazing animals like hippos/ smaller crocs and lots of bird life. Silent our safety boater was on point looking out for us and has an unforgettable and huge smile! Everything ran very smoothly - good equipment and efficient logistics. Huge thanks to the porters who had the hardest job of all carrying all the gear up and down the gorge! Philani and the Shockwave office ladies can also assist with many other requirements with activities, transport and accommodation. Thank you!
Once in a life time trip

I was so happy with this multiday trip with Shockwave. I had some questions to start with and the ladies at the front counter was more then happy to help and every staff member was so welcoming. It was one of the best trips I have ever done and I would recommend this company to anyone that is looking for a multiday trip or even just a single day. The safety aspect of the staff was great and they made sure to always look after every person on our raft no matter what ever skill they had. I WILL BE BACK!!!!!
