Nothing quite prepares you for the thrill, when your driver suddenly goes full throttle and you go shooting up the first rapid, heading for the base of the magnificent Falls. In between spurts of wind-swept madness, you will be given a brief talk on the geological formation of the gorge and Falls and the history of the famous Victoria Falls Bridge.

• All trips are subject to water levels and are governed by weather   conditions.



The jet boat was invented in New Zealand, born from the need to be able to navigate shallow rivers for high country farmers and the like and has evolved into one of the greatest thrill rides on water.

Unlike a conventional outboard motor, the jet boat uses an internal impeller to provide propulsion.


Water is drawn in through an inlet in the bottom of the boat and driven out through a nozzle at the rear with great force.


Turning is accomplished by moving the nozzle laterally; braking and reverse are achieved by using a deflector similar to the reverse thrust bucket on a jet aircraft.


With their shallow draft and incredible power and agility, jet boats can tackle almost any river in any conditions, ranging from wide, shallow rivers to the frighteningly narrow confines of gorges. They can travel up to speeds of 80km/hr in water as shallow as 10cm in depth. Expect your driver to perform the “Hamilton Turn” – a high speed 360-degree turn, guaranteed to get the heart rates racing.


Typically, the drivers will take you up river as fast as conditions allow, steering the boat as close to the riverbanks, rocks and cliffs as they can, giving you a sensation of speed and danger few other activities provide.
