Whitewater Rafting | Yearly Zambezi Challenge

 


Zambezi white water rafting, Rafting takes place below Victoria Falls towering column of spray in Batoka Gorge.


White Water Rafting is suitable for most clients.Minimum age to partake in this activity is 15 years.


The ability to swim is not essential, however non-swimmers should inform the trip leader at the briefing.





Briefing

- A detailed safety briefing will be conducted before each trip.

- The oarsman for the trip explains what to do if the raft flips, how to help each other out of the water and what   conditions to expect. He always gives the worst-case scenario so that people know what to expect from the trip   and, therefore, have the choice to forego their trip after the safety talk.

- Once in the raft, you are instructed by your oarsman as to how to negotiate the rapids and some practice is   done before you set off.

- You are also briefed before each rapid on how the raft is expected to react.

The day trip is seasonal and dependent on rainfall and water levels.


- Low water is from approximately mid July to mid January.

- High water is from approx February - mid July, when the river is   in flood.

- Occasionally rafting is stopped for a few weeks in April/May if   the water levels get too high and rafting becomes unsafe

- There is a walk of about 70 metres vertical, into and out of the   gorge.

- The pathway descends into the gorge right next to the Victoria Falls Bridge. Once at the bottom clients walk   upstream to above rapid # 1 from where the rafts are launched. This gives you fantastic views of Victoria Falls   before white water rafting.

- You can only get into the boiling pot /rapid # 1 during low water.

- You portage around rapid No 9 which is classified Grade 6 - unrunable.
