The rapids on the Zambezi River are officially defined as “Grade 5” by the British Canoe Union (Grade 6 being commercially un-runnable). You should be reasonably fit for this activity, as there is a fairly steep walk into & out of the Batoka Gorge as well as the white water rafting activity itself.
Tea, coffee & biscuits are served in the morning at check-in, after which you are taken to the Gorge for the safety briefing before the days’ activity commences. Depending on the activity booked, a light lunch is either served in the gorge between rapids (Full Day), or at the top of the gorge (Half Day).
Available daily for either full or half day trips.
