EVENING PRIOR TO DAY ONE
Your trip leader will pop into where you are staying and pass out your dry bags and equipment and give you a rundown of your trip, what to pack, and answer any last minute queries.
DAY 1: UNDER THE FALLS EXCURSION AND RAPIDS 1 – 25
A good day for an adventure! After for a quick breakfast, have your dry bag packed and we will lock all your valuables away before our safety briefing and equipment introduction starts. Then we are on our way!
After a walk down into the Batoka Gorge, our epic journey starts at the base of the Victoria Falls – we explore the basalt cliffs and pools underneath the Falls. This experience is guaranteed to be a highlight of the trip – visited by few people, the base of these magnificent Falls will undoubtedly one of the most dramatic spots you will encounter.
Now it is time for us to meet the Mighty Zambezi River. The 10 rapids we encounter for the morning will be fun, but challenging! Our experienced crew are there to see you through some of the most intense white-water on the planet, you will be tested by Class 3-5 Rapids with names such as Morning Glory, Stairway to Heaven, The Devils Toilet Bowl and the Mighty Muncher before our first portage of the day around the Class 6 Rapid 9 Commercial Suicide.
We then meet the Three Ugly Sisters closely followed by the Washing Machine, Terminator 1 and 2 and the world-famous Rapid 18 Oblivion. It is certainly the most photographed in the world and results in more flips than any other on the planet. It’s the ultimate rapid in many ways. Very runnable, with three waves, the third of which during the month of October when run in the middle will either flip most rafts or surf them, sometimes both.
Tonight we arrive at our campsite on a beautiful white, sandy beach – let’s relax, enjoy the spectacular view, celebrate an awesome day on the River and look up at the majestic African starlit sky. The Batoka Gorge is all ours tonight! Tomorrow we embark on our next leg of our Zambezi River rafting trip.
Accommodation: Zambezi Campsite at Rapid 25 on a Full-Board basis. (No premium brands are included)
DAY 2: RAFT TO MOEMBA FALLS
Let’s get ready for a final day of adventure to our last destination – the stunning Lower Moemba Falls. You will encounter some of the Zambezi’s best rapids today. Open Season, The Narrows, Chamamba Falls and Upper Moemba. As the gorge opens up we may get the chance to glimpse at some wildlife, such as crocodiles and klipspringers plus a vast array of birdlife. When we reach Moemba Falls, take time to explore this remote area and then we muster up enough energy for the 750ft hike out of the gorge. It is then time to rest, sit back and enjoy a true ‘Grade 5’ road which slowly winds its way back to Livingstone. Transfer back to your Livingstone accommodation. Look forward to some well-earned Rest & Relaxation!
