One of the most popular adventure activities for tourists to Victoria Falls is whitewater rafting on the Zambezi River. The Zambezi River is a well-liked destination for rafters from all over the world due to its strong rapids and breathtaking scenery. The portion of the river below Victoria Falls, where the river is marked by lengthy and difficult rapids, is where whitewater rafting excursions are frequently conducted.
The Zambezi River’s rapids are categorized according to their level of difficulty, with the “Grade 5” category being the most severe and only recommended for expert rafters. The Zambezi River’s rapids are renowned for their large waves and turbulent currents, which make them a special experience.
Experienced guides usually supervise half-day to full-day rafting excursions on the Zambezi River. Each tour begins with a safety briefing and the provision of safety gear including helmets and life jackets. Although the tours are appropriate for persons of all ages and experience levels, some basic physical fitness and swimming proficiency are necessary.
It’s crucial to remember that the Zambezi River has a seasonal flow. During the rainy season, which normally lasts from December to May, the rapids are greater and more difficult, but during the dry season, the flow is lower and the rapids are softer.
