Had an amazing experience white water rafting down the Zambezi! Our guide Melvin was great at co-ordinating our steering on the boat and teaching us about batoka gorge. The cruise provided an open bar and free dinner whilst enjoying some great views of the Zambezi at sunset.

Dear montycuthbert, Thank you for rafting and cruising on the mighty Zambezi River with Malvin and our team. Our Raft/Cruise Combo all inclusive at USD 160, is a superb option for guests to explore the Zambezi River while in Livingstone at The Victoria Falls. We will pick you up from your place of accomodation at 0730, kit you out at our Rafting base and head out to the Middle Batoka Gorge to raft the Zambezi River. Our team of International Rafting Federation licensed white water gurus will take care of you on this incredible river. Our lunch is served back at our rafting base at The Victoria Falls Waterfront on the banks of the upper Zambezi. This is also where you will watch your complimentary media package and board our iconic cruise boats to indulge in our hosted free flowing bar, watch an incredible sunset, eat a traditional African "Braai"and reflect on an awesome Zambezi day. We call this "Beer and medals time". Travel safely and we look forward to hosting you again soon, SAFPAR.

This was my favorite activity to do for my time in Livingstone, hands down! The guides are all so nice, very accommodating. The only major draw back to it all was the hike to & from the river was NO JOKE! Very intense. I would’ve really appreciated the lift to be in operation

Dear 308phoebem, Thank you for rafting with Safpar on the mighty Zambezi. We are all thrilled to hear this was your favourite adventure while in our adrenaline packed region. The hike into and out of the Batoka Gorge is perhaps the most challenging part of this Class-V rafting day and requires good walking shoes. Our guides are on hand to assist you and we have plenty of water. It is important to note that the ability to do these 20-25 minute hikes is an indication of the fitness levels necessary for this incredible river. You don't need to be an extreme athlete but after a day in the sun these hikes can be challenging. The Gorge lift you see at our high water take out was first installed for a defunct "Jetboat" operation. It has not passed any safety audits the past few years and has proven un-operable in the Batoka Gorge. Please share your complimentary media package wildly #safpar #safparzambia. We are extremely proud of our media team and the unbeatable quality of their productions. All of our trips are accompanied by a professional cameraman who runs the rapid's first in a kayak to shoot video and pictures of our guests. Take care on your travels and we hope to host you again soon. SAFPAR

I had a great experience rafting the Zambezi in February with a group of friends. The water was around medium level so we went from rapid #14 to #25. Our guide, Melvin, did an awesome job along with the photographer Julius and the rest of the safety team. I’d rafted twice before

Dear camronr344, Thank you for rafting with Safari-par-Excellence we are all happy to hear you had a great day with Malvin, Julius and our white water team on the mighty Zambezi. The Zambezi River section on which we raft is thankfully not dam controlled and does experience a great deal of seasonal water level variation. As such we are constantly changing our put on and take out points in the Batoka Gorge. Generally we are rafting rapids 1-21 from July to January, then running from rapid # 14 to # 25 from January to July with the exception of May when the river is at her highest and we usually close for the month. No two trips on this incredible river are ever the same and we encourage guests to contact us regards their expectations. I will be sure to pass on your compliments and regards to our guide team. All of our guides are International Rafting Federation accredited and hold class-V Rafting licenses. We are extremely proud of the care they take of their guests on this incredible river. We look forward to hosting you again soon, SAFPAR.

This was my first time rafting (among friends who’ve done it before) and I was excited but nervous. However the crew we were placed with were so great! They were informative, caring, and clearly experienced. There wasn’t a time where I felt unsafe. We flipped once and the rapids

Dear winnthepooh, Thank you for rafting and cruising on the mighty Zambezi with Safari-par-Excellence, we are all thrilled to hear you had a great experience with us. The Zambezi is rated as a Class-V river, which is the highest level of commercially available rafting, it is absolutely normal to be a bit nervous. We are all extremely proud of our team of white-water guides. They are extremely guest centred and adept at reading their adventure loving clients. We are happy to hear that they put you at ease. All of our guides are International Rafting Federation accredited and hold class-V rafting licenses. Most of our team have been with us for over 15 years, are trained in house and we are a close knit river family, that especially includes the guests who join us on this incredible river. The hike into and out of the Batoka gorge to enjoy the rafting is perhaps the most challenging part of the day. While you don't need to be an extreme level athlete, the ability to do these hikes is an indication of the fitness levels required to enjoy this class-V river. Good shows are a must, our guides are on hand with plenty of water and "there is no rush in Africa". The Cable car you see at the take out point was intended for a now defunct "Jetboat" operation. The machinery has not been serviced and is not insured to carry rafting clients. Take care on your onward travels, we look forward to hosting you agin soon. SAFPAR.
