They gave me an incredibly good treatment, got me last minute tours with no problems. During rafting they where super profesionals, and made the trecking and rafting experience really interesting, the rafting lunch was really good enough food beverages and good mood.

Bot the office staff and guides who work at Shockwave are world class - accommodating, professional, experienced. Shockwave is the only locally owned rafting company in Vic Falls and by booking with them, you are doing your part in traveling responsibly and supporting local businesses.
