Welcome to the start of your journey White Water Rafting along the Zambezi, the fourth longest river in Africa. You will get taken you through some of the world’s biggest commercially run rapids, from the best white-water on the planet, amazing sandy beaches, to a helicopter flight through the Batoka Gorge and over Victoria Falls – It is a proper adventure that starts right here!
The Zambezi is the fourth largest river in Africa. The 3,540 Kilometre long river (2,200 miles) has its souce in Zambia. It flows through eastern Angola along the eastern border of Namibia. It then travels past the northern border of Botswana and between Zambia and Zimbabwe to Mozambique. This is where it crosses the country to empty into the Indian Ocean. The Zambezi’s best-known feature is Victoria Falls.
