Tour programme
- Preparation:
We pick you up at your hotel in Victoria Falls city between 7:00 and 7:30 am. Then you receive a small breakfast from us and we head to our office where you are required to fill in some papers before the tour can start. There, you can also leave your personal belongings which shouldn't get wet. Next, we drive in our jeep to the starting point of our tour where your guide goes through all the safety key points and briefs you about the usage of the equipment. We enter the gorge and the rafting adventure can begin. If you don't feel comfortable to enter the gorge from the very steep and high part, we offer an easier entrance.
- Tour:
Depending on the length of the tour which you have chosen, you spend in the Batoka Gorge 3 to 4 hours. Together with your guide, you find your way through the rapids of the Zambezi river in a stern mount or a paddle raft. During the tour, we do swimming breaks and as well a lunch break when you get some local specialities.
- Arrival:
The last part is a steep climb out of the gorge. There, a car is already waiting for you with some cold beverages to celebrate a successful tour. Afterwards, we drive you back to your hotel.
