Lazily float down the upper Zambezi River

The Raft Float activity takes place on the Upper Zambezi River above Victoria Falls, Zambia, ideal for groups who want something a little calmer than the extremes of the white water rafting. Safpar utilise rafts with a frame and oars for the guide. Paddles are provided for the clients but if you would sooner realax and let the guide do all the work, no problem. When rafting on the upper Zambezi River, Safpar uses state-of-the-art eight person inflatable rafts, these craft are incredibly stable when running small rapids yet are easy to manouver and paddle. Afterall, these are the same type of rafts we use to negotiate class 4 and 5 rapids in the gorge below the Victoria Falls.

The Zambezi river above the Victoria Falls changes its nature continuously, from wide open expances of water to narrow tree lined channels miandering between the mirriad of rock and sand islands. Game is abundant throughout your Zambezi River raft float. Species that may be encountered include Hippo, Crocodile, Ellephant, Waterbuck, the ellusive Cape Clawless Otter and hundreds of bird species.

While on the river safety is our major cancern, a full safety briefing is given before the safari commences, paddle training is given on dry land and then perfected on the river. The guide is always acompanied by a trainee/paddler, a comprehensive first aid kit and comunications equipment is always carried.

Based out of The Victoria Falls Waterfront, Safpar operate half day safaris departing and returning to Livingstone. Upper Zambezi Raft Float Safaris are ideal for larger groups, up to a maximum of 80.
