Overview

safpar-zambezi-white-water-rafting-best-white-water-rafting-in-the-worldEvery traveller has different time constraints, fitness levels and expectations. Given enough time in Livingstone a full day Zambezi white water rafting adventure allows for 5 hours on the river, experiencing the more challenging morning section from rapids #1 to #10 and a more relaxed afternoon through to #25. Once you have completed this exciting challenge you will see why the Zambezi River offers some of the best white water rafting in the world.

Half Day options are great for those with limited time and want to experience other Livingstone activities during their stay. The AM Half Day Trip is the more challenging trip of the two, with the PM rafting trip being a little more relaxed. A cable car lift out of the gorge is used at rapid #25, this is included in all rafting trips ending here (full day and PM). Rafting trips ending at rapid #10 require all rafters to hike 200m out of the gorge, which can be challenging in the warmer months in the middle of the day. You do not have to be super fit, but a little stamina is required. Don’t worry, it is not a race to the top so you can take your time and take in the views if you wish.

Low Water vs High Water

The Whitewater Rafting season is split into the Low Water Rafting trip and the High Water Rafting trip. The Low Water season is usually between August and New Year, this is when it is safe to raft rapids #1 through to rapid #25. The numbering of the rapids was introduced in the early 1980’s when the river was first navigated, rapid #1 being under the falls and the numbered rapids covering the 25km through to rapid #25.

When the river is high it is unsafe to raft from rapids #1 to rapids #10. Known as the High Water Rafting trip we operate a shorter river trip from rapids #10 through to rapid #25. The High Water rafting trip usually operates between New Year and July. Some seasons the river can rise dramatically and due to Safety concerns we stop Zambezi white water rafting, this is often for a month either side of the rivers highest flow levels around the first week of May.
