This was an amazing experience! Staff are super helpful and easy going, coupled with the Zambezi that has Grade 3 to 5 level rapids. Almost guaranteed to flip over in rapid number 18 (we did!) Only con I would say is that to access and leave the Zambezi, you have to walk down

Dear Knasidai, Thank you for rafting the Zambezi River with Safpar, we are all pleased to hear you had an amazing experience. The Zambezi is rated as a class-V river, class-V is the highest level of commercially available rafting and rapid # 18, "Oblivion" is a well known, if not "infamous" class-V rapid on this incredible river. You are now part of a select club who has "ridden the thunder". The Zambezi River section on which we raft is located in the steep-sided "Batoka Gorge". In order to access the river, it is necessary to hike into and out of the gorge. The Zambezi River experiences massive seasonal water level variation and we change the entry and exit points throughout the year. Some of these paths are more challenging than others, but in general, they take the average guest 15-25 minutes to climb. While you don't need to be an extreme athlete to take on these steep climbs, these climbs can be the most challenging part of the day and are indicative of the fitness levels required to enjoy rafting this incredible river. One of our constant challenges is reminding guests to bring sufficient footwear for these climbs. A pair of trainers or "Takkies" are perfect. Take care on your travels and we look forward to hosting you again soon, SAFPAR,

Will advise anyone visiting Livingstone to do this if you have a day open. Professional, enjoyable and very different experience from what one gets more and more of these days - mass marketing and just going through the motions. Well done Captain Chongo and team!

The river is amazing and the small army of machine like men made rafting it possible. The professional guides and amazing porters worked so hard in the heat to bring my family and friends down the river safely and with the most adrenaline and energy possible. Everyone was super

Dear Joshua R, Thank you for rafting with Safari-par-excellence; we are all thrilled to hear, that you had a great time on this incredible river with Chris and our white water team. The Zambezi offers what is arguably the finest one-day white water rafting trip on the planet and should not be missed. The catch, however, is that to raft this class-V river it is necessary to hike into and out of the Batoka Gorge. In the heat, these hikes can be the most challenging part of the day. We implore our guests to wear good walking shoes, trainers are ideal. While you don't have to be an extreme athlete, the ability to negotiate these 20-25 minute hikes is an indication of the fitness levels necessary for this class-V river. Our guides are on hand to assist guests and we have plenty of drinking water on hand. We look forward to welcoming you back soon and wish you safe travels, SAFPAR

Dear Philli S, Thank you for rafting with Chongo and our white water team here at Safari-par-Excellence. We are all thrilled to hear we exceeded your expectations and you had an incredible day with us on this amazing river. The Zambezi River generally reaches her lowest levels in the first week of November and the river begins to rise after that. The Zambezi is a high volume river and even at her lowest, the rapids are always incredibly good fun. Please be sure to share your complimentary media package widely #safparzambia and we look forward to hosting you again soon. SAFPAR
