Dear AndreaDam99, Thank you for rafting with Safari-par-Excellence, we are all thrilled to hear you had an amazing experience with us on this incredible river and found your time with us to be great value for money. We don't believe in hidden costs and your day is all-inclusive, we raft the entire river from Rapid #1 to Rapid #21 and we do it in the morning. We are usually back in town by 1400 and our clients get to experience the entire river and all of the rapids. Fantastic to know you enjoyed the complimentary hosted cruise on the upper river after your trip, it is a great way to unwind and reflect on an awesome adventure, we call this time "beer and medals":). Take care on your travels and we hope you return to raft with us again soon, SAFPAR.

Dear IlseBr17, Thank you for rafting with Safari-Par-Excellence, we are all thrilled to hear you had a wonderful time with Choongo and our white-water team. The Zambezi is a Class-V 'graded' rafting river; Class-V is the highest level of commercially available rafting. A case of the nerves or "butterflies", before rafting this incredible river is perfectly normal. We are pleased to hear our team put you at ease. We absolutely give the Zambezi the respect she deserves, all of our team are international Rafting Federation accredited and hold class-5 rafting licences. We manage the inherent risk of this extreme adventure activity; with 30 years of experience and we spend a great deal of time de-briefing and re-training on developing scenarios. We are happy to hear you had a great time and enjoyed the trip with our crew, we are extremly proud of thier skill sets and the care they take of their guests. We look forward to hosting you again soon, SAFPAR

We had a blast on our rafting trip. All of the staff are very professional and helpful. Definitely wear sport sandals such as chacos if you have them or tennis shoes because the walk down and up is over rocks and some rough terrain. It’s all part of the adventure though! Melvin

Dear funemployedRN, Thank you for taking the time to do a Trip Advisor review of your rafting experience with Malvin and the rest of our white water team. We are all happy to know you had a blast on your rafting trip with Safari-par-Excellence. The hike into and out of the Batoka Gorge is perhaps the most challenging part of the day and it is vital that guests bring appropriate footwear for these trails, trainers are perfect. Our guides are on hand to assist guests and we do provide plenty of drinking water. The mantra is "no rush in Africa" and we implore guests to take their time. The hike takes the average client 20-25 minutes. While you don't need to be an extreme athlete the ability to do these hikes is an indication of the fitness levels required for this incredible river. We don't believe in hidden costs and are happy to hear you enjoyed your complimentary video and picture package. Please share widely #safparzambia. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you again soon, SAFPAR

I seriously can't recommend this place enough. We did the half day rafting/sunset booze cruise for $135, which was well worth the money as it was a full 12-hour day of activities. In fact, if you can, I would recommend asking to do the cruise a different day from the rafting to

Dear jesstenberg0, Thank you for rafting and cruising with Safari-par Excellence on the mighty Zambezi. You can absolutely do your complimentary cruise on a different day to your rafting trip if you would like to. We are all thrilled to hear, you had a great time with us, and found the day to be value for money. The Zambezi River offers what is arguably the finest one-day white water rafting trip on the planet. Starting off below the Victoria Falls, this warm water pool drop river is not to be missed. Our guides are the life and soul of our company and we are extremely proud of their skill sets and the care they take of their guests. All of our guides are International Rafting Federation accredited to Class-V and most have over 20 years experience with us. We back up these skill sets with an extensive logistical system that includes helicopter support should it be needed. Thank you for rafting with us and we hope to host you again soon. SAFPAR.

Spent a fantastic day with this company doing the white water rafting and then Zambezi cruise. Always felt safe and looked after during rafting. The trek down and up the gorge is TOUGH so really appreciated how much help the guides gave us. They were great fun for the whole

Dear talkingheads27, Thank you for your review of your raft/cruise day with Safari-par-excellence, we are all happy to hear you had an amazing day with us. At this time of year, the raft/cruise option is a tremendous day out. We recommend you bring a change of clothes with you and spend the day with us. We will collect you after your breakfast at your accommodation, bring you to our raft base on the banks of the Upper Zambezi River, give you all your kit and house your valuables. Transport you out to the Batoka Gorge and take you rafting. We have a small snack, on the river and on return to our rafting base at "The Victoria Falls Waterfront" we have lunch. The Victoria Falls Waterfront has ablution blocks and after a shower, it is onto one of our iconic upper Zambezi River cruise boats in the Mosi-oa Tunya national park. For a two hour all inclusive hosted cruise with a traditional African "braai". Thank you for your support and we look forward to hosting you again soon. SAFPAR.
