Overview
More
Instead of immediately embarking on that arduous climb at the end of an amazing day of rafting adventure from rapids #1 to #21, seize the opportunity to camp overnight in the depths of the gorge on one of the pristine riverside beaches used exclusively for Shearwater clients. Enjoy complete peace and serenity as the light fades and the starry African blanket is revealed. Raft again next day.

If you visit Victoria Falls, even though these trips are short and expensive, it is by far the best view of the falls you will get. I strongly recommend spending the money to do it. They picked us up at the hotel, took us to...More
