White Water Rafting at the Victoria Falls

Rafters take on the formidable rapids of the Batoka Gorge.

Experience the thrill of white water rafting on the Zambezi River near the Victoria Falls.

The African continent’s surging wild rivers ensure a variety of activities for adrenalin junkies, particularly white water rafting. There are many locations throughout Southern Africa where this exhilarating activity can enjoyed, making it a great addition to any African safari or tour.

South Africa’s main rivers, the Vaal and Orange, offer mild rapids for beginners or less experienced rafters in the Gauteng, Free State and Northern Cape regions. KwaZulu-Natal’s South Coast is home to the Umkomaas and Umgeni Rivers, which both provide intense paddling and rafting. Mpumalanga’s Blyde River offers a more challenging (and wonderfully scenic) feat.

Perhaps the most exciting river course to raft is the Zambezi River on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. This rolling water mass is best known for the thundering Victoria Falls. The termination of the falls provides a roaring gorge of rapids for wild, wet and wonderful fun.
