Feel the adrenaline course through you on the Shearwater Jetboat experience. Hold on tight while the captain plots a route through the Zambezi River.

These 465 horsepower, bespoke-made Adventure Jetboats will take you right up the rapids and under the Falls into the Boiling Pot.

The true power and intensity of the Falls can only be felt as you view them from below.

After leaving the Boiling Pot, it’s time for a fast-paced and thrilling thrill ride up and down Batoka Gorge and through the Rapids.

The Shearwater Jetboat Experience has been specially designed for the Zambezi, and the captains are trained in river navigation. They’ll make sure you have the experience of a lifetime and then they’ll get you home safely.
