Take on the biggest grade 5 rapids in the world and join the pioneers of white-water rafting on the mighty Zambezi river on a Shearwater Rafting Experience. No other white water compares to the Zambezi. This is one of the world’s top rafting mecca's.
As pioneers of rafting in Victoria Falls, The Shearwater white water history dates back to 1985. The guides are the best in the business because they’ve been on this river during all seasons and know the rapids better than anyone. No one can match their unrivalled experience, knowledge, and focus on safety.
Choose either the one-day Shearwater trip for a taste of white water rafting or the overnights, two-night, and four-night trips that take you to sections of the Zambezi seldom visited. The multi-day trips generally run between August and December, but this depends on the amount of rain that has fallen upstream.
On the longer trips, after a hard rafting day, relax with a cold beer on a white sandy beach. Engage in the peace and tranquillity of the gorge. You'll stay in tents, enjoy a wide variety of local food, and experience the stars of Africa's clear night sky.
The One Day Shearwater Rafting Experience
All rafters must be 15 years of age or older, and should have a reasonable level of fitness. The walk in and out of the gorge is equivalent to climbing a 70-story building, with stops along the way for rest and drink breaks if needed. Please declare any health issues upfront.
