Availablity  
If you're looking for adventure in Zimbabwe, experience the Zambezi River on a white-water rafting tour with pickup in Victoria Falls. With a guide, travel down one of the best one-day rafting rivers in the world, which plummets into a gorge at Victoria Falls, separating the placid river above the falls and the turbulent rapids below. The gorge is more than 328 feet (100 meter) deep at the falls and increases to more than 650 feet (200 meters) by the end of the full-day raft trip. Select a half-day or full-day trip when booking (dependent on availability). Water levels will determine whether you do low- or high-water rafting.

This was a very well organized experienced, with a great team of people making sure we had a good time. The raft has a guide and instructor who made the whole trip feasible. When we signed up for rafting, I was worried what we were getting ourselves into. I hadn't gone rafting in over 15 years, and never did more than class 2 rapids. Here, with just an intro, we could go miles down the Zambezi, over class 5 rapids. Although our raft never flipped and no one fell out, we got to jump in and swim part of the river. Combined with some hiking down and up to and from the river, this was one of our most enjoyable experiences in southern Africa.

Was a great experience, OG our guide made sure we didn't topple our boat as we asked him not to. Got to swim in the river as well. This was a lot of fun and appropriate for whole family including inexperienced rafters this was our fourth rafting trip.
