Enjoy all the activities that the mighty Zambezi River has to offer
Zambezi Sunset Cruise Sunset Cruise trips along the Zambezi are a magnificent and extremely popular way to experience the river. All the boats, bar the jet boats, navigate a 6 km stretch of river above the Falls themselves, shallow waters and hazardous rocks prevent them from venturing any further. Although you do not see the Falls themselves during a cruise, a cloud of spray, visible from the boats, sits on the horizon, crowning the waterfall.
River Safari Cruise This section of river, which starts 3kms above the Falls is placid and wide and dissected with many islands. Resident hippo and crocodile are guaranteed sightings, whilst elephant herds are often seen as they cross from one island to the other in search of food. The birdlife is phenomenal and the sunsets are truly unforgettable.
Fishing This unspoilt stretch of water has always attracted wildlife enthusiasts and travelled sport fishermen as it’s home to the legendary Tiger Fish. Here, man and fish meet under the African sky, an encounter that has many coming back year after year. Tiger Fishing on the Zambezi River is ideal for fly fishing, spin and lure anglers of all levels, and bait fishing. The Zambezi River, Zambia is a beautiful natural habitat for Africa’s most spectacular and sought-after game fish, the fierce Tiger Fish, as well as Bream and Catfish. The tigerfish’s ability to bite through a lure with their razor-sharp teeth makes them an extremely exciting fish to catch
Canoe As our canoe safari transports us through beautifully remote areas, we make camp beneath the stars. We carry only essential provisions for your safety and comfort, with our itinerary recommended by weather, river conditions and game sightings. As we journey further away from the canoe launch point, there’s little to no road access to long stretches of the river. Solid planning and experienced professional canoe safari guides are essential prerequisit
Zambezi River Rafting The rapids are run in large rubber rafts launched from just below the Falls. You can do a half day trip, full day or two day. When the river is high, from March to July, only the last 13 rapids can be attempted. As the water subsides, from June to February, all 23 are navigable. If you are keen for the ultimate thrill then a multi-day trip along the Zambezi is it! After a full day of white water rafting the Zambezi, you’ll set up camp in the Batoka Gorge and listen to the wildlife, gaze into the campfire and down a few cold drinks before you settle in for the night. Rise to a big breakfast, and the crazy adventure starts again! Perfect for a group (4+ persons) travelling together. Overnight camps are on sandy beaches on the River’s edge, deep within the Gorge.

It offers daring swimmers the chance to experience the ultimate delight: peering over the brim of the largest curtain of falling water in the world.
