The Batoka Gorge is the Gorge below the Victoria Falls where the Zambezi River flows towards the Indian Ocean. The Gorge is home to world-renowned rapids 13 to 21 which are rated amongst the most challenging and thrilling rapids on the planet.
After an exciting days rafting, the steep climb out of the deep Gorge is a strenuous one for White Water Rafters. Batoka Sky have constructed helicopter landing pads at rapids 10, 21 and 25 to chopper rafters out of the Gorge. The fantastic cost saving rafting, helicopter combos provide an exhilarating ascent out of the Gorge back to Batoka Sky, or to the lodges further upstream.
To put the Victoria Falls into true perspective, they must really be seen from the air. The sheer size and grandeur of the spectacle becomes all the more clearer from above.
The huge Zambezi River flowing slowly south as the water spreads across the full width of a great rent in the earth before crashing over the lip in a burst of spray and then squeezing into a narrow, foaming, blast of water rushing down the zigzag funnel of the gorges. Hippos and crocodiles are clearly visible in the shallow waters, as well as elephants quietly browsing on bright green islands.
Let the flight tell you the story of how the vegetation disperses itself to share sunlight and water. How the river craned a path across the world and how when the sun bounces off the surface of the water leaving behind a speck of light, so it appears there are a thousand diamonds glittering on the mighty river’s back.
It is an awe-inspiring 15 minute flight approaching the Magnificent Face of the Falls over the Upper Gorge .
