Day 2 Rafting

·         We rise as the sun illuminates the towering walls above, to the smell of bacon and eggs on the fire.

·         Then, with all the equipment once more stowed securely for the voyage down stream, and a long day ahead of us , we cast off into a world of exhilarating action and scenes of remarkable beauty.

·         Its a hard working evening with two portaging around Moemba Falls.

·         We arrive at the Dam site around 4pm where we will have the second portage and camp right by the falls.

 

Day 3 Rafting (Dinner, Bed & Breakfast + Lunch)

·         We will have a relaxed morning, downstream the towering waves of Ghost rider, the biggest commercially run-able roller coaster wave train in the World.

·         In the original exploratory trip on the Zambezi one of the rafters opted not to run the rapid and pushed his empty boat off into the current.

·         After surviving the Ghost rider rapid it will be the time to open our cooler boxes full of beers and start drinking as we will be drifting down small rapids.

·         We get to camp at about 16:00 after travelling about 20 kms.

 

Day 4 Rafting (Dinner, Bed & Breakfast + Lunch)

·         There is no rush on this day and after breakfast, rigging the boats and a late departure from camp, we paddle past a set of small rapids before negotiating a more technical rapid named Asleep At The Wheel, and then drift into camp!

·         After departing camp we drift past Fish Eagle’s nests, negotiate rapids – Wave Train, Jay Bay, (similar to Jeffrey’s Bay in South Africa – a popular surfing place), Bismark’s Territory, (home to a particularly large crocodile named Bismark!) and Smugglers Camp.

·         This is the biggest fisherman’s village encountered during the 6 day trip and the villagers are happy to show us around, giving us a glimpse at an astonishingly uncomplicated and simple lifestyle, totally free from the modern urban world we left behind some days ago.

 

Day 5 Rafting (Dinner, Bed & Breakfast + Lunch)

·         The river really changes character. Basalt rocks give way to grassy banks and the grunts of vocal hippopotamus carry across the water.

·         Our rafts drift past islands in the river, havens for Egyptian Geese and basking crocodiles. After a couple of hours, we rendezvous with our vehicles near the Matetsi River mouth.

·         After packing up and deflating the rafts we head back to Victoria Falls by road, having lunch on route.

·         The journey back takes about 3 hours. After taking time out to unpack and freshen up, a group dinner and party is always a favorite option
