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

  • Built right on the water’s edge, Carribea Bay Hotel will be your home for the next three nights. You will also enjoy your first sound of the iconic call of a passing African fish eagle.
  • Although Kariba is literally on your doorstep, the lodge has a swimming pool to avoid unexpected encounters with hippos or water monitors!
  • The skipper will welcome you on a fishing expedition as well as ride to Fothergill Island, where many of the animals displaced by the building of the lake in the 1960s found a welcome sanctuary.
  • End each day with an iced drink, watching the water turn over deeper shades of orange as the sun sets over the horizon.
