Charity challenges just don’t get much more extreme than this, taking on The Zambezi considered by water sports enthusiasts as one of the best white-water rivers in the world!
Beneath the mist of the stunning Victoria Falls, deep in the Batoka Gorge would have to be one of the most dramatic places in the World to start a charity challenge white-water rafting trip. From the very first rapid encountered, we have embarked on a river journey with some of the most exhilarating whitewater and spectacular scenery that we’ll experience in our lives.
From the best white-water on the planet, amazing sandy beaches, to a helicopter flight through the Batoka Gorge and over Victoria Falls – Africa delivers a feast of adventure in the world of charity events!
YOUR SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY
Not only have we been taking Zambezi challenge participants down this river since 2006, we are also proud to say our client safety record is impeccable. We feel that from our experience, we make educated and controlled decisions based on the safety of Zambezi challenge participants and crew. We are the only charity challenge company to have acataraft as a safety boat on the Zambezi, we use high volume (and hence effective) safety kayaks and we are the only charity challenge company to use leg flotation devices, which not only improve the overall buoyancy of a participant, but they also keep legs elevated in the correct white-water floating position. Above all, our best safety feature is our world-class team of guides – you are in the best hands by rafting the Zambezi Challenge with us.
GETTING THE BEST OUT OF THE WATER…AND WEATHER!
We organise the Zambezi Challenge at the best time of year to give you the best possible challenge experience. The Zambezi Challenge rapids in the Batoka Gorge (below Victoria Falls) are at their best between August and November in ‘low water’ – this ensures the drops are bigger and the weather is better… and sunnier!
