Zambezi River

Ending the day with a sunset cruise on the Zambezi with Zambia on one side and Zimbabwe on the other. Spectacular scenery and lots of wildlife including Hippos and Nile Crocs. Great food and unlimited grog. Then G&Ts went down very well.

Some of our crew braved the grade 5 rapids of the lower Zambezi while the rest of us chose to drift 8km down the upper Zambezi. We had a dramatic moment when a huge bull elephant charged our raft and caused some frantic back paddling. We had encounters with Hippos and Nile Crocodiles as well as numerous bird species. The mighty Zambezi lived up to its fearsome reputation for both groups.
