Zambezi Challenge 2017


The Zambezi

Zambezi Challenge 2017

Charity challenges just don't get much more extreme than this! Water sport enthusiasts consider The Zambezi one of the BIGGEST 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, you have embarked on a river journey with some of the most exhilarating white-water and spectacular scenery that you'll experience in your life.

Exceptionally challenging, The Zambezi Challenge is a rafting expedition that will take you through some of the worlds' biggest commercially run rapids – this charity challenge is not for the faint hearted.

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!

Day 1 – Depart UK for overnight flight to Livingstone, Zambia.

Day 2 – Arrive Livingstone and meet local guides, transfer to lodge. Briefing about the Zambezi Challenge this evening and optional river safari taking in great game sights and typical African wildlife.

Day 3 – The Zambezi Challenge begins! Transfer to Victoria Falls and to your 'put in' point, another safety briefing and then you're off! Rapids today include 'Morning Glory', 'Stairway to Heaven' and more. These are the worlds' largest commercially run rapids. Overnight camp in a secluded sandy beach.

Day 4 – More white water awaits! After a hearty breakfast, you encounter further rapids including 'The Mother' and one of the most thrilling, rapid number 18, also called 'Oblivion'. Overnight camp on yet another secluded beach...this is Africa at its best.

Day 5 – The Zambezi Challenge continues – the first rapid 'Morning Shower' provides us with just that! Another great day of rafting and overnight camp at yet another glorious beach, within sight of the magnificent Lower Moemba Falls.

Day 6 – The final day of your Zambezi Challenge sees you take on 'Ghostrider' – one of the longest and biggest rapids on the Zambezi – a perfect end to your charity challenge.
