What to Bring

Lazily Float Down the Upper Zambezi River

Exploring the Scenic Upper Zambezi River: A Raft Float Adventure

The Upper Zambezi River is a beautiful place for a raft float, with stunning vegetation such as ebonies, water berries, palms and a tremendous variety of acacia and Albizia.

The Raft Float route whilst operated in Zimbabwe passes through national Park located in Zambia, and the pristine bush land of Zambia where there is a possibility of chances to see game such as elephant, giraffe ,zebras and water buck and numerous birdlife. While on the river safety is our major concern, a full safety briefing is given before the safari commences, paddle training is given on dry land and then perfected on the river.

The guide is always accompanied by a trainee/paddler, a comprehensive first aid kit and communications equipment is always carried.

Safety & Security

We want our guests to have the time of their lives. We want them to experience a world like no other, to tick off their bucket lists, to create memories to share and stories to tell for years to come. But more than this, we want them to be – and feel – safe and secure from minute one.

It’s why we’re pretty much obsessed with safety and continually look for new ways to build on our safe practices. Some might call it pedantic, we call it the foundation of everything we do.

Public Liability

Both staff and passengers, whether in vehicle or on the river, are registered with Ace and Ambulance (Medical Air Rescue Services), which provides 24-hour road and air cover. In case of incident on the river, they are always on standby with ambulances and helicopters for fast evacuation to the nearest private hospital. We are also members of the following associations: Zimbabwe National Parks & Wildlife Africa’s Eden and Zimbabwe Tourism Authority
