The Seamless Shuttle

Your Paddling Logistics

Prices from: $55/day

Let us take all the worry out of arranging your kayaking logistics on the Zambezi River. Far from just "tagging along" on a rafting trip, these are kayaking trips for paddlers. Your Park Fees, porters, transport to and from the river and a cold beer at the end of the day are all included in your day. Book just one or multiple days for your paddling trip. On your first day on the water, we will send a guide with you (at a cost of $100 per group of paddlers) to show you the lines. You will after all be paddling one of the best rivers in the world. You can bring your own gear or we have boats and gear to hire if you need them.

PLEASE NOTE, we require 4 paddlers per day to make this work. Departure is at 7:30am from Livingstone and we'll pick you up at your backpackers and drop you back there at the end of the day.

Your Day


You'll be collected by our guides from where you are staying between 8 and 9am and taken to the section that has been agreed upon to paddle. You have a range of excellent choices, starting either from rapid number 1 or number 10 you can choose how long a section you would like to paddle, whether that's a full day from 1-21 or a short blast from 10 to play the day away on the wave at 12b. We will arrange porters for your boats into and out of the gorge and getting you back to town for a few beers.

Daily departure times from JOLLYBOYS BACKPACKERS are as follows:

- Shuttle to rapid number 10 at 7:30am

- Shuttle to rapid number 1 at 9:30am

- Pick up at number 10 at 2:00pm

- Pick up at number 21 at 4:00pm

Pickups from other accommodation may vary.

There is a board up at JollyBoys Backpackers to put your name down for which shuttle you would like to catch.

Pick Up Point & Time

You'll be collected by the guide team between 7:30 and 9:30am. You will be dropped back off around 5 pm depending on which section you have chosen to paddle.

When booking on line, this activity is considered as "accommodation" so you can book consecutive days. For example, if you are planning to paddle from 1-7 August inclusive, add this as your date range. See you on the river.
