Day One


Welcome to Livingstone. Our guides will meet and transfer you from the airport to Fawlty Towers or Jollyboys to check into your room for the next 10 days. Then its off for a sunset cruise on the Upper Zambezi and settle into African life, witha  few drinks and a barbeque.

Day Two


We are off to make a full run down the river today. We will point out and stop at all the major play spots and show you how much FUN this river is. We will take a break at 12B for lunch and the opportunity to surf and then have a great lunch and watch the rafts come through. After lunch we paddle down to 25 and take the awesome drive back into Livingstone.

Included: Breakfast and Lunch

Day Three


Obviously the actual itinerary is dependent on water levels and what rapids are at their best, but this is our base itinerary. We'll head down to the Boiling Pot and take a look at the amazing minus rapids made famous by a certain swim by Dale Jardine, and then we'll head down for some surfing at Rapid 2. Although, not a huge rapid, the smooth green face of the wave, makes it the ideal place to practise some basic aerial moves. Our instructors will both instruct on techniques and sometimes use video to show you exactly what you are doing right and wrong! Then we are off to 3 and a half for some fun, before we blast down to 4, 5 and 5 and a half and we'll take out at 6 after plenty of paddling and moves to satisfy the most avid playboater.

Included: Breakfast and Lunch

Day Four


We'll collect you after breakfast and head down to Rapid 7B for a warm up before heading down to the Midnight Diner possibly the most excellent place on the river to wavewheel... right into Startrek! After 9, we head down to 11 (this is a dream wave around January) and then off to stay at Rapid 12B for as long as we can manage! This wave is at its ultimate in September and October and as such this is when we plan on running these trips. 12B has an amazing steep green wave backed up on the river right by a small foam pile that helps keep on the wave. Its fed by a service eddy on river left, that is fairly easy to enter the rapid from... depending on how tired you are. From here we paddle down through 13 and then its back to town.

Included: Breakfast and lunch

Day Five - Rest Day


This is your chance to experience all the amazing activities available in Livingstone. Try your hand at Bungy, Gorge Swing, take a safari, go on a microlight or helicopter flight, or just take a spot beside the pool and listen to your iPod and read your favourite book.

Day Six


Today after breakfast we head to the walk in track at Rapid 10. From here we have the treat of running 11, 12B and then movong sown to the amazing surf spot of rapid 17. The famous rapid 18 will give you the opportunity to paddle BIG Water and have possibly one of the most fun waves to paddle anywhere. This is Zambezi Whitewater at its best.

Included: Breakfast and Lunch

Day Seven


There is nothing better than camping out on the river, right? Todays trip allows you to take your time and we get to spend a night in the gorge at Rapid 10.
