Description: The Zambezi River offers some of the best white water rafting available...
The Zambezi River offers some of the best white water rafting available anywhere on the planet! We make sure the rafting is safe and a fun thing to do. We also offer Swimming under the Victoria Falls, where you go down into the gorge and view the Falls from below! Canoeing is the best way to see the wildlife of the upper Zambezi. On our rafting and fishing trip you have the chance to land the notorious Tiger fish (catch and release), while rafting the most challanging rapids. Our motto is: safety, fun and sustainability.

We were a Group of 8 First-timers. This was extremely scary and nerve wreaking in the beginning. The Climb down was super hard especially for me who has never seen a Gym. The first few Grade 1&2 Cataracts got our heart throbbing and heighten our fears. We learnt all the safety briefings and experienced them in calm waters - Jumping... More

Both of these were spectacular! Beautifully organized, with safety always at the forefront. As an older person I felt absolutely safe at all times. White water rafting- best adventure of my life. Captain Potato outstanding character- funny and knowledgeable. To look up at the Falls coming down while swimming under the falls was awesome. Bet Livingstone never had that opportunity!... More

I booked a one day white water rafting trip online after reading a couple of reviews on Trip Advisor and on Bundu Adventures website. It certainly exceeded my expectations and can honestly say it was one of the most memorable, fun, exciting and incredible days I have ever had. I must compliment the Bundu Adventures team, they are just the... More

We loved captain potatoe... he was awesome. The trip was brilliant and filled with laughter and fear!...the only negative which has spoilt it for us is the poor quality of the video dvd that we bought for $60.00....it is jumpy and does not play properly. I would suggest anyone to not buy the video.....all we wanted was a dvd that... More

Thank you for your review. Good to hear you had a great time on the river. As I explained to you on the phone, we don't sell DVD's that can be played directly on a DVD player. We sell our videos in a .mp4 format. We chose this format because it is very versatile: you can play it on your... More

I did the full day rafting + swimming under the falls combo earlier this year in October. Absolutely worth it! If you are around Livingstone, this is definitely a can't miss. Our guide, Potato, couldn't have been better. Definitely some of the most intense rafting I've done, but at no point did I feel unsafe. We did end up flipping... More

We went on the Bundu Adventures Under The Spray tour at Victoria Falls. Having geared up, we walked down to the falls, which did include lots of scrambling and climbing. We then headed into the Falls. on the raft, using the paddles to get closer to the Falls. Another scramble and we were free to jump in the water and... More

This was definitely one of the highlight of our trip. Rafting the Zambezi is awesome and yes it can be scary but that i part of the fun. We got a comprehensive safety briefing and of we went. First we swam directly under the falls (which is something the other rafting outfits do not do!) and then we started down... More

Thank you so much for your brilliant review, your words sooth our souls again after the previous review we received! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the trip with us and yes - you are right, the Zambezi is pumping especially this time of the year when the water level is low! The rapids are really big and...

At our hotel, the Royal Livingstone, our group booked a half day rafting tour on the Zambezi river. All seven of us were sitted on one raft guided by "the Black Lizzard" (simultaneously started another raft from a different company with only 4 passangers and 3 guides on board!!!). We got a short safety briefing before the start. We managed... More

Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the rafting on the Zambezi. When we get bookings of a group we try to accommodate them in one raft. As you were a group of 7 people we took one of our big rafts which is designed to carry 8 passengers in order to give you the experience to raft down... More

We had an totally awesome time on "Test the Best Rafting Tour". We were fortunate not to flip over and we had to rescue other trippers on our tour. One can even dive in the river safely as we all had life jackets on.
