Owner description: 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.

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.

We did the half day rafting with these guys and had an awesome day out! The staff were all incredible and truly made the adventure an exciting day out. The guys were friendly, very funny but took safety seriously and made us feel safe the entire time. I could not rate this company highly enough... They were all so proud... More

Ok the initial instruction and safety brief was good, and like all activities here you have to sign your life away. My husband and I had decided when we booked our holiday that this was the MUST do activity and we were right. Getting down to it was for me very difficult but with help from the very very patient...

...this is it. We did a half day with Potato. Bundu did an excellent job corresponding with me before I got to Zambia. The safety briefing was thorough and I felt like they had plenty of safeguards in place. At each rapid, we were briefed on how to navigate and what to do just in case the raft tipped. I'm... More

Thank you so much for your great review, Good to hear that you enjoyed the rafting and felt safe and well instructed throughout the trip. It is true, that the ladders at rapid # 10 after the Half Day trip are quite steep but are a very effective way to climb out of the gorge on the shortest way possible.... More

I have been down the river with Bundu Adventures twice now; one full day, one half day and both experiences have been amazing! The pick up is on time,otherwise they let you know if they are running late. They communicated well with me throughout the booking process and I felt well informed before we went on the river.

It takes a long time for knowing for the confirmation. The ride was in a uncomfortable car, too windy and very cold. We must pay everything and we just to the half of the rapids. They didn't tell us. We must go down somewhere in the middle and it was very steep and dangerous. Rafting was nice, but take the... More
