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 thought the rafting might be a bit too hairy and so we went with bundu on a swimming under the falls 2 hour trip which turned out a fantastic choice for us. You walk down into the gorge, cross the Zambezi by paddling like crazy in an inflatable raft then scramble across slippery rocks to swim and stand right... More

Did a full day's rafting with Potato and it was one of the most memorable experiences I've ever had. I've rafted in New Zealand but that was like a paddle down a river by comparison! This is a different kettle of fish and not for the faint hearted. We went with our two teenage children and their two friends who... More

One of the most fun days i've ever had, captain potato was hilarious whilst also being very competent. We flipped once on rapid no.8 but that was expected. Overall a brilliant experience, I thoroughly recommend

Against my better judgement i was persuaded by my 2 teenage boys to keep them company and do a full-day trip taking in all 25 Rapids (mostly to avoid the climb up after number 10 Apart from some very tame rapids in Costa Rica this was my attempt at rafting and whilst i might not do it again , it...

We went rafting and the day started getting exciting with me being thrown out on the first rapid and it only got better from there! I've rafted in South Africa and New Zealand and those experiences pale in comparison to the adventure we had down the Zambezi! 15 amazing rapids, beautiful views, wonderful sunshine and even the odd (baby) croc!...

Bundu adventures really gave us an amazing day down into the gorge and down the rapids. Potato was very friendly and kept all the first timers at ease and having fun:) It was an epic day and would recommend their services.

Stan the man!!!!! Such an unbelievable experience! Thanks to Stanley for the fun and professionalism! I felt so safe while going into mad rapids with our captain in control of every situation, even when we upside down! Thanks so much to Bundu for making this experience possible, it was absolutely exhilarating!

With a group of colleagues from Greenpop, I spent a day white water rafting on the Zambezi River with Captain Stan the Man. It's clear to see that Stan, Potato and the whole crew know that river down to the smallest details. You couldn't wish for a better selection of skilled, safety-conscious and wild individuals to take you on this... More

I booked weeks in advance for the Livingstone island tour with this company, only to arrive and be told my booking was only provincial. And the tour was now fully booked! I had even called bundu in the morning to confirm! This is very disappointing! Having done the rafting the day before (which was great) it was clear that their... More

As I tried to explain to you on the phone, the lady in my office understood that you want to cancel the booking on Livingstone Island as well. And that is what she did. She is adamant that you told her you are cancelling. As you also cancelled the canoe trip that same morning there seems to have been a... More

I wouldn't have done it without strong encouragement, and I am so glad that I did. Fantastic staff who made sure we had a good safety briefing and discussed the main rapids before we took them on!
