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.

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.

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
