I met Hamish on the airplane flying in to Livingston and told him we wanted to raft the river, not knowing that he owns a river company. He invited us to go on the one raft he had going down at that time. He was taking world class kayakers down the river. We joined them and had the time of... More

We rafted with Water by Nature in Morocco May 2013 and enjoyed it so much we decided we would take on the Mighty Zambezi in September 2014. We were met at the airport by Hamish and briefly introduced to our fellow rafters before being transported to our hotel. After freshening up we set of on a sunset cruise whilst enjoying... More

Took the 7 day Zambezi Blast with Water by Nature... We saw a few other rafts on Day 1 but for the rest of the trip we had the river to ourselves. Great people, great food ( day 4 was wine and cheese overlooking the falls at Lower Mowemba ). It's back to basics yes and some days are hard....if... More

Yes, the Zambezi is an amazing, and wonderful free river. It is in an isolated part of the world, but we do everything possible to ensure guests complete safety and as many of the home comforts as we can. This is in addition to the awesome scenery, wonderful river, great food, and a lifetime of memories to take away. Where... More

In Sept '14 I had the one of the most memorable, fun filled and exhilarating weeks of my life rafting on the Zambezi river with Water by Nature. WbN are absolute professionals with every member of their team going to extraordinary lengths to keep the group happy, safe and very well fed! The adventure began with a sunset cruise which... More

It also gives opportunity to meet the other rafters and the guides, ready for the start of the next day. Safety for our guests is our first consideration and we have a very... More

we were 10 friends visiting Zambia and Zimbabwe on a roundtrip with a rented minibus. We stayed overnight near the roaring falls. The falls was an impressing even for norwegians used to high waterfalls at home. Most adventurous was however a whitewater rafting right downstream the falls. Can be recommended to persons not afraid of getting wet.

Yes! This is what the Zambezi is about. Spectacular rafting & kayaking in one of the premier rivers of the world. Thank you for your comments and we a glad you had an amazing time. Over the next few years, we want as many people as possible to experience the Zambezi as you have, before it is dammed. More

Having read M_ review below painting both Hamish and Water by Nature in a very poor light I feel compelled to set the story straight. I have been white water rafting all over the world for 15 years. Of those, I have done many trips with Water by Nature including the multi day Zambezi one. This was an amazing trip... More

We can not recommend this trip highly enough! The pre-trip information was very thorough & helped build the excitement. Despite our flight being delayed, we were met at the airport & taken to our first nights accommodation. The sunset cruise provided the perfect opportunity to meet the rest of our little group. The next morning the real adventure was to... More

While Hamish, the owner/operator of the company, was truly helpful before we set off on our journey - we found out that he did very little from the UK to actually ensure that our trip was well organized. It was only because the staff on the ground (minus the Kiwi driver that was on drugs most of the time) was... More

We first rafted with Waterbynature in Turkey and had such a good time, we decided it wouldn't be our last trip with them.
