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

Even when occasionally things don't go to plan, we can, because of our experience and great partners, ensure alternatives can rectify the problem. Yes, it is hard... More

Highlight of our tour. So fantastic we wished we could do it again. Rafting is a must when visiting the Victoria Falls.

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. Unfortunately, it was 10 years before we booked the Zambezi Blast - but so worth the wait! The whole trip was amazing. You get to meet your fellow rafters and crew members on the sunset cruise before... More

compared to other rafting this one was a bit more advanced. First you have to climb down the 107 meter gorge to get to the boats. then we had lower water so we were able to do all rapids (except for number 9 - which no one ever does) which was intense in the 36 degrees celcius, at the end... More

We spent an amazing four days on the river with Water by Nature and I don't think there are enough superlatives to describe our experience. The whole trip was seamlessly organised from our pick up at Livingstone airport onwards. We were whisked from the airport to a sunset cruise along the upper Zambezi which was amazing to be outdoors after... More

We had the absolute pleasure of rafting the mighty Zambezi River with Zambezi Rafting Day Tours/Water By Nature.

Quite simply the best time/experience of my life. If the amazing experience of rafting down the Zambezi wasn't enough... Organised and supported by some of the nicest and amazing people I have met. Hamish, Lovemore, Tembo, Davey and Cuan were insane. They are such nice people and make the trip even more amazing. They really know what they are doing... More
