I recently did a 34 day overland trip through Africa and while travelling we had the pleasure of spending a few days in Livingstone.
I originally wasn't too keen on the water rafting day trip down level 5 rapids, however all my friends seemed to be doing it so i felt why not?
I was quite nervous and remember sitting at the safety briefing wondering what i had got myself into! However, i needn't have been so worried.
From the get go, the crew were amazing and the comprehensive safety briefing was so comprehensive i immediately felt i was i safe and capable hands.
You have a choice of the half day or whole day rafting. If you choose to do the half day you will still get to do the most intense and exciting rapids as the first 10 of the day are more intense than the later rapids.
despite the safety briefing i was still pretty nervous and my stomach was doing knots as we walked down to the water. However as soon as we got into the raft the real excitement began.
For the next few hours we had to synchronise our strokes as a team in order to overcome and master each rapid. The adrenaline pumping through my body as we approached each rapid was zoo intense and i was in a constant stake of excitement and fear mixed together.
Our boat did a 'fun' flip at the end of the day (after successfully completing the first 9 rapids without flipping) which was also really fun despite my initial fear.
I would recommend a day rafting to everyone. The feeling i got from riding those rapids was like nothing i have experienced before!! A definite thrill for people seeking an adrenaline rush like no other!
