Shockwave Adventures did an absolutely amazing job with our white water rafting trip down the Zambezi. The guides were incredible and we felt completely comfortable with our entire family participating, including our 12 yr old daughter. The rapids did not disappoint! We would definitely recommend them to any families with children wanting to white water raft.

It was an amazing experience. Terrence was a great captain and we really enjoyed the rafting. food was also excellent at the end of the trip. On top of that, they also helped us a lot looking for great accomodation in Victoria Falls and also recommended some excellent restaurants and activities. If we ever come back, we will repeat again.

Great experience! Highly recommend. Communication, pickup, pricing, and safety was top notch. Had a great day on the river with our guide Terrance, safety kayakers Tambu and Silent. Owen, our driver picked us up and dropped off directly to our hotel. Andd last but not least, our cook Farayi made us a delicious braai lunch after we got out of the water and had beers waiting for us up top. Could not have had a better experience with any other company. Shockwave is the only company to go with if you are considering doing a rafting trip down the Zambezi. Half day stretch was the perfect amount of time being out on the water. Highly recommend!!

I had an incredible time doing the day trip from rapid 11 to 23 with Shockwave Adventures. The guides were safe, professional, and excellent company. The scenery is exquisite, and the stretch of river is incredible. I’m a raft guide in the USA, and my guide, Titi, was exceptional. The ways that he commanded the boat and read the river made me feel very safe— I knew that there was an expert at the oars. Moreover, Shockwave ensure that there were safety kayakers along the way, JB and Tambu. They were excellent company, great guides, and made me and other customers feel very safe on the river. The pickup from my accommodation was very smooth, and the lunch at the top from Edwin was excellent. I strongly recommend Shockwave for anyone planning to raft in and around Vic Falls

The rafting at Zambezi with Shockwave is unforgettable experience you should not miss especially if you are a family with kids, you are not untouched by watersports and you are eager to have a common strong experience and fun together. The Shockwave team is very friendly, helpful, professional and organized and also is able to react on your specific needs. The Shockwave is the only one in Victoria Falls who accept the Zambezi rafting with kids below 15 years and you do not need to worry at all – all is safe and the Shockwave team is ready to make your trip amusing and enjoyable as you wish – either fully as part of the crew or just sitting (kids). We (family with 3 kids - 10 to 14 years old, doing rafting and canoeing with kids since their early years) have spent an incredible rafting day with a Shockwave team which has been simply perfect from the beginning till the end. Starting with pick up, availability of full equipment – wet suits, life jackets, helmets – necessary kid’s sizes available, perfect instructions and practicing of the maneuvers in expected situations during the trip. The ride safety is enhanced by the “rescue” kayak who is ready to pick up from water potential “man/woman overboard”. The rafting itself was experience of a life time with lot of fun and jokes together with information about river and surrounding. At the first rapids „the raft captain“ tested our skills and after that we got into the world of waves, water splashes and whirlpools in full speed. The ride was full of laughter and jokes but also interesting talks with all the crew, so you can learn more about the life in the country. Smooth and safe ride was finished with a delicious freshly prepared lunch (thanks chef for the yummy chicken and gorgeous salad) and cold drinks where we share the after feelings together. On top you can return to this experience in personally edited video and photos taken during the trip. Thanks to all team specially to OG, Liberty and Tambu! We will remember forever!
