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.

Expect to get wet and have a great ride. We flipped our raft, but the safety kayaks were right there to rescue the 'swimmers'. Generally well organized and raft guide was excellent. Good excitement for the money spent. Somewhat demanding as you have to hike down a rocky trail to get to the river. The trip back up is much easier as there is a cable car to hoist you back to the gorge top.

We did the rafting from 8 - 25 : a great experience which I would recommend to anyone. Thanks to Potato and the crew for making it such a great day (nice to see Potato still there after all these years) - all very professional but still with a sense of fun and adventure and great company. The photos and video are fantastic memories. One tip - if you are offered the chance to swim down one of the rapids (no 24) just go for it. Thinking about the four day trip next .........

We used Bundu Adventures to do a full day of white water rafting on 10 August and we had the most amazing day. Our river guide, Spud, or Potato as he is known has been rafting since 1998 and knew the river intimately. He told us exactly what to do and when and we tacked each rapid like pros even though most people on our boat had never rafted. The first 10 rapids are definitely the most exciting so if you are pressed for time you should do the half day morning tour. You do then need to climb out of the gorge yourself and it is very high and very steep. Rafting is tiring and I did not envy those in the other boat who stopped after rapid 10. If you do the full day you catch a cable car back up. I cannot recommend this experience or this particular guide or this company enough. It was the most amazing day filled with rafting, jumping off high rocks into the water (voluntary) and swimming though some of the gentle rapids (also voluntary). 5 stars for a phenomenal day out. The full day is so worth the time and money.

Thanks for the review!
Spending a day in the beautiful Batoka Gorge and rafting some of the best rapids this planet has to offer still is one of the best adventures you can do!

We haven't done much white water rafting before so I was slightly concerned about rafting the largest commercial rapids available in the world during a low water time (means the rapids are at their largest) but I am so glad we did. We were paired with another equally inexperienced couple. Our guide more than made up for our lack of knowledge and made the day safe and enjoyable. We paid to have a picture CD and the guy that took the photos more than earned his pay! He kayaked ahead climbed rocks and found all sorts of vantage points to take some extreme photographs of us. This turned out to be one of the highlights of an already pretty incredible trip. If you have an adrenaline seeking side this is certainly the trip for you. We saw several other companies out on the river, but we flipped over less often, and over all I liked our guide's style better. We only did the 1st half of the river. It would have been pretty fun to keep going but physically the 1st half was pretty challenging so I was good with being finished when we were. There was a crazy climb up the cliffs at the end to lunch (your guides will make this with kayaks on their heads). Lunch was nothing special, but you are paying for the river not the food.

Thank you for your positive review!
We train our guides to make sure rafting is fun, safe and a memorable experience. Our guides also adapt to the guests that we have on any particular day: if we have very nervous guests, the guides will run the rapids in a way to absolutely avoid any unpleasant experiences. There are different ways to run a rapid. We always choose the line that is safe; does not give our guests a bad experience, but will still give you a good impression of the incredible power of the 'Mighty Zambezi River".
This is how the Zambezi should be run anyway if you do commercial white water rafting for the general public.

Hi my family decided that we would do the rafting with these guys while visiting Vic Falls, the thought was that we would like to be on the water not just view it. Boy did we not only get on but in the water they made it so much fun we had the opportunity to float down with the water experience high wall jumping and even managed a tip which was exhilarating. They had loads of safety people in small canoes with us. The team are very professional but make it so much fun if you get a chance and like this type of thing go with this team.
