The Zambezi rapids are no mere good ride. The trip down Livingstonís river is commonly considered the best whitewater rafting on the planet. Every year, around fifty thousand people strap on a helmet and cling to their paddle as they shoot the most exciting rapids around. Adventurers can float the Zambezi for over a week, camping on remote sandy beaches and glimpsing incredible wildlife along the shores. The stretch just south of the falls contains some of the most notorious rapids in the rafting world, including the Stairway to Heaven, Devilís Toilet Bowl, and Oblivion rapids. Although the rapids are Class V, no previous rafting experience is required given that you make the trip in Zambiawith a qualified guide.
