Victoria Falls River Boarding

Originally started as a means of rescue....

Originally started as a means of rescue, it is the latest innovation in adrenalin sports. Like rafting but without the raft, river boarding is a three-dimensional white water experience.

Swim the Middle Zambezi River rapids and surf the waves, armed with nothing more than an oversized body board, wetsuit and flippers. This is the most fun you can have on your stomach!

Trips combine rafting and river boarding, so that you can safely navigate the flat water sections and the few rapids that are considered unsafe for river boarders.

Clients MUST be fit, healthy and good swimmers and able to understand and speak English for safety reason. Minimum age is 15 years old, there is no maximum.

Half Day Rafting and River Boarding Combination.... combines the best of rafting with the challenge of spectacular river boarding. This product runs during LOW water and only for a limited period only during High water. The trip commences at rapid number 11 and finishes at rapid number 21.

Full Day River Boarding and Rafting Combination... runs during LOW water season only. Not all rapids are suitable for river boarding so the trip offers both rafting and river boarding in a full day excursion from rapids 1 to 21 depending on the water level and where the best surfing spots are at the time.

Overnight options are available on request.

Good Afternoon Boo,
Just wanted to let you know that we are now back in Swaziland and had an incredibly fun time enjoying Victoria Falls! All the activities lived up to the hype and I would like to thank you for all your help in organising a busy but full holiday for us! Everything went smoothly from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Also wondering where you prefer to have your reviews written?
Thanks again!
All the best

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
