Victoria Falls River Boarding

Originally started as a means of rescue....

NOTE: Riverboarding is no longer available from either side of the river. Please see other activities that are offered in Victoria Falls.

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.

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
