Zambezi River Report - Low Water & Touring the Victoria Falls

(Victoria Falls)

Zambezi River levels at Victoria Falls (blue line indicated 2017 levels)

25 September 2017

The Zambezi River water levels have continued to drop since our last report, but have done so faster than usual for this time of the year.

Year after year, we see the the river levels rise and fall, and as we enter the driest hottest part of the year, the Eastern Cataract is already mostly dry. It is at this time of the year that we encourage clients staying in Zambia to make a trip to the Zimbabwean side of the Victoria Falls as this side will have the best views with the Main Falls and other parts still flowing strong.

Below the falls, white-water rafting is at it's best, and if you just want to see the falls from below, the Boiling Pot hike will take you there.

Low Water Rafting - Zimbabwean side Quick facts:
Rapids: #1 to #19
Lunch: Lunch is served at the top of the gorge
Time: 07:30 to 14:00
Duration: 6.5 hrs

Above the Victoria Falls, the Devil's Swim and Livingstone Island tour will continue to operate. Just a reminder that this activity has seen an increase in the number of visitors and slots are filling up fast. Therefore, we strongly advise that you pre-book this activity well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Other Victoria Falls activities are still going as usual.
