Africa holds some fantastic rivers for adventure seekers to try a bit of white water rafting. Safari companies specialise in this sport to ensure safety of guests. Whether it be the Ash River in South Africa, Zambezi River in Zambia or the Nile in Uganda, Africa waterways will provide an action packed experience from grade III to IV.
While visiting one of the most spectacular destinations in the world, the Victoria Falls, make sure that you take some time to add some adventure thrills to your African experience. A half or full day white water safari on the Zambezi will give you a “Grade 5″ memory to take home. To do this there is a fairly steep walk into and out of the Batoka Gorge as well as the rafting activity itself so ensure that you are reasonably fit.
East Africa holds a fabulous mix of white water rafting experiences like scenic rivers, amazing rapids, massive gorges in a unique wilderness setting. The Mathioya, Athi and Tana River in Kenya offer a thrilling white water safari experience.
If you have time between the rapids to look, the countryside is spectacular on a white water rafting safari in South Africa. The Tugela River which is only runnable in summer offers some of the biggest wild water experiences while the Gauteng region, with the Crocodile River and the Vaal River, near Johannesburg offers very gentle or not so gentle rafting depending on the water level.
Oops Ive changed my mind about this white water safari adventure! Having fun on the Zambezi.
