This rafting trip was an incredible adventure, but definitely not for the feint of heart! We had a really awesome guide who always made sure we were safe even though our boat flipped over...twice! It was incredibly hot and my husband got some extreme sun burn so make sure to lather up really well, especially your legs. It was the... More

What an awesome experience. Went during high water season, it was a great combination of challenging rafting in an incredibly beautiful gorge. Will say the views here are better than the Falls itself. Went with MD who is the best ever-- could not recommend going with his raft more. Intense rafting, but you always feel safe and enjoy your time.

Wonderful, i am glad you enjoyed the tour we did together on the river. As Shockwave we don't just offer whitewater rafting but also that hiking and swimming under some falls which was my favorite on that day. Thank you for your support More

Booked many adventures through Shockwave, and had a great experience. They were flexible when our plans changed, responsive, and easy to work with. For the rafting trip, we experienced a bad flip on rapid 16 and the guides dealt with it more than adequately and professionally. I would highly recommend.

Not that we did not enjoy the stunning views of the Victoria Falls, but the best part of our stay there was definitely the white water rafting trip in the challenging rapids of the Zambezi river. Shockwave provided us with a very professional crew and an ideal boat. After loosing all our pictures while traveling on Shockwave was very helpful... More

So we decided to book with this company because the reviews were good on TripAdvisor. And We loved it ! Very nice people ! Silent and Snake are the best for this activity ! They even offered Soda for free (as much as we wanted) and at the end they gave us some reeeally nice food (chicken BBQ rice homemade).... More
