VICTORIA FALLS SPECIALS
2.5 and 5 Day Camping and rafting trips
Length of trip: 5 days
As per low water rafting trip and camping below rapid 23, overnight camp.
From hereafter the flat stretches between rapids becomes longer. Your first rapid is ‘Open Season’. We then continue through ‘The Narrows’ and ‘Chimamba’, where we stop for lunch. After lunch we head on down the river to our overnight campsite just beyond upper Mowemba.
After portaging lower Mowemba we continue along to the Dam site where we do our third and final portage. After this we move on to our campsite located downstream on a beach in the gorge.
Today we raft through rapids ‘Ghost Rider’ and ‘Deep Throat’. After our lunch stop at ‘Deep Throat’ we go through ‘Narrows 2’ and numerous small unnamed rapids before we arrive at our campsite.
We continue on navigating through ‘Asleep at the Wheel’, ‘Fish Eagle’s Delight’ and on to our take out point at Matetsi where we are transported back to the Falls.

Set departure dates for 2012 are as follows for 2.5 & 5 day trips:
10 and 24 September
8 and 22 October
5 and 19 November
3 and 17 December
We can run a trip on any other requested dates for groups or for minumum of 4 people
So set departure dates are regardless of numbers and if we get to 20 pax we will close these dates, lets publish these on all the websites, thanks.
These dates are in line with the low water season. These dates are traditionally from mid August until early January, and only change due to exceptional circumstances such as the last season where the river was closed for 4 months!!! Normally it is a maximum of 1 month. This year we only opened the low water season in September so to try and keep up to date we have adjusted our dates of set departures accordingly.
