Riverboarding On the Zambezi - (Half Day)

Livingstone, Zambia

Activity Description

The high flow of water of the Zambezi favours the creation of waves that can be surfed on a bodyboard. Surf fantastic waves and run some of the best rapids on the planet holding only onto a bodyboard. Power yourself through the raging white water equipped only with a pair of fins and a bodyboard. The trip runs alongside the Low Water Half Day Rafting trip.
For safety reasons, bodyboarders go on the rafts for the technically difficult rapids, like rapid #4 and #7. Impressive rapids like the grade five ‘Stairway to Heaven’, ‘Midnight Dinner’ and many more will be run on your bodyboard.
