The Raft Float takes place on the Upper Zambezi River above Victoria Falls and is ideal for groups who want something a little calmer than the extremes of the white water rafting. Each raft comes with oars that the guide uses to navigate the river. However, paddles are provided for those that would like to help out if you wish (not compulsory by any means). Safpar uses state-of-the-art eight person inflatable rafts which are incredibly stable and strong – After all, these are the same type of rafts used to negotiate class 4 and 5 rapids in the gorge below the Victoria Falls.
The Zambezi river above the Victoria Falls changes its nature continuously, from wide open expanses of water to narrow tree lined channels meandering between the myriad of rock and sand islands. Game is abundant throughout your Zambezi River raft float. Species that may be encountered include Hippo, Crocodile, Elephant, Waterbuck, the elusive Cape Clawless Otter and hundreds of bird species.
