These unique experiences allow you to experience roaring rapids in the midst of narrow canyons and broad valleys with white sandy beaches. Camp is set up on a beach and hearty dinners are enjoyed around roaring campfires. The guides take you through the rapids on self-supported expeditions and explain the geology and fascinating history of the area. Between September and November rafting is at its best with lots of grade 4 and 5 rapids.
These rafting adventures are between two and five days long, and the journey takes you through the Songwe and Batoka gorges. Sheer rock walls arise hundreds of meters above the river. It is here where one may catch a glimpse of the threatened Taita falcon as its soars above you. On the longer journeys basalt rocks give way to grassy banks and the grunts of vocal hippopotamus carry across the water. Rapids are interspersed with calm stretches of crystal clear water where you can take a relaxing swim and watch the spectacular gorges, thick with vegetation.
If you want to escape on a “real holiday” where there are no phones, computers or stress, this is perfect for you.
