Overview
More
Instead of immediately embarking on that arduous climb at the end of an amazing day of rafting adventure from rapids #1 to #21, seize the opportunity to camp overnight in the depths of the gorge on one of the pristine riverside beaches used exclusively for Shearwater clients. Enjoy complete peace and serenity as the light fades and the starry African blanket is revealed. Raft again next day.

I booked a transfer from Kasane to Victoria Falls with one of the Shearwater workers, Jubane. On hindsight, I should have been turned off by the fact that Shearwater wanted to be paid in advance. I paid an international payment through my bank. I waited...More
