white-water rafting

White-water rafting


... is an activity in which a group of guests clings to a large inflatable raft, which is paddled by an experienced pilot down a series of river rapids.

The leading location for white-water rafting is at Livingstone, where the rafts start at the foot of the Victoria Falls and run for several miles through a very impressive sheer-sided canyon. Depending on the season these rapids can become pretty extreme.

The second best location is at Jinja in Uganda, at the point where the White Nile leaves Lake Victoria. The rafting conditions here are more constant due to the presence of a large dam immediately upstream. They compare in difficulty with the mid-season conditions on the Zambezi, although the surrounding environment is nowhere near so dramatic.
