Take Note

All trips are totally dependent on water levels and it is important that clients are aware of the seasonal nature of the products:
• High water season: approx. January to July (Rapids#11-#24)
• Low water season - (Peak Season): approx. August to early January(Rapids#1-#21)

The descent into the gorge for rafting is steep and depending on the time of year can be slippery. The pathways are 'rough' and due to the fact it takes place in a World Heritage site, only local materials such as mopane ladders can be used. As a result it is a difficult decent and we suggest clients should wear suitable shoes for such a clamber. Please note that if you do a half day WWR during Low Water whereby you descend from rapid no. 10 pathway, the path is in direct sunlight and more difficult than the path leading to the boiling pot.

NB Clients need not be good swimmers for rafting. Non-swimmers should notify trip leaders during trip briefing.
