Charity challenges just don’t get much more extreme than this! Water sport enthusiasts consider The Zambezi one of the BIGGEST white-water rivers in the world!

Is this challenge right for me?
ABSOLUTELY!! This Challenge is suitable for people of all ages (minimum 17 years old). The Zambezi River is classed as a Grade 4 and Grade 5 river, meaning that is one of the biggest white-water destinations in the World. Participants should feel confident of their ability to swim in moving water. This trip has been designed to be challenging, but achievable by anyone as long as you train before hand. Remember, you are rafting for 4 consecutive days and in very hot temperatures, sometimes over 40°C – the fitter you are the more you will enjoy this Challenge. There are some points where we will need to porter our gear around some of the un-runable rapids, so you will need to help with carrying equipment. Even though this is a rafting Challenge, participants do still need to have a reasonable levels of fitness as you will be doing much more than just ‘sitting down’ all day!
