Rafting on the Zambezi (Movies)

The Zambezi is one of the greatets challenges for rafters. Having rafted in New Zealand on a river with grade 3 and one Flipping the Raft on the Zambezi grade 4 rapid I was ready for the challenge.

Well, this was something different. Flipping the raft twice was not my idea of fun. The first time was not too bad, but the second on Rapid No.7 left me out of breath. Trying to get your head above water, seeing the raft above seperating you and the fresh air is not something I want to relive. Also the strong current dragging you under does not help. I also concluded that Zambezi Beer does taste better than the Zambezi itself.

I survived the mighty Zambezi and it did result in some nice videos and photos. Enjoy!
