3. Rafting The Zambezi River


Beginning over twenty years ago, in 1989, Bio Bio Expeditions co-owners Marc and Laurence worked as full-time guides on the Zambezi River for three seasons, logging more than 300 descents of the mighty Zambezi between them! During those years they forged lifelong friendships and partnerships with many locals – relationships that are integral to how we make our Zambezi guided rafting adventures so incredible.

Bio Bio Expeditions returns to the Zambezi River almost every year. The river flows between Zambia and Zimbabwe in Southern Africa and we have developed all of our itineraries to ensure our guests experience the beauty and magic of the Zambezi in all its facets: the calm Upper section, the wild whitewater of Batoka Gorge, and the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls.

We include wonderful extras: enjoy the talents of traditional singers as they entertain us on our first night in the Zambezi’s Batoka Gorge, and wonderful stories about growing up in Africa told by our local guides around the campfire.

Of course, no trip to Africa is complete without relaxing and rejuvenating in the finest, luxury safari lodges that include plenty of opportunities for breathtaking game viewing.

Follow in the footsteps of Stanley Livingstone and join us at Victoria Falls – CHOOSE ZAMBEZI!
