Zambezi Explorer

Zambezi River Rafting Adventure

A once in a lifetime African adventure!

This beautiful and memorable twelve days will have you braving the epic rapids of the Zambezi River, exploring the game parks of Zimbabwe and Botswana, while getting your much needed rest in the comfort and elegance of safari lodges and camps.

Internationally acclaimed as one of the best locations for white water rafting, the mighty Zambezi, a quintessential African river – immense whitewater while being warm and friendly – meanders from Angola to the Indian ocean. It is best experienced towards the end of the dry season, August through October, where you can witness a variety of animals and game making their way to the riverbank to drink, swim, and frolic in the shallows.

We’ll visit Zimbabwe and Botswana, exploring the many facets of the Zambezi watershed in the region. There is a rich history of game viewing and preservation in this uniquely “veldt” like terrain.

With a highly evolved and protected national park system, the wildlife of Botswana is allowed to thrive and the elephant herds of Botswana and Zimbabwe are among the largest and most protected in Africa.

The opportunities to view game in this area are abundant and, at the same time, you’ll not find yourself overrun by the enthusiastic herds of tourists often found in East Africa.

This experience is truly spectacular. From your first dip into the Devil’s pool overlooking Victoria Falls, to watching elephants roam wild, to the massive rapids of the river, your rich and vibrant Zambezi adventure is sure to provide you with stories and memories to last a lifetime!

Costa Rica Multi Sport

Costa Rica Wildlife Adventure

Explore, relax and get to know the real Costa Rica – a journey to paradise!

Another multi activity adventure that easily makes the bucket list is a journey to one of the most friendly and beautiful little countries in the Western Hemisphere: Costa Rica, or in English, aptly, Rich Coast. Truly paradise!

Eleven wondrous days of travel off the beaten path with world-class rafting on the magical Pacuare River. Through lush tropical rainforests to secluded wilderness lodges and beaches, there’s no better way to explore the unspoiled parts of this precious gem of a nation.

Touching down in the capital, San Jose, we fly directly to world-famous Corcovado National Park and the Cano Island Biological Reserve. Identified by the National Geographic Society as “one of the most biologically intense places on earth”, this area is truly a paradise of tropical wilderness and picture-perfect beaches.

Abundant with spectacular wildlife which includes crocodiles, exotic parrots, toucans, and several species of monkeys, you will enjoy guided hikes by resident naturalists and boat excursions with snorkelling.

Your home for the Corcovado leg will be the spectacular La Paloma Lodge, one of the best regarded eco-lodges in Costa Rica and only a short walk from secluded black-sand beaches and the cool waters of the Agujitas River.

Off to Rafiki Jungle Lodge, inspired by deluxe wildlife lodges of Africa, in the scenic and beautiful Sevegre River Valley. Here, among activities such as hiking with a naturalist, horseback riding, bird and wildlife watching, your first whitewater experience will be a beautiful class 3 paddle down the Savegre River.

This raft should prepare you for the piece de resistance of Costa Rica whitewater rafting: the Pacuare River. Rated one of the top rivers in the world, you’ll enjoy experiencing the rainforest up close, with warm waters, cascading waterfalls, and the spectacularly lush rainforest with its brilliantly coloured plants, animals, and birds – truly a treat for all the senses!

Rest ’n relax at remote eco-lodge, Rios Tropicales, nestled in the rainforest on the banks of the Pacuare River. Here you can appreciate luxury complete with hydro-powered electricity, the model of ecotourism and deluxe accommodations.
