White water rafting: Lower Moemba Waterfalls

We rise as the sun illuminates the towering walls above, with all the equipment once more stowed securely for the voyage down stream, we cast off into a world of exhilarating action and scenes of remarkable beauty. It is a hard working evening with two portaging around the Moemba Falls.

Day 4

The Ghost Rider: The greatest roller coster wave

The Ghost Rider: The greatest roller coster wave

We will have a relaxed morning downstream the towering waves of Ghost rider, the biggest commercially run-able roller coaster wave train in the World. In the original exploratory trip on the Zambezi one of the rafters opted not to run the rapid and pushed his empty boat off into the current. The sight of the empty raft successfully running the rapid in the twilight (after two others had flipped) inspired him to name the rapid Ghost rider. After surviving the Ghost rider rapid it will be the time to open our cooler boxes full of beers and start drinking as we will be drifting down small rapids. We get to camp at about 16:00 after traveling about 20 km.

Day 5

Bismack Territory & Fish Eagles Nest

Bismack Territory & Fish Eagles Nest

There is no rush on this day and after breakfast, we paddle past a set of small rapids before negotiating a more technical rapid named Asleep At The Wheel and then drift into camp! After departing camp we drift past Fish Eagle's nests, negotiate rapids namely Wave Train, Jay Bay (similar to Jeffrey's Bay in South Africa - a popular surfing place), Bismark's Territory, (home to a particularly large crocodile named Bismark!) and Smugglers Camp. This is the biggest fisherman's village encountered during the 6 day trip and the villagers are happy to show us around, giving us a glimpse at an astonishingly uncomplicated and simple lifestyle totally free from the modern urban world we left behind some days ago.
