White-water Raft on the Zambezi River

The mighty Zambezi River, having plummeted down into the gorge at Victoria Falls, becomes a foaming mass of turbulent rapids that serve as the highway for white-water rafters.

Rafting on the Zambezi is the Wildest One Day Run in the World, added to its appeal is that it is beneath one of the Seven Wonders of the World. If you don't do it you'll regret it as soon as you leave!
