Boost your adrenaline levels by abseiling down the Batoka Gorge in Zambia. The rapids of the Zambezi, below the Victoria Falls, offer some of the finest and most exciting rafting waters in the world. The best months are between August and November, when the rapids are at their best. However, both high water and low water rafting are available at other times of the year. Trips start at the Boiling Pot, just below the Falls, and then wind through the spectacular gorges with as many as 21 major rapids.
