I had a great time with Enoch and his team on our my full day trip on the Zambezi river. I have never tried white water rafting before, and the guys took safety and security seriously as we started with a safety briefing and got us all geared up properly. The team was friendly and funny, took us through the 25 thrilling rapids and gave us a good lunch afterwards. Tip: bring a set of dry clothes the guys can keep for you, make sure to eat a good breakfast and wear/bring sunscreen. The full day is full on, and I would say you need some fitness level to enjoy it completely. If unsure, join for the half day trip first. I booked this trip because the guys involved are from the local community, so you should do the same! You will not regret it. Lots of action :)
Enoch and his team were outstanding. They made a perfect days rafting for our family group which ranged from 17 - 63. They gave us total confidence that the were competent and that we would be safe. They brought us through 21 rapids in our full day tour which was amazing. Enoch was knowledgable shared lots of interesting facts about the river and the wildlife. His whole team was great. It was also great to know that it was a local Zambian company so all of the money is going into the local economy.
This was a fun and exciting adventure with Maano Adventures. We had an excellent guide, with many supporting staff on a secondary raft and kayaks to support us. There were also a photographer and a video cameraman that films the trip. There are no additional costs to the photos and videos. What is great about Maano Adventures is that it is the only local company and the employs people out of the surrounding villages. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
We had a brilliant time; Enoch and his friends took good care of us and we felt very safe. The rapids were very fierce in parts but I always felt safe; even when I ended up in the Zambezi, I was quickly pulled out. The climb out of the gorge at the end was very hard work for two overweight old ladies but we managed it, thanks to the assistance of the young very fit African men! Thanks again for a wonderful experience. Stephanie Stonehouse
The best adventure activity at the Zambezi river! Enock and the team made sure we had a fabulous day with facts about the river and playing games in between the excitement of the rapids. We finished off the best day with a delicious lunch cooked by Mike. If you are looking for a thrilling and unforgettable experience then this is the activity for you.
