What people are saying about Victoria Falls Town

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 :)

Enock and his whole team at Maano Adventures were incredible. They are an experienced team that put safety first at all times, but also put a lot of effort in to make everything fun for our group. Fully recommend this to anyone thinking about it!
