|The trip will be led by an experienced Gene17kayaking appointed trip leader. In selecting suitable leaders, we not only look to ensure that they have the relevant qualifications but we also ensure that they have an excellent track record of white water paddling from around the world. Whilst qualifications and experience are essential requirements, we also make sure that our leaders have the right temperament to lead a trip group comprised of individuals who have a range of previous experience and expectations. The leader is a vital contributor to the enjoyment and well-being of the trip members and he or she will be there to deal with any unexpected problems. To that end, we aim to provide a leader who will make the trip both successful and enjoyable throughout.
Our leaders hold current wilderness first aid certificates and have experience of dealing with remote river related medical conditions.
We will take a maximum of 6 paddlers on each trip, although the number may well be less than this. With every 3 paddlers we have on the trip, we’ll have a highly experienced Gene17kayaking Teacher/Guide.
|Zambezi Adventure takes place on Class III/IV whitewater.
The Zambezi Adventure is suitable for experienced paddlers who are able to paddle for 4 – 6 hours in a day on Class III/IV. Generally the river is accessible by foot and is far road access, and there will be some exposed terrain. This trip begins on an easier section of whitewater, but will soon reflect conditions expected at the grade. Participants should therefore expect to be in a river environment during for sometimes extended periods of time.
The Zambezi trip is aimed at intermediate and advanced white water paddlers who have a roll, and who are looking for an adventurous kayaking and cultural experience on one of the best white water rivers in the world.
