Zambezi Challenge

Take on the adventure of a lifetime

Rafting on the Zambezi is an adrenaline filled event where you will take on over 21 rapids, with an experienced guide. Some of the rapids on the Zambezi are the biggest and toughest in the world. Does this sound like a challenge for you? Whether you are an individual looking to join a group of like-minded challengers or you have a group of friends or colleagues already in mind contact us today!

Our Zambezi Challenge is a four day adventure where you will spend three days rafting and battling the 21 rapids. Once your adventure on the river is complete you will have the opportunity to visit some inspirational women that MicroLoan helps and see first-hand the difference you are making.

After the main part of the trip there will be the opportunity to visit Victoria Falls and also experience a game drive in Botswana.

Just a few weeks ago, I was in Africa with ten inspiring women, experiencing the most surreal, frightening and exhilarating moments in my (almost) fifty years... Whilst everyone was doing the event for different reasons – some love the activity and adrenaline-fuelled high you get from doing something a bit dangerous, others were really excited about going out to the villages to meet the groups of women that MicroLoan supports – everyone was doing it to raise money for this fantastic cause. I’m so thankful to have been part of this challenge - my eyes are filling up.
