From the pick up point at the Avani resort the whole experience has been worth the money. The jet boat was of course exiting and fun, running fast along black stone walls on the rapids of Zambezi, getting really wet from splashes. But even the trip has been fascinating. It takes about an hour drive to get to the gorge... More

A highlight of our trip to Zimbabwe was the boat tour with this company - knowledgable captain who spotted hippos , crocodiles and elephants for us and then got us up close to take photos. It was a clean and sturdy boat with a toilet and free flowing bar plus tasty bar snacks and canapés as the sun set over... More

I went a little while back. I had hoped to go white water rafting, but unfortunately it was not available the day I went, so went on the Jet Boat instead. Pros: Great fun! The boat flies along at high speed. You won't believe the shuddering and vibrations that your bum goes though bumping along. But it is good fun!... More

Tony Pilcher (aka Bottles) is the hands on entreprenur/owner/manager of Jet Extreme. He took us on a wild ride in the waters near Victoria Falls on the Zambezi. He is organised, and very personable. At $95 per person (including transport, a cable car ride, refreshments and safety equipment) it's great value.

This was so wild! I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a thrill. Great views from inside the Batoka Gorge, great staff. The drive to the Jet boat site is also great. You are driven through an authentic African Village and have great views of the beautiful African bush.

The ride was so much fun this is a refreshing ride especially in Victoria Falls. The setting is awesome we explored the islands at the top of the mighty Victoria Falls going through small channels which was fun. The service was fabulous as the drivers explained everything in detail. When you get close to the falls themselves the view from... More
