A week adventure that included river rafting down the Zambezi river and safari in Botswana. Philani is very easy, accommodating and flexible. We were a group of 5 women in our 50's and 60's. The hike down the canyon to the river was somewhat challenging. The river rafting was my favorite part. Class 5 rapids- very fun. We preferred the... More

We have taken part in a 2.5 day trip on the Zambezi River in November 2016. It was the best trip ever. The scenery, the river and the rapids are of course amazing. But the team at Shockwave is the same. We had great guides with whom we felt always safe. The camera guy by the name of Snake, was... More

Everything was extremely well organized, always on time and they were flexible with scheduling changes. I would like to send... More

The white water Zambezi rafting was a hec of finale for the family adventures in Africa... the whole family - me, my wife and our four kids (6,10,12,16) loved every bit of it.

You will not find another experience like the one I found with Shockwaves. I started communicating with Phil and his staff about a month before my trip. They answered all my questions and replied back promptly to all emails. I did the half-a-day rafting only since I booked a tour of the falls with them for the same day. I... More
