Boarding the Zambezi! Feeling better than we deserved. We cooked up a big breakfast and heading off nervously for boarding. After driving down the river and a quick briefing, we had to descend 80 metres into the gorge. Rapid 11 was a baptism of fire boarding into (and missing) a fierce tube and getting pummelled and dunked. It was great fun getting thrown about and mastering the boarding through grand gorges. Some big rapids were rafted - providing good rest! After tough climb out we got a good feed and couple of deserved beers. Enjoyed drinks and yarns at our cottage before drinks at Explorers. Bit of an anti-climax after our big day of action.
