World African Rafting Championships
With earlier efforts of members of Project Raft which blazed the trail for International rafting. World rafting leaders join together and organize the first World Rafting Championships in Africa, on the wild and woolly African whitewaters of the Zambezi River. This became the origins of the Camel White Water Challenge (CWWC) and later the International Rafting Federation (IRF) organization.
The International Rafting Championships have been held on the Zambezi River in 1995, 1996, 1997 and 2001.
It was exciting being involved as one of the judges for the World African Rafting Championships on the wild whitewaters of the Zambezi River. The races began just below the Victoria Falls. You’ll see that they hit a lot of class 4 and 5 rapids on the way down the whitewater, many rafters tossed out of the raft as they hit a wall of water.
Now for the first time you will be able to enjoy the early years of the World African Rafting Championships in these rare whitewater rafting videos on the Zambezi River.
