Video: The Time I went Jet Boating in Zambia

I’m as into adrenaline rushes as they come.  The fact that I had never been jet boating before arriving in Livingstone had nothing to do with the will to do it, and everything to do with the fact that I just hadn’t been able to afford to do it before.  At Iguazu Falls, I had to opt out of the jet boat trip under the falls simply because I couldn’t afford it.  I’d be lying if I didn’t look down on those boats with envy when I was there.

However, I was stoked when Jet Extreme in Livingstone offered to take me out on the Zambezi River.  The trip was some seriously insane fun, and actually much more intense than I imagined.  The boat flies down the river at top speeds and then the driver can whip it to a turning stop on a dime.  We cruised over some of the rapids that the rafters go down on the Zambezi, and cut along some spectacular scenery.  I was drenched by the end of the trip, but every inch of my smile was on full display.  It really was an amazing time and a trip I highly recommend if you’re ever in Livingstone, Zambia.
