6th Zambezi International Regatta




Zambezi International Regatta

 It’s back! Are you ready to race with Crocodiles, Hippos, Elephants and some enthusiastic young athletes?

Racing on the first World Championship Course in Africa, in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. The 6th Zambezi International Regatta boasts of once having the most expensive trophy in sporting history. The regatta takes place on the Mighty Zambezi River, a few kilometers upstream of the mighty Victoria Falls (Mosi-oa-Tunya). This really is the smoke that thunders.

The Zambezi will provide the thunder – but athletes have to bring the lighting. Lightning fast catches anyone?
