Yet another option for white-water enthusiasts is tandem kayaking in the gorge in Topolino Duo Kayaks. Trips are run by Safari Par Excellence, in conjunction with their rafting trips for logistics and safety. A qualified kayaker-guide sits in the back, piloting and manoeuvring the kayak through rapids, while you sit in front and assist with paddle power. Kayaking experience is not necessary, but you should be a confident swimmer. Kayaks, smaller and lighter than rafts, may capsize in bigger rapids. Although your guide will attempt to right it by executing an 'Eskimo roll', failing this be prepared to swim the rest of the rapid (together with your guide). For experienced kayakers, Kayak-the-Zambezi in Livingstone offers one-day trips below the Falls and fully-outfitted multi-day expeditions by special arrangement.
