White water rafting in the Drakensberg

White water rafting

Day excursion

White water rafting is sure to be the most exhilarating adventure of your holiday and our grade 3- 5 rapids will get your adrenalin pumping. We make use of various rivers including the famous Tugela river. Our professional guides will start with a safety briefing and spend the first 45 minutes on smaller rapids to allow you to familiarise yourselves with the boats and the water before hitting the bigger rapids. All safety equipment, including helmets and life jackets will be supplied by us. We carry a medical aid kit and cell phone at all times, and strictly follow the guidelines of the African Paddling Association.

The rafters will depart at 9am and return close to 3pm. A light refreshment and transport to and from the river is provided by us.
