River Rafting and Canoeing

from R0.00

South Africa is a Mecca for river rafting and canoeing.  Choose a lazy paddle down the river or the more challenging wild water – being one with nature, we guarantee you won’t want this experience to end. Minimum numbers apply for most river rafting and canoeing trips.

Orange River Rafting

Relaxing days on the river followed by nights of incredible fun around the campfire, make up this great river trip. With grade 2 rapids, it makes the Orange River a suitable canoe trip for the whole family.

Half Day River Trip

The day commences with a transfer to our launch point a few kilometres up stream. Here you are met by your guide who will give a safety speech. Our half days’ paddle down the majestic Orange River ends at base camp. A tranquil and peaceful time, paddling through the “green belt”. There are no crocodiles, but Birds, Water Monitors and much more which the guides will gladly share some interesting information on. Throw a wave at the locals from both Namibia and South Africa as they sit on the banks and fish. Sit back in your boat and float gently with the current as you realise this is one of the many “Heavens on Earth.”

Full Day River Trip

Our full day trip is a copycat of the Half Day trip, except we launch further upstream from the camp, thus allowing a longer time on the river. About halfway through the trip, the guide will find a suitable bank for you to have lunch. The inflatable boat (croc), turned upside down, provides a fantastic table from which to serve lunch, consisting of a mixture of salads, pies and cold drink. After lying on the beach and soaking in the rays of the African sun, we launch again to complete the second half of the days’ paddle, ending at the campsite.

Overnighter River Trip

Our Overnighter starts in the morning at Fiddlers Creek base camp. After a pre-launch introduction and safety speech, the Orange River experience commences. The day is spent paddling through some of the world’s most beautiful desert scenery, the green banks of the Orange River , contrasting against barren looming mountain ranges of the Richtersveld. Once lunch has been served, the afternoon is spent paddling and drifting down the river before finding an suitable spot to set up camp on the bank. Dinner is prepared over an open fire and the evening is spent under the twinkling heavens of the Southern Hemisphere. The following morning after a hearty breakfast, we are met by our 4×4 team who will take us back to base camp to end our Overnighter.

Weekender (At Camp) 

Meet at Fiddlers Creek Campsite for the first night at camp where we have dinner prepared for you.  After a big breakfast we are transported to the start point about 14kms upstream from Fiddlers Creek. We spend the day paddling down the river with lunch served on the banks of the river. Throughout the day we can stop to take photos, swim or nappy run. In the afternoon we arrive back at Fiddlers Creek campsite where we have dinner and spend the night.  Again, after breakfast we put in at the camp and paddle down stream enjoying another relaxing day. At the end transport will be waiting to take us back to the camp from where you set out on your journey home.

Weekender (In Bush)

Same as above, except initial launch is from camp, and overnight on the banks of the river

4 Day – 5 night

Please arrive the night before the trip begins with dinner between 20h00 and 22h00.  Pre trip briefing on the trip, boat allocation, packing instruction and an in-depth safety speech by your lead guide. After breakfast and packing canoes we get into the river to begin our four day river adventure. A slow paddle to the lunch spot gets everyone comfortable with the canoes. We set camp out in the open, under the stars on the bank of the river, for the first evening. On the river we provide toilet facilities.  Both full days of paddling, swimming and walks – each night camping under the stars at different sites further down the stream.  Early start & breakfast takes us to the take out point at Ausenkhers or Sjambok. Transport back to camp and overnight. After coffee and rusks, the following morning, you set out on your journey home.

Wine Route Adventure – Breede River Canoeing

Close to Worcester through the heart of the wine lands, the Breede River winds its way through the Boland. This one-day canoe trip is a great way to experience the beauty of this area.

Breede River Canoeing

2 and 3-day canoeing trips on the Breede River are a great way to get together for a team build or just enjoy with a group of friends. As the river flows slowly towards the sea, it offers a few exciting challenges through some rapids along the way.

Cunene River Adventures – River Rafting

This 11-day excursion starts and ends in Windhoek in Namibia. The Cunene River is wild and challenging and the adventure takes us down a remote section of the river forming the border between Namibia and Angola. For the real river enthusiast, this journey is a must.

Doring River Rafting

A wild river during the Western Cape winter months, situated in the heart of the Cedarberg, it offers an exciting but technical ride down the rapids, graded up to level 4 in the peak of the season.

Palmiet River

This is a fun river to navigate on either tubes or crocs.  Being in a winter rainfall area, the best water will be during the winter months, but when the levels are lower, we use the tubes for an exciting ride down the river through this incredibly scenic area, with Castle Rock towering over the gushing waters.
