VAAL, ORANGE & TUGELA Why struggle to paddle yourself in rapids when you can bring the family and enjoy an exciting trip with a guide on board the raft with you? Run the river in expert hands, wield a paddle yourself, and show the kids how nature in the raw is fun! Ages 6 to 75. Bring granny too!

We do tubing! (with rafting)

The river’s up and the sun’s shining! Come tubing! All our rafting trips include some tubing on easy rapids. And you can choose your raft – either a guided 4-6 seater or paddle-yourself croc. We never take large groups (some operators put 50 boats on the water – how gross is that?) and we always make sure the guides look after you personally. Our guides are qualified and legally registered, and we’ve been in business since 1982: doesn’t that tell you something? Come with the real pros!

2017-8 SEASON

FIRST TRIP OF THE SEASON. Yep, the Vaal River is flowing nicely, with the Vaal Dam at 92% we’re bound to get lots of water before the summer rains start. So here’s to our guides and the rafting season to come! The first trip was a blast! Contact us to join on any holiday or weekend. If you are a family, friends or corporate group, we’ll go anytime – and you can add a festive braai.
