Otters Playground

VAAL RIVER
From Otters' Haunt via Big Daddy and Jaws to Rocky Ridge
Class 2+: Exciting fun for everyone
Running towards the first rapid

Running towards the first rapid

This section of the river has deep water most of the way and always has rapids, summer and winter. It is one of the most popular stretches of whitewater in SA, made famous by rapids like Big Daddy and Jaws. Normally we launch from our base at Otters’ Haunt and finish at Rocky Ridge. We may start higher up the river if the flow is good. The beauty of this route is that it suits young and old but is not tame: there are good rapids without a major fear factor.

Surfing the waves at Paradise

We often stop to “play” in the whitewater holes that occur at favourite spots. Between bouts of whitewater you'll be surprised how scenic and peaceful it can be among the islands with plenty of birdlife and occasional otter sightings.
  • If you are looking for a halfday that's not too taxing on your energy, but offers the family or corporate group a fun experience, choose this one.
