Full day Trip:

A day trip which consists of roughly 17 kilometers with a relaxing lunch break in between. The day starts off with coffee and a short briefing about the day’s route. A nine kilometer stretch in the morning is followed by a relaxing lunch on the River. Then it is back to the paddles for the afternoon stretch which is approximately eight kilometers and is packed with all the anticipation and excitement that you could hope for. All trips are led by qualified, experienced guides.

Half-day river rafting:
Duration: 3 Hours

Price from ZAR 350.00

This is done either in the morning or afternoon. Assemble on the deck at Khamkirri for your safety brief, then set off 9 km’s upstream to Paarden Island where the fun begin. This wonderful trip ends at the Khamkirri base camp. Although there is a variety of exciting rapids along the way, we are able to offer this option for groups including children from age 5 upwards on these stretches when the river is at its normal level. This is therefore a great family excursion.

Nature Paddle:
This option is for the less adventurous rafter
. This is a 3km nature paddle with fast flowing water and a couple of small rapids to provide a glimpse of what white water rafting offers. This is a great way to just relax and enjoy the river bird life and our beautiful surroundings. This is one of the few paddle sections that you can find the likes of Kudu, Eland and Gemsbok on the river’s edge while you paddle past.

 

Rafting experience including one night camping along the river:
This option includes a 15 km stretch of river followed by a night spent camping at the river’s edge.

This is ideal for travelers who are just passing through and do not have much time. This option is a very popular choice for Overlanders exploring as much as possible of Africa.
