Full description
Check in at the base camp to pick up your wetsuits, harnesses, life jackets and helmets. Once the group is ready, leave base camp for a short drive to the start of your canyon adventure. First, start your ropes course with a gentle 25-meter abseil into the canyon. Then, kick off with your first jump into the river followed by a short swim. Next, if you choose, try your hand at some cliff jumping. For this part of the activity, the highest jump is around of about 7 meters, and lowest 1 meter above the water level, so there are many options if your nerves are getting the better of you. Continue swimming and hiking down the river to The Rush, a waterfall abseil, and seasonally a controlled zip-line over the waterfall. Carry on swimming and hiking down the river until your next adventure, a 55-meter zip-line over a waterfall and into the river below. On completion of the trip, you will be collected from the pick-up point and transported back to the base camp for a nice hot shower, and to collect your pictures of the canyon trip.

That was amazing! One of the best tours I have ever made. Jumping from cliffs, swimming through the narrow river, climbing down to the river... everything was just awesome. A true „once in a lifetime“ experience. You’ll have to be a bit of an adventurous person, but this tour was truly outstanding!

I like the place and view. The Guides were friendly and kindly. If I will come to again to South Africa, I’ll visit this place again.
