White Water Rafting
A major summer activity in South
Africa is white-water rafting. The most exciting white water rafting
time of the year in South
Africa is between November and May. The Tugela river offers perhaps
the most spectacular white water rafting opportunities that exists in South
Africa. South Africa is one of the few destinations in the world that can
boast clean rivers, lakes and dams. So, with this in mind, it is obvious
that white water rafting, river rafting and canoeing breaks are a very
popular way of enjoying the outdoors for both local and international visitors.
Individuals and groups alike can enjoy a river 'getaway' ranging from one
to five days.
A great way to enjoy a team-building weekend with fellow
work colleagues, or just a quiet relaxing break with friends. The Tugela
river offers the best one day white water rafting in the world!
There is however a number of safety aspects to take into
account when sourcing the best company to book with. You must be sure that
the guides are experienced - both on and off the water; that the company
has the necessary medical insurances; and of course that they are delivering
what you have been promised. Contact Zingela River Safaris with your requirements,
including the level of adventure you require (i.e. canoeing, white water
rafting) and they will do the rest.
The 30km stretch of the Tugela
River known as the canyon provides some of the most thrilling white
water in South Africa. The South African leg of the Camel White-Water Challenge
took place at Zingela and the venue received rave reviews from participants
A wide choice of river-rafting packages is available - from
half a day to four days on the river. One man Kayaks, two man crocs and eight
man rafts are used on the river, in accordance with water levels and the
Safety is a priority, and all guides are trained by SARA.
No previous rafting experience is necessary.
