Prepare for hours of fun with this adrenaline-pumping river rafting experience in KwaZulu-Natal, complete with zip-lining and rock jumping to finish! Ride the rapids through the Mkomazi Valley under the guidance of expert instructors - the perfect day out to share with friends.
The experience starts at an adventure centre around 22km west of Richmond, where guests will receive a safety briefing, get kitted out in life jackets and helmets, and watch a paddling demonstration. The friendly instructors will then drive the group 6km up the river for some final paddling exercises - then you're off! With no fewer than ten class 2-3 rapids on the way, you're guaranteed a wet and wild adventure as you traverse the flowing water whilst taking in the stunning scenery around you. After a quick snack break you'll continue on for another 3km of rafting, taking on the notorious Mkomazi River Number 1 Rapid... and before you know it, you're back at the adventure centre where you can enjoy rock jumping and zip-lining, with refreshments and showers available.
