Join expert guides for a half day adventure rafting down the Vaal River to the famous Gatsien rapid!
- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
Take on the mighty Vaal River during this exciting rafting experience, spending five hours traversing the water under the instruction of APA river guides. This experience is great for individuals and groups alike, and yes - you will get wet!
Starting in the town of Parys on the bank of the Vaal, your guides will talk you through the plan for the day and get you kitted out in flotation gear, before heading to the water to begin the trip. No rafting experience is necessary so don't worry if you've never paddled before, but there are some rapids that will give you quite a rush! Throughout the day you'll leisurely raft on your inflatable crocs, taking in the Free State landscape on one side and the North West province on the other. The trip finishes at the small but often powerful Gatsien rapid - so don't expect to emerge dry!
The Half Day Vaal River Rafting Experience is great fun for groups of friends, but also makes a unique gift for adrenaline junkies and adventurers. Try it this summer and see if you can conquer the rapids!
