Wild Water Rafting… A great way to experience nature in her unspoiled beauty… Experienced guides are on hand to ensure a safe and enjoyable trip. Rafting operates all year round, depending on water levels. Booking is essential.
Awaken the adventurer in you, as you dip your oars for a trip down the Umzimkhulu River. The experience begins at Oribi Gorge Hotel at 08h00, with an introduction to your guide and trip leader, followed by a safety briefing. You will then be driven down a 4×4 trail to the “put-in point” on the Umzimkhulu River (15 mins). After braving the rapids (grades 2 to 4, depending on the river conditions) you will be collected and returned to the Hotel. The trip takes 2 to 4 hours (On-water time), depending on the river level. The rate includes refreshments (juice/water & chocolate) on the river. Lunch can be ordered from the sumptuous a la Carte menu, back at the Hotel. Braai and Buffet menus are available for groups – this can be arranged with the Hotel.
