WHAT TO EXPECT – Short Video Clip:
1Hour from Cape Town – A stone trow away from the town of Kleinmond.
The scenery is breath-taking as the mountains tower over you, and the lush green nature reserve stretches as far as the eye can see. The smell of fynbos cloaks around the river, as insects buzz and sound of wildlife echo off the gorges. Tubing is provided during the summer months, while rafting is expected during winter. Professional guides lead you on this adventurous ride of a life time, but bookings are essential. Relax and for a few hours forget about the hustle and bustle of the city.
Kogelberg Nature Reserve a World Heratige Site – is often considered the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom, because of the exceptional quality of its fynbos. The reserve has remained isolated and remarkably unspoilt. Its high mountain peaks, steep kloofs, valleys and several tributaries of the pristine Palmiet River create a sense of remote wilderness. Spending the night in the reserve if you have time is an absolute must. Have a look at the link below.
The trip is 2 -3 hours Depending on the Flow of the River, We do a 4km stretch which consist of 10 Rapids, The Palmiet river is a very high Intensity river against all the other rivers in SA, there is very little Flat water to paddle but lots of White water, and long rolling rapids, If you are a adrenaline junkie, This is definitely the activity for you.
Max people 20, We use 2 man rafts called Croc’s, They take the water very well, in High water we use 5 man rafts called a Nile.
We supply you with 7mm Wet suites and all safety equipment for the trip, please bring towels, dry clothes and close shoes (that is going to get wet, or booties)
NB: We all meet 15min before your booking time at our Kleinmond office, in Harbour rd as you drive down to the harbour in Kleinmond on your right hand side, from there we will depart to the Kogelberg Nature Reserve. Please confirm water levels 2 days prior to your arrival!!
We Like to keep things safe on the river so please ensure that you don’t consume alcohol less than 8 hours before arrival. Alcohol and White Water Rafting does not “mix” your always welcome to consume a few drinks after the trip:-)
