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 and organisers.

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 groups abilities.

Safety is a priority, and all guides are trained by SARA. No previous rafting experience is necessary.
