River Rafting

It is interesting to note that white-water rafting was one of the earliest forms of transportation. Rafting was not only used for carrying people but also for transferring goods from one place to another. However, river rafting became quite popular as a form of leisure activity in the 1980s. This was also the case in Parys, South Africa.

Being situated on the banks of the Vaal River, we can accommodate up to 200 delegates on the water, accompanied by our well trained and highly qualified guides, experts in the industry. Learn to surf “gat sien”, with quite a variety of day and multi day river rafting trips suitable for every level of expertise and experience.
