What we do
Adventure! We take you just that little bit out of your comfort zone and into a place where you will connect with nature, your friends and family and, most importantly, with yourself…
The Orange River Gorge offers remote wilderness rafting in the Northern Cape, while the Thunder Alley section near Hopetown is central and family friendly. The Doring River in the Cederberg is all about whitewater action and wild camping a few hours drive from Cape Town. The Cape Columbine Kayak Trail - 2 days and 1 night on the wild west coast.
Bite sized outdoor experiences in and around Cape Town give you a taste of adventure. Sea Kayaking in Langebaan or around Cape Town, Coasteering, in Simons's Town, summer-time tubing on the Palmiet River in the Kogelberg or thrilling whitewater rafting in the winter or lazy days flatwater rafting on theBreede River near Worcester.
APA, IRF and NQF accredited training and assessments for paddling guides. Whether you are looking for a gap year, vacation job or a career in adventure, our training courses and industry relevant advice will get you started.
