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.


Our portfolio includes Indigo Blue Beach House and Baby Blue Beach Cottage right on the beach in Langebaan, as well as Wild Paradise Camp on the banks of the Orange River in Onseepkans, Northern Cape.

Why People Love Our Adventures

We have just returned from our Thunder Alley trip which was expertly lead by Jono and supported by his incredible team of guides: Seamus, Jason and Tyler.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Gravity Adventures for such a superb time on the Orange River. The professional, friendly and entertaining service received by the guides was incredible and beyond the call-of-duty. Our group comprised 11 children (aged 7 to 15) and the guides were particularly good with them; ensuring their safety, patiently dealing with a LOT of questions and participating in much friendly banter. Furthermore, the food was outstanding and exceeded our expectations. These guys are a real asset to the company.

We thoroughly enjoyed the adventure and had a wonderful time with our mate and families, connecting with nature and soaking up the beautiful environment. We will definitely be back.

Thunder Alley: Superb Trip

We did the New Year’s trip at Thunder Alley.

I would like to extend personal thanks to you guys for making sure all the arrangements were spot on. Even more so I would like to thank to Ian, Erin, Jason & Coby for an EXCELLENT time on the river. The professional, courteous, friendly and exciting service received by these 4 gents was super and beyond call-of-duty in my mind. Connecting with nature and people is what makes this trip – and they’re experts at that! I would recommend Gravity and it’s crew to anybody and everybody that is interested in a super family adventure. The emersion in nature was splendid and good food for the soul. The bonding with my family on that river is irreplaceable. The equipment was top-notch and the food was light-years ahead of what we expected … I had to loosen my life jacket straps towards day 3 because of the wholesome and delicious meals received.

Keep up the good work guys… I’m already thinking of coming back for the Gorge, when the river has subsided a bit.

This was the most amazing four day rafting trip. It was very relaxing and the two guides spoilt us rotten. The trip takes you to some very remote places and allows you to totally disconnect with daily life. I can highly recommend the trip and found Gravity Adventures to run a very professional operation. Thanks to Ian and Max for all their hard work to make the trip so special.
