River Rafting is by far one of the most popular adventure sports in South Africa. Internationally it draws in many tourists looking to conquer the white waters of any African river.
Depending on the river and its conditions, river rafting can be done in a fibreglass canoe or an inflatable raft. The inflatable raft is most common and consists of a multi layered PVC raft that is inflated. Each occupant can be armed with a double bladed paddle which is used to propel the raft forward and keep it balanced over torrents.
