Run the Rapids of Africa

It is said that no man ever steps into the same river twice, as he is not the same man and its not the same river. Rivers across Southern Africa are steeped in folk lore - One being the Nyami Nyami - The Tonga river God, who protects those wearing his token.

There is something that soothes the soul when being sitting near a river or dam. In South Africa we have some amazing rivers - the most famous of all being the great Orange river, the Limpopo river and the other the Vaal. These rivers combined make up a total length of over 5,070 kms. Our most infamous river has to be the Duzi, which hosts annually the Duzi Canoe marathon.

Our largest Dams consist of the the Gariep, Vaal and Blomhof dam, but probably our most famous is the Sterkfontein know for producing outstanding Yellow fish traditionally tackled on Fly and the Join Dam which is the only Dam within South Africa where you can catch the ferocious Tiger Fish.

Aside from the massive dams and rivers, South Africa is well know for its natural fresh water resources from beautiful estuaries to fresh mountain streams thats support a myriad off bird and animals species.

We love our freshwater destinations, so whether you are an avid fisherman, Canoe enthusiast, hiker or just a nature lover, we believe you will find some amazing places and adventures to suite you.
