Kayaking or rafting three different one-day stretches of the Tugela River.
Day 1 – Bergville to Spioenkop Dam: This is our flag ship route! Your typical one-day outing and you’re looking at five to six hours on the water. It is surprisingly big, fast, continuous and friendly (rapids from class 1 to 3+). You will be seeing parts of the Tugela few people do, and it is our intention to keep it that way. You will not be paddling on a crowded river!
Day 2 – Skietdrift to N3 Toll Route: This is our second regular one-day paddle, a bit shorter but equally as good and action packed from start to finish. When the Tugela really gets going there is some enormous white water to be encountered. Rapids ranging from class 1 to 5, no sweat. And when you’re done you will be pulling in at the Pig and Plough farm shop for a burger, pizza or a pie!
Day 3 – Cromley Bank to Dippenaars: This is the big one! We’re heading down the first 15km of the Tugela Canyon, which is legendary. It is wild, scenic, rugged and isolated. Rapids like Rocky Horror and Klip Rapid are some the stand outs. Throw in a few waterfalls among them too. Action literally right from the start!
