We customise our educational adventures for primary and secondary schools. Let us know if you have classes for geography, history, life sciences or life skills.
Exciting rafting trips & training on South African rivers: the Vaal, Orange, Tugela & Doring. No experience needed. Pioneers of rafting for 30 years.
Daily trips, half day or full day with lunch. Run the best rapids on the beautiful Vaal River in the Vredefort Dome, with guides who know the wildlife, the story of the meteorite and local history. Our guides are legally qualified and they love what they do.
Have fun as you learn about river processes and the Vaal in the Vredefort Dome. Teachers! – we put together a full programme of talks, walks, presentations and an educational pack.
We customise our educational adventures for primary and secondary schools. Let us know if you have classes for geography, history, life sciences or life skills. There is plentiful overnight accommodation. School visits can include the rafting as well as hikes in the Vredefort Dome to learn about meteorite impacts and landscapes. There’s no better way to understand what you read in books – come and see for yourselves.
The river’s up and the sun’s shining! Come tubing! All our rafting trips include some tubing on easy rapids. And you can choose your raft – either a guided 4-6 seater or paddle-yourself croc. We never take large groups (some operators put 50 boats on the water – how gross is that?) and we always make sure the guides look after you personally. Our guides are qualified and legally registered, and we’ve been in business since 1982: doesn’t that tell you something? Come with the real pros!
The RIVERMAN pioneered rafting tourism in South Africa and remains a leader in guide training and the development of new types of boats and equipment. Running expeditions is always difficult and complex. We strive to deliver a professional service and assure you of our best effort. Our guides are members of Adventure Standards Africa and have done training courses covering river safety and rescue, leadership, operations and environmental ethics.
