Description de l'activité
Enjoy 2 exhilarating whitewater activities in the Palmiet River in the middle of Kogelberg Nature Reserve.
The Palmiet River tumbles through the Fynbos covered mountains of the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, just outside Kleinmond, about an hour's drive from Cape Town. This pristine natural environment forms the backdrop to this Palmiet River excursion.
A friendly stream during the summer months, winter rainfall turns the river into an exciting white water adventure. The excursions are designed so that you can experience an exciting adventure in both seasons, creating an almost all year round outing.
Gravity Adventure pioneered the Palmiet River and have been running it for over 15 years now. They can truly say that they are ‘the original and the best’ and that newer operators on the river don’t even come close. They are privileged to be a licensed operator on this awesome river.
You will get the chance to enjoy outings on inflatable 'gekos'. This innovative inflatable craft was been specially developed for the Palmiet and is now used countrywide. If used in a reclining position, it provides a comfortable way to drift lazily along the pools and channels of the river and if used facing forward, an exciting way of tackling the small rapids.
The Palmiet River experience is suitable for all ages and skill levels. You'll be accompanied by qualified and registered guides with an intimate knowledge of the river and its environment and will guide you on how to steer your craft. And since all of the rapids are optional, the trip is even suitable for those who prefer a more relaxed excursion.
In the high water months (winter and spring), when you can go rafting, you can try the longer section, starting in the Kogelberg Nature Reserve. At lower water tubing levels, you can complete a shorter section of the river.
The rapids vary between 1-4, easy to challenging, depending on water level.Conditions particulières
Whilst there is an inherent element of risk in every adventure, tubing with the professional guides should not be considered dangerous. All guides are all trained in First Aid and they carry a first aid kit. It is your responsibility to make sure you have any personal medication with you (e.g. asthma pumps, allergy medication etc.).
Please note this option does not include the CapeNature Conservation fee (currently R40.00 per adult and payable on entry) – if you have a WildCard or are staying in the reserve, you don’t pay this.
