When the Vaal gets up you better watch out! It has massive holes, long wave trains, trees all over the place, and many a white-knuckle moment.  The river is considered high at 250 cumecs upwards. We stop rafting around 800 cumecs. If you consider that 20-30 is a normal flow, that's a huge volume of water. It must all go somewhere and our aim is to go with the flow. We run these trips in high season and we let those on the Whitewater Watch List know that we've got big stuff. You don't need a lot of prior experience but it helps. You do need to know how to swim and stay cool when all about you are thrashing around wildly.

Capsizes do happen, even to the big 6-8 seater rafts! We prepare you with capsize drill on flat water, and get you mentally prepared to fight the power of the river. "High-siding" means that the raft crew throw their weight towards the most scary waves to prevent the raft from getting turned over.
  • The route chosen for the day will depend on flow but we combine the best rapids for the best day of your life in whitewater.
