raft the vaal!

Gauteng's exciting river

Only 130km from Johannesburg, the Vaal River offers tremendous thrills and wonderful scenery. See MAP below. Come for a halfday, full day with lunch, or 1- or 2-night raft-camp among the many wilderness islands. The Vaal is a very popular weekend destination as well as a drawcard for company teambuilds and school & university educational outings. Ages 6-75.

Best trips, boats & guides

RIVERMAN offers quality trips, taking only smaller groups on the river and providing the best service and fun. We really mean that. We are the only operators giving you a choice of boats (from 2-seater crocs to 4-6 seat guided rafts,a passenger boat, and even tubes for playing in smaller rapids). Our guides are professionals, trained and qualified to international standards. They make sure you have a sensational experience and enjoy the environment with all its wildlife.      

River of the crater

Our rafting routes take us through the Vredefort Dome UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Vaal is the only major river on earth that flows through a meteorite impact crater - and it is the biggest known crater too. The surrounding hills are the first ring of the crater, while the islands and rapids have been formed by crater geology. Learn about this fantastic feature from our guides.
