The Riverman

The Riverman, pioneers of whitewater rafting tourism in South Africa, will take you on superb River Rafting adventures in the best destinations!

We are based at Otter’s Haunt by the Vaal River, an hour’s drive from Johannesburg, and our rafting locations are countrywide. Either hang on and enjoy the ride in a guided 4-8 seater raft – perfect for families, the grandparents, the disabled and the not-so-confident, or paddle your own 2 seater Croc.

The Vaal River around Parys offers exceptional rafting with year-round whitewater, especially between December and Easter. Loads of exhilarating and picturesque class 1, 2 and 3 rapids will be just enough to keep those knuckles white! The incredibly scenic Orange River, considered to be one of the top 10 tripping rivers in the world, offers a variety of class 1 to 4 rafting routes. Mayaputi Gorge, Thunder Alley and Oranje Gorge are 3 of our most popular routes on the Orange.

Our Doring River expeditions launch near Clanwilliam offering a unique perspective of the Namaqualand daisies from August, and our Tugela River trips starting from Weenen in KwaZulu-Natal run through beautiful subtropical gorges. We also offer a range of rafting training courses in a variety of locations.

Come one, come all…solo travellers, families, couples, groups, first-timers. We have everything you need for a sensational rafting adventure so book with The Riverman today!
