Kayak and raft the Doring River through winter and into early spring. The river gets its water from winter rainfall and from the snowmelt of the Cape mountains. The region is semi-arid and warm, and the weather is often sunny in winter.

The river features flat-water sections with scattered rapids. As the Doring passes through the Cederberg, it flows through beautiful mini-canyons - a section favoured by paddlers.

Be sure to visit the sweet town of Clanwilliam while you're in the area.
