River Rafting in Gauteng, South Africa.
Just an hour’s drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria, the Crocodile River offers the perfect environment for some fast water fun in an evocative African environment of rocky ridges and cicada-singing bush veld.
When the Elephant Child in one of Rudyard Kipling’s famous Just So stories asks what the crocodile has for dinner, the Kolokolo Bird tells him 'Go to the banks of the great grey-green, greasy Limpopo River, all set about with fever-trees, and find out.'
The mighty Limpopo River makes up the south eastern border of South Africa and the Crocodile River in Gauteng, one of its main tributaries, is where you must head in your search for the thrills and spills of river rafting. Although this rivers name suggests some dangerous encounters, your thrills will be from paddling some fast u-bends and wild waters and while you are unlikely to find out what the crocodile has for dinner you might well spot a beautiful Malachite Kingfisher.
