River rafting in Durban, South Africa.

River rafting is a classic adventure activity and there are several navigable rivers near Durban.

Most operators are based on the Umkomaas River which is conveniently located between Durban and Pietermaritzburg and provides conditions for some of the best white water rafting in the country. Rising from the highest mountain in Lesotho, Thabana Ntlenyana, the Umkomaas packs a punch when it shunts its way down to the Indian Ocean during the summer rainfall season. In inflatable rafts specially designed with safety in mind, highly experienced river guides lead you through green valley’s where sharp eyed paddlers might spot blue-wildebeest or a shy clawless otter and then into gorges where all your attention will be focussed on navigating a series of rapids ranging from  fun grade 2 to heart-pounding grade 4.
