Tugela River Adventures - Activities on the Tugela River in KwaZulu-Natal.
South Africa is famous for its sunshine but it is also a dry country. The average rainfall is only 464 mm. Compare this to the world average of 860 mm. So, it’s a great place to catch a tan. But with all that sunshine and not a lot of rain, how can it be that South Africa is also a fantastic River Rafting destination?
The answer lies in the mighty Drakensberg Mountains. Here, regular summer rainfall provides the source of many of the great rivers of South Africa. In KwaZulu-Natal, the Tugela River plunges 947 metres down the Tugela Falls. This river is the largest in the province and offers adventure seekers an adrenaline filled River Rafting adventure with rapids ranging from Grade 1 to 5.
With names like ‘the liquidiser’ and ‘the washing maching’ you know that you are in for a thrilling ride!
Although River Rafting on the Tugela River is not for the faint hearted, there is no rafting experience required and trained qualified river guides lead all trips ensuring a fun, invigorating, adventurous and safe trip down the river.
