Rafting in Tugela River, Drakensberg, KwaZulu-Natal South Africa

Rapids Grade:
3-5
Rising from the Eastern Cape and running along the Kwazulu-Natal's western border, the Drakensberg mountain range is the highest in South Africa standing at 3482 m/11424 ft in height. The mountains are capped by a layer of basalt of 1400 m/4593 ft thick and offers amazing flora and fauna.

The 30 km/18.7 mi stretch of river, also known as The Canyon, offers one of the most thrilling white water rafting in South Africa. The river boasts excellent rafting conditions with awesome rapids and it cuts through two areas, The Canyon and the Tugela Gorge further down stream.

The rafting activity normally begins with a 45 minutes on flat water with grade 1 rapids, allowing you to get the hang of it. Further on it is all bump and riding on rapids, ranging between grade 3-5!! No experience is necessary as it is a guided tour with an expert in control.
