Summer has officially arrived and the South Africans are loving it! Those swimming costumes are being dusted off and sun screen applied as our beloved hot African sun claims it`s spot in the sky. You know what accompanies that awesome sun? Adventure filled water sport! We have found just the place that offers the widest variety of adventures all one activity.
The place I am referring to is AfriCanyon River Adventure and it is situated near Plettenberg Bay. AfriCanyon River Adventures was formed in order to share this multipart kloofing route, which lies in the hidden valleys of The Crags, near Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route.
AfriCanyon offers a type of all-inclusive hike through the river gorges. It is definitely not for the faint hearted but rest assured safety is a big priority with these guys. If you are doing it for the first time every step of the way will be perfectly explained by a guide and you will receive all the safety gear you may need.
The route includes a whole list of blood pumping, mind blowing obstacles. This includes navigating your way through the river shallows. Jumping down cliffs into ice-cold mountain water. They have installed a zip-line giving you a stunning aerial view of the area. At a stage you will also have to swim through fresh-water mountain pools. Another awesome thing about this trail is the natural waterslides that can be found along the way. At the final stages of the course you will abseil in and around waterfalls as you dip down into the river gorge. All sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it?
If you are an adventure junking you cannot pass Plettenberg Bay without going to experience this gem of an adventure centre!
