Half day Trips-  About 7km of paddling on very placid water, beginning upstream of our base camp and ending at the campsite.
It´s perfect for a relaxing morning or afternoon, this specific stretch of river is very calm and you will have lots of time to swim, fish and just have fun in the water.

Full day Trips - Offered with or without lunch. About 14km of of paddling. We begin the trip at base camp and paddle down stream for the day. We stop on the banks of the river where your Guide will prepare your lunch. There are 4 rapids on this stretch of river(grade1-2). If the day on the river is over you will be picked up by a transport and taken back to the base camp where you can enjoy cold refreshments at the shop on premisses or at the bar.

Overnighter - This is a fun and adventurous trip in that the group spends the night in the bush- after a full day´s paddle on the river. The trip starts at base camp and paddle about 15km during the day. If the day on the river is finished, you will set up camp on the banks of the river where your guide will prepare your dinner, if you have chosen the catered option, you can also do a self-catering option. The following morning the group is picked up with a 4x4 vehicle and returned to base camp.
