South Africa’s main rivers, the Vaal and Orange, offer mild rapids for beginners or less experienced rafters in the Gauteng, Free State and Northern Cape regions. KwaZulu-Natal’s South Coast is home to the Umkomaas and Umgeni Rivers, which both provide intense paddling and rafting. Mpumalanga’s Blyde River offers a more challenging (and wonderfully scenic) feat.

Perhaps the most exciting river course to raft is the Zambezi River on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. This rolling water mass is best known for the thundering Victoria Falls. The termination of the falls provides a roaring gorge of rapids for wild, wet and wonderful fun.
