paddle tubing

unleash your inner adventurer!

Paddle tubing is a mini rafting expedition up the Knysna river, where few people have had the opportunity to explore.

Unleash your inner adventurer,as you hike, paddle, navigate, swim and rock jump(optional).

A great way to take in the south African sunshine!

the trip

The tour begins at Charlesford Farm, where you hop onto the back of our 4×4 vehicle for a short drive to the forest edge.  We then take an easy walk through the indigenous forest to reach the river entry point with our gear.  From there, our easy-to-manoeuvre rafting tubes provide a fun trip down the spectacular Knysna River gorge. Flanked by indigenous forest, the river transports us through a scenic wonderland of unspoiled wilderness.You can expect serene, glass-like pools, high cliffs, narrow flowing channels, and the occasional small fun rapids.
