“Black Water”
Review of Blackwater Tubing

Blackwater Tubing
Reviewed April 10, 2014

I was more excited about the fact that we were in Black Water than really the activity as such.

It mimics the water rafting in a way but is very different. Its very easy going unlike rafting.

Be careful about your back. If you have back issues, this is not recommended.

Even with the river being a bit low...it was still a very good experience....
Guides were good....
Will defnitrly be a lot better when the river is higher and you need some fitness to finish the last stretch which is a good flat rowing surface

I went when the water was quite low but it was still good fun. There was a lot of walking, balancing and getting in and out. The guides made it fun by flipping us in the tubes, trying tube surfing and cliff jumping. Great fun!

Not one rapid. In fact hardly any running current. The River is so low, you walk three quarters of the way. At R450 a head this is really a waste of hard earned South African cash! Website info needs to be updated.

Which there was a little bit more water and less walking but worth getting wet for. Staff was super helpful and I would go back for the full day trip - after some rain
