“Tubing=awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

I'd never been rafting and initially planned on doing that, but with no open bookings, settled for the tubing.

Thought it was gonna be a mediocre, lazy river waste of time and money.

To my surprise it was quite challenging and exhilarating perhaps being novel to water tubing/rafting, with 3guides keeping you on the right track. Tubes have a thick underside padding, preventing injury to lower back by rocks.

2hours of fun, great for beginners and the whole family at only R160pp

“Well worth the boat tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Do the Blyde River Canyon boat tour with this outfit. The guide is knowledgeable and you will pick up a lot of fun facts - like what exactly is a canyon and how is it different from a gorge. The 1-1/2 hour boat trip costs Rand 120 or US$12.

“Lovely views on the Blyde river boat cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We loved this trip in the Blyde river canyon. The tour guide was well informed, pointing out land marks as well as crocodiles and hippos. Would highly recommend if you are in the area of Hoedspruit or Swadini.
