There are many reasons why the Doring River is one of the most ideal locations for river rafting in the world…

Not only does it offer some of the most magnificent scenery to be found anywhere in South Africa, but equally breathtaking is the powerful exhilarating rapids along the way.

It's this combination that makes it the perfect escape for lovers of both nature and adventure.

The Doring River is a typical Cape mountain stream that, during the winter months (June - September), is transformed by rainfall into raging white water. Running through the Cederberg mountain range, the Doring provides us with two days of action, fun, excitement and challenge. We raft through areas where overhang caves remain adorned with Bushman paintings in near-perfect condition; and during the season, Namaqualand flowers carpet the surrounding area.

“This is one trip that cannot be missed, especially if you have been on the Orange River and the Breede River and need a little more excitement to get those adrenalin juices flowing. This should definitely not be missed”.


It is exciting....stimulating.....exhilarating and an adventure you will never forget!! The perfect venue for a great weekend of white-water rafting! The rafting season is dependent on sufficient winter rainfall and usually runs from mid-July to mid-September.

This heart stopping adventure is on one of South Africa’s most exciting rivers. Being a mere 3 hours from Cape Town (approximately 280km), the Doring River provides an exciting weekend getaway within comfortable driving distance. This is a winter river, flowing strongly through the Cedarberg Mountain region. As it is fed by the Cape winter rains, the result is a wild, energetic river with Grade 2-3 rapids which are perfect for rafting.

River Rafting is one of the healthiest, most adventurous and exciting activities available. You do not need any experience as our professional guides will instruct you on the basics of river rafting and certain safety procedures. Rest assured, by the time you have conquered the last rapid, you will be a confirmed rafting addict!

Fitness and paddling experience are not essential as full paddling instruction is given.

We use two-man inflatable rafts (crocs), which are specifically designed for comfort and safety.
