Breede River Rafting

General Information

Equipment & Guides:

We make use of 2-man inflatable rafts (crocodiles) with cooler box, dry bags, personal floatation devices and paddles included. The inflatable rafts are easy to control, safe and loads of fun.

Two or three qualified (APA) river guides with the necessary experience and knowledge of the river and the environment will guide you on your day of adventure through the Breede River Valley. No previous experience is needed and only a moderate fitness level is required. We believe in responsible and sustainable tourism development and have the utmost respect for the beautiful African continent and its rivers. Please help us to keep our rivers clean and pristine

After paddling the Breede for many years we have decided to break our river rafting tours into two options catering for the local and international markets.

Our river rafting trips are suitable for all group sizes wanting a  day or an overnight package.

1: Worcester Section

This section is close to Cape Town, based outside Worcester and a hour and a half’s drive out the Mother city, starts from Nekkies campsite and the first weir gets everyone into the rafting spirit. Abundant malachite king fishers and a few breeding pairs of fish eagles make for some spectacular bird watching. The trip ends at Low Africa take out point at the High Africa Camp lodge and a choice of accommodation options are available. This stretch is suitable for small, medium and large groups and for day, overnight and weekend trips.

2: Swellendam Section

The Swellendam Stretch, 22 km’s from the N2 on the Malgas /Infanta road near  Swellendam hosts some great rapids and amazing scenery. Only 2.5 hours drive from Cape Town. Starting from our very own private camp called the Xama Fish Eagle River Camp. This is truly an amazing paddle through some of the more remote areas on the Breede with Xama Adventures being only one of two operators that paddles this section. This is our favourite stretch with scenery that will enchant everyone. This stretch is suitable for small, medium and large groups and preferable for overnight and weekend trips.
