This was my first "rafting" experience in South Africa. Note that nowhere it says "white water" ... and look at the peacefulness of the river! There was one petty excuse for a rapid which was about a foot wide. Incidently, we struggled enough with that one and ended up stuck in a tree!! Judith and I were rafting partners (everyone else was thankful that we chose to go together!) and single handedly hit just about every set of bushes on both sides of the river. But it was beautiful surroundings and very peaceful. We slept out under the stars after going to a pub to shower (never done that before!) and a wine farm for tasting along the way!!
