Price from: R995 per person
Duration: 4-5 hours on river
The trip includes a 20min scenic forest drive from Storms River Village to the drop off point in the Goesa Nature Reserve where you'll receive your tube. Fully kitted with specialized equipment and guided by local expert guides, a steep 800m walk down the side of the gorge gets you to river's edge
Now the fun begins... for the next 4-5 hours we'll be negotiating our way down this phenomenal river by means of flatwater paddling, bouldering, optional tube and cliff jumps with lots of laughs and spectacularly unique scenery. Half way down we stop for a recharge with a chocolate bar and a tube balancing session. The cascade down double dumper brings us to our last few pools before the canyon majestically opens out at the Storms River Mouth Suspension Bridges in the famous Tsitsikamma National Park.
Our exit at the concrete jetty brings us to the suspension bridge boardwalk that takes roughly 20min to walk back to the parking area where our shuttle bus awaits. The drive back through the National Park to Storms River Village takes 20min and back at Tube ‘n Axe a well earned hot shower and ‘lekker braai’ round off the days activity with complimentary media and a cash bar
