Dalton Bridge to Moor Park

If this is your thinking, this stretch is for you: I am keen for some white water today, but not that rough and tough type stuff. I want to be out there with the family, with the kids and all. The thrills and spills I am not interested in, the small bumps the beginner paddler would experience as exciting is what I am after. I don’t want to sit out there for hours either, just an hour or two will do. Bottom line, anyone can do it.



Region: Bushmans River (near the town of Estcourt, KwaZulu-Natal).

Duration: Half day, 1-2 hours on the water.

What you will get: All equipment and guiding, transport to and from the river and lunch. Please note, depending on group size you might have to get yourself to the put-in.

When to go: Best during high summer (October-March). It could however be done as late as May.

Itinerary rating: Easy. Anyone can come.

You will need:

  • You will need sun block and extra drinks for on river.
  • Your regular swim wear, the same as what you would wear to the swimming pool.
  • Shoes are recommended. Don’t bring running shoes. Use something like sandals that fasten around your feet.
  • On a rainy or overcast day it can get cold on the river, even in high summer! A light wind breaker or something similar is recommended. Don’t bring heavy and bulky clothing.
  • A t-shirt (preferably not cotton) can be worn underneath your life jacket. It helps keeping sunburn to a minimum.
  • Dry clothing for after the paddle.
