Mambasa to Alpine View

Our second regular one-day white water paddle. A bit shorter but equally as good. Action packed from start to finish. When the Tugela River really gets going there is some enormous white water to be encountered. Rapids ranging from class 1-5, no sweat. Depending on group composition we run this section with either 2-man inflatable rafts (or Crocs) and/or 6-8 man inflatable rafts! And when you’re done you will be pulling in at the Pig and Plough farm shop for a burger, pizza or a pie!



Region: Upper Tugela River (around the town of Winterton, KwaZulu-Natal).

Duration: 1 day.

What you will get: All equipment and guiding, lunch at the Pig and Plough Farm Shop and transport back to your vehicle(s) from the take-out.

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

Itinerary rating: Moderate and friendly. Children younger than eight years of age will not be permitted to take part.

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 you 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.
