What is a typical day on the river?
After meeting your guides you will be given a trip safety briefing that will include how and where you can sit on the rafts, how to hold on, and safety precautions while on the river. A typical day will include rafting for a few hours at a time, stopping for bathroom breaks, lunch and possible swimming opportunities. After a full day of learning the ins and outs of the river and tackling fun rapids, we arrive at camp. You will find your preferred campsite and then return to the rafts and unload our gear. Your help in passing the gear off the boat is greatly appreciated; however, if you have physical restrictions or limitations that would prohibit you from participating, we will take care of it.
In camp, the guides will give a demonstration on how to easily set up your hammock or tent and will be available to help you if you need additional assistance. Southern White Water provides hammocks to sleep in, camp chairs and waterproof gear bags for all guests. You’ll have no need to worry about bringing any of your own camping equipment unless you prefer to.
Please check the gear list for information on what to bring.
While you relax at the river’s edge, your guides will prepare a range of appetisers followed by a delicious dinner and unique desserts. At night, whether you choose to sleep in your hammock or under the canopy of stars, the fresh night air and the rhythm of the river will lull you to sleep. In the morning, your guides will prepare breakfast. You’ll have a chance to enjoy eating before returning to your campsite to take down your hammock and pack up your belongings in your dry bag. After bringing your bag down to the boats, we are off on another fun-filled day of adventure.
