More about Rafting trip 2 days, 2 nights

The Doring River is situated near Clanwilliam, about 3 hour’s drive from Cape Town. Set in the foothills of the Cedarberg, this lovely area offers visitors beautiful scenery and springtime flower displays. The river itself winds through a pristine canyon, offering a real wilderness experience. Dry in summer, winter rains swell the river forming exciting whitewater rapids such as ‘House’,’ Krantz’, and ‘Island’. We are offering two-day expedition trips on this section but can also arrange 3-4 day long trips by request…

We use inflatable two-person ‘crocs’ that are easy to paddle and steer. We also have a couple of rafts that are very stable and perfect for less confident paddlers. Each trip is run as a self-contained expedition – we carry everything we need with us and take everything back out again at the end. We make our way downriver, camping at night. All you need to provide is your personal camping gear and drinks of your choice. All meals are included from breakfast on the first morning and optional dinner on a Friday night, as are qualified guides, and boating and safety equipment.

The typical two day trip starts at the base camp near the river where your guides will be waiting to meet you. Next morning, after a hearty breakfast, your guides will give you advice on how best to pack your drybags for your trip down river. You’ll be transported to the put in point. Before getting on the water you’ll also have a thorough safety briefing and some paddling instruction. Then, it’s time to get going for a two days of excitement! At the end of the trip, you’ll be transported back to base camp to pack up and head for home. The above itinerary may change slightly according to season, water level and accommodation availability. You also have the option of staying at Oudrif Lodge (subject to availability), overlooking the famous ‘House Rapid’ – let us know if you are keen on this option and we can quote accordingly. This is also a great option for non paddlers

Winter & Spring


Doring Rivier


In winter and spring the weather is generally cool to cold and sometime rainy. This area is in a rain shadow so there is also a good chance of glorious, sunny weather. Nights are always cold though! Trips will run despite the weather although we will cancel or postpone if we feel it’s necessary. You’ll be wearing a wetsuit and getting wet anyway so the rain usually doesn’t make too much difference!
