Ash River Rafting - Clarens - Corporate Incentives & Teambuilds - African Rafting




The Ash river is South Africa’s cleanest constant flowing river in the pristine surroundings of the Golden Gate area en route from the Katze Dam in Lesotho.
Definitely the best white water rafting SA has to offer with grade 3 and 4 rapids, the reason we run the river in big 6 man rafts. A qualified guide in the raft does the steering of the raft.

You’ll enjoy a delicious meal and drinks on the banks of the river on the full day trip.

All children will portage the two biggest rapids, “Fishpond” and “Big Surprise”.  Children doing the full day section will also portage the waterfall and shute.  There is a quieter section of the river with smaller rapids where younger children can join their parents in the raft for about 1, 5 hours’ rafting.
