Four Rivers Rafting and Adventures

The Fourie family have an effervescent zest for adventure and had been into canoeing and rafting for years before finally turning a hobby into a business. Aside from the river-based activities, they organise kloofing (my favourite), quad bikes, archery, zip lines (not at the same time!) and abseiling and much more....

Alternatively join the Sharks Board team in the early morning boat trips along Durban's waterfront, checking the shark nets that line the beaches and protect swimmers.

  • Prices: Adults R25. Kids R15. Boat trips cost R250.
