Canoeing Keurbooms River

  • About 4 hours
Vouchers can be used anytime, for any activity


Join us for a scenic paddling up the Whiskey Creek Gorge in the picturesque Keurbooms Reserve. GoVertical’s guides invite you to spend the morning exploring this stretch of forested wilderness. From the lazy river, to the overhanging cliffs and forested slopes, the scenery is splendid.

We take a break on one of the many of the idyllic sandy beaches along the river to enjoy a swim. It is possible to swim, wade and explore the area. The water is crystal clear, but also the colour of coca cola, a strange concept. The colour is due to the tannins and humus from the forest and is completely natural and unpolluted. Knysna Loeries, Fish Eagle, shy Bush Buck, Genet and many forest creatures live along the forest margins, this canoe trip is a compete departure from civilisation, it's a treat.

A very professionally run outfit, so rare in the current climate. From enquiry, to booking and through to the actual experience, 5/5, our company members thoroughly enjoyed ourselves...everyone's still talking about it... well done guys, keep it up, and see you again one day.

I have travelled the world and used over 50 adventure companies, and i have never had a company keep 50% of my money because i cannot make the activity, especially with over 5 months notice.

People deserve to know that once you have paid this company whatever the circumstances, you will not be getting your money back. well maybe some if you argue with them.

Just finished the Drakensberg Grand Traverse with GoVertical. What a wonderful experience. Garth's passion and knowledge of the Drakensberg is legendary. Ill definitely see you again for a trek in the Garden Route.
