High Water White Water Rafting

We had this e mail from Safpar, the company we use for our Guests at Chanters Lodge who like to go rafting.

“Happy New Year to you!

It’s that time of year again when the rains have been falling and the river levels are rising meaning that we need to go onto high water rafting. We will be starting from rapid 7b from Thursday 7th January.


7.30am pick up from town accommodation (this varies slightly depending on which lodge clients are staying at)

8.00am – meet at Waterfront for safety talks and breakfast

8.45am – depart to rapid 7b for a walk down into the gorge to commence rafting

Raft to rapid 25 and get the Jet Extreme cable car lift out of the gorge where the Safpar truck will be waiting with ice cold beers, soft drinks and some fruit to snack on for the journey back to The Waterfront

14.30 / 15.00 – Arrive back at Waterfront for a late lunch and to watch the DVD of the day’s rafting

16.00 – Transfer provided back to town accommodation”
Still an awesome experience!
