Awesome experience. Got close up and personal with some very cute seals and their mischievous antics. Very well organised and safe adventure. Well done. - Dave Mason


This experience was really awesome, starting from the super nice guide to the playful seals. It was nice drive to the shore and there were so so many seals, this was amazing. And these creatures are so lovely and playful, they where just swimming around us. We really joined the trip! - Karoline

Run the river with AfriCanyon, navigate through the river shallows, swim through natural tannin coloured fresh-water mountain pools, maneuver down water slides and abseil waterfalls as you dip down into the river gorge.

Customer Reviews

What an amazing end to my holiday. Done this on one of my last days and my god aren't I glad I done it. Warren and puna were amazing and did a great job in helping my fiance and mother in law overcome their fears. Would defiantly go again! Can't wait to go back - Thomas phelps


It was an amazing trip. All the guides were very friendly and helped us to enjoy the beautiful landscape. - Pedro Augusto Carvalho de Andrade


FANTASTIC TOUR!!! - Thomas & Mathias


We had a fabulous experience with Africanyon. Thanks so much for a great time and all the help you gave me, a very nervous participant!! Well run, exciting, with lots of safety consideration which was perfect for me. - Jane Chalmers


Incredible experience hosted by the ever entertaining Nick and Steph. Rock rappelling, zip lines, cliff jumping into river pools, peacefully gliding down primordial waterways staring up at the sky though a lush canyon forest - what didn't this tour have? Hats off for a beautifully curated adventure that was safe enough for young kids to complete, while still offering an adrenaline-pumping challenge for adults. - Daren K
