Canoe the mighty Mzimvubu River

Canoe the mighty Mzimvubu River, famous for when it was full of hippos.  Don’t worry, its safe now, and we will take you on an exciting paddle.

Don’t worry if you’ve never been canoeing before, our large two-person canoes are safe and sturdy.  We either paddle down to the river mouth and stop for a beer at a local river-side restaurant; or we head up stream into stunning natural ecosystems.

Then we take the 5 minutes drive back to Amapondo.  Last one to the bar buys the first round of beers I’m afraid!

The canoe trip usually takes about three hours, but we can tailor it to suit your needs and fitness levels.
