Always innovative, Gravity offers a variety of micro adventures close to our bases in Cape Town and Onseepkans. Coasteering near Boulders, Simons Town – rock jumps, snorkelling and swimming.
Sea Kayaking and Day cruises in the West Coast National Park. Whitewater Rafting in winter and Tubing in summer on the Palmiet River in the beautiful Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. From our base on the Orange River, we offer rafting day trips in the desert. Our newest adventure is River SUPping – our stable inflatable paddleboards are a great platform for a day out on the river.
This is where you unplug from modern day life and relax. The Orange River Gorge in the Northern Cape trip offers desert rafting at its best whilst the Maluti Meander showcases the mighty Orange nearer its source. The Doring near Clanwilliam delivers a weekend of whitewater action whilst the iconic Zambezi needs no introduction. All trips are run as self contained expeditions and lead by our professional guides.
From corporates to schools, we will tailor make an adventure to suit your needs and budget. A morning on the water, a day on the beach or perhaps a fully fledged multi discipline adventure programme or team build, we will make it happen.
Our portfolio includes Indigo Blue Beach House and Baby Blue Beach Cottage, on the beach in Langebaan as well as Baby Blue Too, our cute and cosy houseboat. Further north, Red Rock River Camp offers a tranquil campsite on the banks of the Orange and – coming soon – a self catering cottage on the water’s edge.
APA, IRF and NQF accredited training and assessments for paddling guides. Whether you are looking for a gap year, vacation job or a career in adventure, our training courses and industry relevant advice will get you started.
