Paddle Power is the original river rafting and adventure company operating on the Crocodile River and has been doing so for more than 18 years. 


  • Our 2hr rafting trip is scheduled at either 9 am or 1pm - seven days a week .
  • Please indicate your preferred time slot. In winter we go on the river at 12 when the weather is warmest.    
  • We start this exciting 5km trip navigating 2 exciting weirs and then there are a series of rapids which vary between class 1 and class 3 and sometimes class 4 after good rains.    
  • Standard Cost:   2 - 7 people = R390 per person   8 + people = R360 per person  
  • We take children from the approximate age of 7. The main criteria is that they are not afraid of water. All children pay standard rates due to the increased risk that comes with taking kids on the water
