Whitewater Rafting

White water rafting is available on the Bushmans and  Tugela Rivers. First of all, rafting tips are dependent on water levels so the white water rafting season is limited from November through to April. The summer rains in the upper Drakensberg catchment turn the Tugela River into an particularly exciting stretch of white water.


The Drakensberg and Natal Midlands boast a number of golf courses some of which are world class. So if you are a golf lover this region offers a lot of golfing options.
