Rafting and white water rafting are recreational outdoor activities which use an inflatable raft to navigate a river or other body of water. This is often done on whitewater or different degrees of rough water, and generally represents a new and challenging environment for participants. Dealing with risk and the need for teamwork is often a part of the experience. The development of this activity as a leisure sport has become popular since the mid-1970s, evolving from individuals paddling 10 feet (3.0 m) rafts with double-bladed paddles to multi-person rafts propelled by single-bladed paddles and steered by a tour guide at the stern. It is considered an extreme sport, and can be fatal. The International Rafting Federation (IRF) is the worldwide body which oversees all aspects of the sport.

  • Stay healthy

  • Do not take unnecessary risks cike Climbing up rocks

Safety Briefing

 

A detailed safety briefing will be conducted before each trip. The rafting team for the trip explains what to do if the raft flips, how to help each other out of the water and what conditions to expect.

We always give the worst-case scenario so that people know what to expect from the trip and, therefore, have the choice to forego their trip after the safety talk. Once in the raft, you are instructed by your rafting guide as to how to negotiate the rapids and some practice is done before you set off. You are also briefed before each rapid on how the raft is expected to react.

 

Safety and Precautions

 

Rafting is safer then crossing road

  • We always ensure all the participants wear a life jacket.

  • We do not overload the raft.

  • We do not go rafting after/during a heavy rain.

  • Our guides are qualified and well trained.

  • We well know local weather conditions. We make sure the water and weather conditions are safe. Because water conducts electricity, it is wise to stop swimming, boating, or any activities on the water as soon as you see or hear lightning.

 

Practical Rafting Tips

 

All rafters will be given a safety briefing before the ride and will be shown basic backward and forward paddling techniques.

Always check that the helmets and life jackets provided fit you well and are not too tight or too loose.

Your life jacket will buoy you in the eventuality of the raft overturning. If you've over-turned close to the river bank, don't use your raft paddle, as you may hit someone else.

Do not attempt to use the paddle as a lever against rocks as you risk getting hit by it.

The following are some points to remember:

Bring a change of clothes. A warm-up jacket is also a good idea.

Wear well-fitting shoes, rubber shoes or sandals.

Jewelry which cannot be secured firmly should not be worn while rafting.

Those wearing glasses are reminded to use an elastic sports band to anchor their spectacles.

Contact lens users are advised to wear spectacles instead, in order to cut down the risk of their lenses getting contaminated by river water.
