It's a ride you have to see it to believe it!
1100hrs: Safety briefing at the starting point and the excitement kicks up a notch as you propel yourself - and your raft - through the pounding rapids of the Padas River. The excursion covers a distance of 9km of this 200 km river that holds 7 exciting and tough rapids!
