Only a short drive (40min) from Pretoria and Johannesburg, the Crocodile River offers rafting done in 2-man inflatable rafts, that only require basic paddling skills, but during the rainy season between October and March, the river can also offer some fun White Water Rafting. Apart from the rivers name, rest assured that there are no Crocodiles, but only abundant bird life and the odd giant monitor lizard basking on the banks.
