Went river rafting Dec 2022. What an amazing experience. The guides were well trained, professional and have great personalities. The owner, Jaco, is professional and friendly. Have a lot of amazing pictures to brag with on social media. The pictures are emailled, loaded on your phone or there's usb sticks available for sale.

Will definitely do this again!!!

We booked for 9am on the 29th of December. When we arrived 15 minutes before departure we were told a group had already left and we needed to wait 90 mins. We did this and in the inteim another 40 people arrived. Jaco the owner returned at 10:30 am. Everyone (45 of us) kitted up in Life jackets and helmets. Jaco then read out a random 22 names and said the balance of us had to wait another 90 mins. He was extremely rude and did not care one bit for his customers. He has a cowboy attitude and it made me wonder about his attitude towards safety. I insisted on a refund and the cash was shoved towards me. We went across the road to Eagle Rafting and had the opposite experience - welcoming, well organized and excellent attitude.

The river rafting experience was good, the guide was good. Don’t bother paying for pictures as Jaco will bluetick you till kingdom come and is unbothered. You may never get them. And he doesn’t refund you either

Went there for river rafting & quad biking. First part of the river rafting was fun & enjoyable.
When we were supposed to go for quad biking, it was an absolute disaster. They only had 3 quad bikes, of which only one of them was working. The most disappointing thing was that instead of Jaco being honest from the moment I booked the quad biking, he rather tried to persuade me to wait for them to jumpstart the other bike, of which we booked 3 but then only 2 would have meant to be in operation. Even the condition of the bikes itself is not in a clean & good condition.
I wouldn’t recommend Earth Adventures to anyone for quad biking experience, rather look elsewhere.

We had a great time on the river. The river truly is a wonder with so many beautiful sections. Guiding and organisation were great, we'll be back soon.

This is my second visit in two months. The Vaal River is beautifully scenic and fairly easy to navigate at this time of the year since the rains have not yet come, but watch out for the rocks and boulders underwater. There are many of them and can this make this level 1 white water experience tiresome.

I truly had a wonderful time though on both occasions but feel that there are too many kayaks. The first time, there were about 20 to 25 and this time, I think there may have been 35 to 40.

The health and safety regulations were not followed today. There were certainly not enough guides for the number of people and whilst I felt relatively safe the first time, this was not the case today. There were many kayaks capsizing and a lady broke her nose. There was also a group of guys who got into the truck transporting us to the drop with light beers in there hands. They did not try to conceal them and drank throughout the four hours we were on the River.

I returned a month after my initial experience because of the beauty and the very enjoyable and fun day I had, and would have rated it a 4. If today was my first experience, I would rate it a 2 and would most certainly not have recommended that my friends come and join me today.

It is a pity since now, I would only return if they guarantee safety and decrease the numbers.
