Brilliant fun. We abseiled, rock pool jumped, zip lined, high lined and swam in the fresh water. Our guides were awesome, thank you Tebz, Luan n Nick for a great day canyoning in the Crags. So worth it.

We recently did this adventure and noted the extensive disclaimer. Including a disclaimer of Africanyon for all negligence, We asked Rogan for further information and also asked if they had had any client injuries or incidents. He recalled two. A shoulder displacement and one other related to an ankle. He further added that safety was paramount. I am incredibly disappointed upon further investigation to see the following article. ‘A BELGIAN tourist drowned after being swept down a river during a kloofing expedition outside Plettenberg Bay ...” “The body was handed over to the police and their forensic pathology team and an inquest docket has been opened.” The remaining five men were not injured. They were part of a group who had gone on the expedition with local adventure company Africanyon. Founder of Africanyon Rogan Hindmarch said yesterday they were investigating the incident and would be releasing more information by today.” Whilst my family has a lovely time, I do feel mislead as our questions relating to safety and previous incidents where pretty specific.

Hi - Yes swimming skills are not essential. everybody has a life jacket so you float down the river and your guides will certainly assist you.
