Kloofing, a thrilling experience. First you go on a sunny hike up the river valley, then moving through the crystal clear pools, clambering over massive boulders and winding up the watercourse as the magnificent cliffs close in around you. The pace is hectic and when you stop for a well-deserved lunch you’ll be keen to rest under the shade of the trees in the cool gorge. This is a full day of! You’ll need to be able to swim as you will have to swim through the gorge towards the end of the adventure.
