RIVER RAFTING PACKAGES FOR SCHOOL GROUPS
We at Bushwhacked firmly belive that every child should experience the magic of rafting on the Orange River. Not only for the fun part of it, but because of the lessons that can be learnt. Team work, Nature Environment, Ecology, Responsibility, Safety, Personal Fitness and the ability to overcome anything.
Being parents ourselves, we understand your concern for your childrens safety and well being. We endeavour at every level to keep your children safe (and under control) with our strict rules. These rules are not designed to hamper the fun, but to ensure your child returns safely to you sporting wide grins and sharing happy stories of their experience with Bushwhacked.

We do work closely with the educators that join the children on these trips and any interaction is encouraged to guarantee an awesome rafting experience.
An additional package now available at Bushwhacked is our Adventure Vehicle Operations
division where transport from your school to us can also be arranged for your group. Contact Us
with any questions please and we gladly assist you.
The Boats and Safety:
We use crocs - which are two man inflatable canoes. They are incredibly easy to handle, are very stable and as they are inflatable, are unsinkable. Each trip will be accompanied by at least (2) two professional, registered river guides, who each carry throw ropes and are well versed in river rescue techniques and each person is given a life jacket which they are required to wear on the river.
Should it be required or requested, the trip can also be run in 8 man inflatable rafts. This would be recommended for groups consisting of young participants.
The section of Orange River that we run trips on is graded 1 to 2, thus allowing us to take people with no previous canoeing or rafting experience.
