Ride the White Waters

Once upon a time the Ash River was a tiny, rather uninteresting trickle, but now that  the Lesotho Highlands Water Project feeds in crystal clear  water all the way from Katse Dam, the stretch of river near Clarens has become a white-water rafter’s playground.

Because the Ash river (or As Rivier – Axle River) comes down from Lesotho as part of the Trans Caledon Transfer – the Highland Water Project Phase 1, white water rafting in Clarens happens all year round as the crystal clear waters of the mountains pour out of the pipes. (Ash River Outlet)

What’s more, it runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round.  This section of the Ash River offers 9 rapids and loads of excitement. White water rafting offered by the following companies and their experienced guides can be enjoyed by everyone.
