Join us for a day of canoeing on the river at Goukamma Nature reserve. The reserve is situated 15km from Knysna on the Buffalo bay road and is an official MPA. (Marine Protected Area). The area is a sublime experience for nature lovers with 7km of long, wide, completely unspoilt beaches, surrounded by vegetated dunes, some of the largest in South Africa. The river meanders through indigenous forest, dunes, milk wood forest, and farm land. Beginners and experts are welcome. We can paddle as hard or as soft as you like. For the fitness freaks there is a 12km paddle to the road and back, and for nature lovers we cruise as slowly as is necessary to enjoy the reserve. The river is flat and there no rapids, a perfect spot for swimming.
Transfers, permits, all equipment, and light refreshments are provided.

Swimming costume, towel, sandals, hat, camera, sunblock!
