Canoe and Kayak Hire & Tours in Wilderness, South Africa
Kayak and Canoe Hire R200 per person per day We have single and double canoes and kayaks for hire. These come equipped with paddles, buoyancy aids and waterproof containers for picnics, cameras etc, and a map to assist you in your decision making. Please Note when paddling on the Touw River in the Wilderness National Park there will be a further conservation levy to pay. This will be for your own account Touw River: One can pack a picnic and some swimming gear and head to the Touw River Rockpools. Paddle up the Touw River through the indigenous forest, where there is an abundance of birdlife. After about 40mins of easy paddling you will reach a point where it becomes too shallow and too narrow to continue. Leave the canoe on the right hand side of the river and follow the path up onto the bank. There you will come across a boardwalk which will take you past various rock pools. Relax, swim, picnic and return via the same way. Island Lake is about a 1.5 to 2 hour paddle down the Serpentine River. Turning right into a tributary of the Touw River, continue through the meandering reedbeds to Island Lake. About half way there, one passes under the Hoekwil road bridge. Just after the bridge the reeds become very overgrown. Push through the reeds for about 20m and it will then open up again. At Island Lake there is a picnic site on the left. Return the same way. Round trip = 4 to 5 hours. Although scenery on this route is not spectacular it is often good for birdwatching. For those wanting to paddle to the beach, the river mouth is about 30 to 40 mins paddle from Eden Adventures. The river gets wider towards the mouth and banks become more developed, however it is still a lovely alternative. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Request to Book” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer.
