This is a guide to the whitewater rivers of Southern Africa, aimed at whitewater kayakers, K1-paddlers, commercial rafters, and also those outdoor lovers who are curious about rivers or paddling. More than 140 sections on over 70 rivers are described, from short one-day to severe multi-day expedition trips.
Designed for a wider audience than just active paddlers, the book is presented in a coffee-table format. Its aim is to provide all the necessary information for paddlers who want to know where to find a piece of whitewater to have fun on. The introduction of the book gives more insight into the paddling scene in Southern Africa, and the river descriptions are grouped according to drainage basins.
Every description is accompanied by a detailed map and a fact file with information like difficulty, length, duration, type of river, put-in and take-out points, and necessary permits. Rivers of all difficulty levels are described, from scenic cruises to technical creeks to big water magic.
