Welcome to my site! This site is intended to showcase rivers in South Africa. Whether you’re sitting elsewhere in the world and just browsing around or here in SA having a look at some rivers you want to run, I trust you will find what you’re looking for.

The site covers South Africa and Swaziland at the moment. In time there will be more information available on other countries such as Lesotho and perhaps even other African countries. I've also written a whole bunch of articles on my trip to Scandinavia in 2007 and you'll find loads of info on Sweden and Norway in them. As well as plenty of great pictures.

If you have any comments or want to add your own pictures or videos of any paddling in South Africa, Lesotho or Swaziland, then please do not hesitate to contact me. Without your help this site can never reach its full potential. Any contributions will be gladly appreciated!

Feedback is also always appreciated. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Please note: this site is always being updated and under construction. You should refer back here from time to time. Any updates will probably be posted on Playak anyway. Please visit our sponsors…

Be safe, and enjoy it!
