Run the Rivers of
Southern Africa is the first-ever guide to the whitewater rivers of Southern
Africa, packed with awesome full-colour pictures. If you are a whitewater
kayaker, a K1-paddler, a commercial rafter, or even just curious about
rivers or paddling in Southern Africa, this book is for you. It will open
your eyes to the amazing variety of paddling destinations available, from
scenic cruises to technical creeks to big water magic.
More than 140
sections on over 70 rivers are described, from short one-day to severe
multi-day expedition trips. Commercial rafters will get the information
they need to go rafting, K1-paddlers will find their favourite rivers
described and some more unknown ones, and kayakers will realise how many
more rivers there are to run.
Apart from excellent whitewater rivers,
Southern Africa also offers unspoilt
natural areas to appreciate and cultures to experience. For many paddlers
it is not just a sport to run rivers, but a lifestyle. For those who feel
the spirit of the river in their veins, this book will be more than an
attractive source of information; it will become a source of inspiration.
