Breede River Rafting Weekend


Join us on the peaceful Breede River for a week-end or midweek break river rafting with family and friends. Feel free to let us be your host and organize incentive groups, a birthday party, school camps and team building packages.

After a day of floating down the Breede Rriver and negotiating some exciting rapids, spend the night or two at our Xama Fish Eagle River Camp, with a beautifully grassed camp, clean ablutions, electricity, comfortable accommodation and a friendly atmosphere. Relax around the fire in the boma over-looking the camp and river.

Enjoy sundowners on the deck over looking the Breede River and simply relax around the fire, while your guides prepare a fabulous bush cuisine feast for you. All your needs will be catered for by the Xama Crew.

Camp games and activities are available such as volley ball, bull, bucket golf, board games, darts and more. Enquire for more details and ask your guides on arrival should you wish to participate. Fishing rods available for hire too.

Includes: All meals, accommodation (tents), river rafting equipment, safety briefing, qualified and experienced guides.

Day 2:   On the Breede River

We wake early for a healthy breakfast, after which we are driven upstream to our put-in point. Here we have a safety briefing before getting into our 2 man inflatable rafts and spending the day paddling, negotiating rapids, enjoying the sunshine and the lovely landscape. We stop for lunch on a sand bar and hit the water again, arriving back at base camp at approximately 15h00.  From this point on, you can either sit around and relax for a bit, or spend some time playing camp games, fishing, take a nature walk or go bird watching.
