Water activities around South Africa - Ground Zero Adventures


So what if winter is just around the corner, there is still so much to enjoy in our wonderful country. It may seem like the wrong time of the year to be getting wet, but below are a list of really wild and fun activities that can be enjoyed even in the depths of winter. Some come with wet suites, some are indoors in warm water and some are just above the flow, so, no matter the temperature, all can be enjoyed as our Home Food and Travel team will attest.

Ground Zero Adventures

Situated in Lanseria, Johannesburg, Ground Zero Adventures offers an unforgettable River Rafting experience as well as other activities and corporate packages, which provide the perfect balance between work and play.

If you’re an adrenaline junky looking for a nerve-wrecking experience, then Ground Zero Adventures River Rafting is perfect for you. The local Jukskei River, which joins the infamous Crocodile River, offers the best of both worlds with beautiful scenery, an abundance of birdlife and wildlife.

The full day adventure encompasses a 16km journey on the Crocodile River battling a number of rapids and bridges, stopping for breaks and a well-earned picnic lunch on the way down the river finally ending in Broederstroom.

If this seems like too much of a challenge, they also offer a half day trip (roughly 3 hours). Either way, you will experience hours of enjoyable and challenging adventures but don’t take my word for it, go test the waters.

Ground Zero Adventures supplies all equipment and trips are done under professional guidance ensuring safety. Soft drinks and lunch on the river are also provided; extra snacks may be brought if you wish.
