NATURES VALLEY CANOEING
NATURES VALLEY: GROOT RIVER LAGOON CANOEING ECO-ADVENTURE
The Groot River on the eastern side of Natures Valley snakes its way through ancient gorges before opening up into the lagoon area before entering the sea. This is our water based playground as we meander up the river to the Groot River bridge looking for signs of Otter and other elusive mammal species as well as an abundance of birdlife. This slow passive paddle takes us to some of the most beautiful and pristine areas of Natures Valley – the meandering course of the Groot River, the expanse of the lagoon and a leisurely walk on the beach where the Groot River flows seaward. We explore in a relaxed manner where time is of no essence. Enjoy our adventure – Natures Valley.
Due to the magnificence and position of the Groot River system in Natures Valley along the Garden Route, the African Edu-Eco Wizard team offers a passive, guided Experiential Canoeing Eco-Adventure for all passive adventurers. We not only focus on the canoeing aspect of the adventure but also the interpretive value of the surrounding vegetation, the system, elusive mammal signs and birds that abound. This can be combined with the Kolanderkloof Guided Walking Eco-Trail to make a day of Natures Valley and its bountiful treasures on offer.
A maximum group size of 12 people can be accommodated. Our lead guides are very highly qualified, survivors in their own right, educators and teachers who love sharing and teaching what they know. Herewith are details of the programs which can be enjoyed either in the early to mid-morning or mid-late afternoon depending on your availability. This adventure can be done in conjunction with the Kolanderskloof Guided Forest Walking Eco-Adventure offered in Natures Valley.
