Our 2 day trip doesn't go any further than the one day trip. But we explore a lot more of the river. On day 1 after we run the third rapid of the day (Bubugo) we hang a right and paddle over to the world famous 'Superhole'. Here we park up and pull out the riverboards and take you surfing! We'll teach you how to catch and surf this incredible standing wave and then spend a good couple of hours tearing it up! Once we've worn ourselves out surfing we have one last rapid to run - the biggest of the day - the incredible Itanda Falls and the 'Bad Place'.
We get into our beautiful plot of land around 4pm where we'll have light refreshments and cold drinks waiting for you!
After setting up camp we have a big well deserved BBQ, our legendary fines meeting and plenty more cold beers before the local women's group come to sing and dance for us.
Day 2 sees a big breakfast to get us going before pushing out into another day of whitewater action. We again pull out the riverboards and stop to surf as many waves as we can (water level dependent). As we take off the river mid-afternoon we've got more cold beers waiting for you to celebrate what may well have been two of the best days of your life!!
What to bring:
Shorts and t-shirt to wear on the water - if you sunburn easily consider long sleeves.
Suncream - you will be out in the sun for 4 - 5 hours - sunburn is our most common injury.
A change of clothes including a hoody or jacket for the drive home.
Any personal medication.
A water bottle - we have gone plastic bottle free - you will find water available throughout the day and we have cups should you need them.
Money to pay on arrival, extras such as t-shirts can also be bought from the base.
A sense of humor. It helps make the day a whole load more fun!
