Activity Description

Geckoing or White Water Tubing is one of Induna Adventure’s most popular Adventure activities. With this unique adventure you get the chance to descend the Sabie River Gorge with a “Gecko”. A Gecko is a white water tube that is oval (makes steering easier) shaped and it has a floor (so you don’t hit your bum on the rocks). The rapids are Class 2 (Grade 2) rapids and half way down the section you get the chance to jump off a 8 m waterfall.

Duration2 hours 30 minutes
WhenIt depends on the water levels. Often in January February the water levels gets too high for Geckoing. But if the water is too high for Geckoing then the White Water Rafting is GREAT!

Things to BringYourself
Guests or SpectatorsGeckoiing is by far one of the best adventure activities that humans came up with - it rocks! This is probably the best way to descend a low volume river like the Sabie. A Gecko is a very small raft that you steer with webbed gloves, no paddles needed! It is very easy to steer and very safe, and one of the coolest ways to have fun with family and friends in the sun and water!

Then you will get into a 4×4 vehicle and depart for the Gecko Section of the Sabie River which is about 15 minutes drive away.

Once you get to the river you will be briefed by the trip leader on safety aspects as well as how to handle your Gecko. You will be demonstarted how to steer the Gecko, how to prevent from falling out, what to do when you fall out and what not to do. Now you are ready to tackle the river, firts float through some calm pools, then the forst small rapids and the “One Time Rapid”. here is where the action starts. After “One Time Rapid” it is time for the jumps. First a 2m jump and then the 8 m jump.

At the end of the trip you will have to walk out of the gorge back to the vehicle that will take you back the the Adventure Centre.

On this 2 1/2 hour adventure you will get the chance to navigate class 2 rapids, jump off an 8m waterfall and explore the Sabie River Gorge in a way that is only possible in a Gecko.
