About this Event

The Wallangambe Canyon is the perfect way to cool off in summer and have fun!

On this trip we cliff jump, slide and laugh through the canyon. 

This is a moderate canyon to immerse yourself in the fresh beautiful waters of the area. You don't need any previous experience or rope handling skills. We will take you through the skills to make your way through the canyon safely.

* The canyon is easy to float down on your packs (provided) and is suitable for beginners.

The hike into the canyon and out of the canyon is graded 4 (moderate to hard). This means it's a steep walk in and out. It will involve loose rocks and moving over larger rocks to make your way into the canyon. 

  • Walking in takes 1 hour
  • The walk out takes 1 hour

We advise women are comfortable walking in wet clothing and steep sections of trail. A good level of fitness is required for this trip as it's a long day, but very doable!

A full day of adventure with us includes a delicious lunch and snacks, and all adventures include modern and top of the line equipment to ensure that you have the best possible experience.
