Spend a sunny morning on the picturesque Goukamma River. Open to the sea, the lagoon supports diverse habitats & an abundance of wild life. You might paddle beneath the watchful gaze of resident fish eagles, enjoy the antics of the shore waders and perhaps take some time to relax and sun yourself like the darters.
We take a break in a shady spot to enjoy a paddlers snack before heading back towards the sea. There are fascinating rock pools at the sea side of the reserve, with beautiful beaches to chill on and picnic sites upriver. This is the perfect place to spend a lazy day, that’s after we’ve got you to work up a sweat, you’re welcome to spend all day soaking up the sun at Goukamma reserve after the canoe trip.

A very professionally run outfit, so rare in the current climate. From enquiry, to booking and through to the actual experience, 5/5, our company members thoroughly enjoyed ourselves...everyone's still talking about it... well done guys, keep it up, and see you again one day.
I have travelled the world and used over 50 adventure companies, and i have never had a company keep 50% of my money because i cannot make the activity, especially with over 5 months notice.
People deserve to know that once you have paid this company whatever the circumstances, you will not be getting your money back. well maybe some if you argue with them.
Just finished the Drakensberg Grand Traverse with GoVertical. What a wonderful experience. Garth's passion and knowledge of the Drakensberg is legendary. Ill definitely see you again for a trek in the Garden Route.
Very experienced guides and looked after our every need while in the mountains. Highly recommended.
GoVertical really showed us a great time whilst exploring the Drakensberg and the Tsitsikamma Mountains. Thank you again for a wonderful time in South Africa
We spent days with the Govertical team exploring trails on the Garden Route. Fantastic guys. Thank you
