The Ash river just outside Clarens in the Eastern Freestate is fed by the Trans Caledon Transfer Tunnel, which pumps water from the Katze dam high up in the Maluti Mountains in Lesotho. The crystal clear water flows down the Ash river all the way to the Vaal dam.

The day starts with a short drive out to the river, where we do a safety-brief and explain all the do's and don'ts for the days rafting action. Then we get on the water, practice getting back into the raft,just in case someone does fall out, and then within a few 100 metres from the start we hit the first rapid called "Breathiliser"!

After "Breathiliser" it's action all the way with grade 3 rapids like "Car-wash", "Alles-verloren" and "Alles-gevonden" untill we get to ?!? The Bridge! Here we get out and have a look at the high-light of the day. An awesome grade 4 rapid with the name "Fish-pond rapid". After running "Fishpond" we'll gather on the rocks next to the rapid, have some refreshments, and contemplate the wiseness of our actions! Then it's back onto the rafts for more adventure. Next up is the weir. Quite something!
