Xtreme Airboat Experience – Crocodile River, Gauteng


If this is your first time in South Africa or if you are a local looking for a fun and exciting activity to enjoy in the great outdoors, we can assure you that no visit to Gauteng is complete without an airboat adventure on the Crocodile River.

What is an Airboat?

An airboat, also known as a fan-boat, is a flat-bottomed vessel propelled in a forward direction by an aircraft-type propeller; and powered by either an aircraft or automotive engine.  Airboats are a very popular means of transportation as well as a vessel used for fishing, hunting, and eco-tourism .

Sliding along the river….

Your guides will provide a pre-departure safety briefing before you board your airboat and set off to explore the beautiful Magaliesberg gorges. Enjoy feeling the wind in your hair and the sun on your face as the airboat skims the surface of the water and zips down the river.  From this unique vantage point, you will see new and unique plants and wildlife while your guide regales you with fun facts about the area.

Our Ride & Slide Combo is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a day out on the river with your family and friends. Why not make a day out of it and enjoy a Gourmet Picnic for Two – set up in a tranquil spot next to the river. Watch abundant bird life while you enjoy our delicious cuisine and enjoy the beautiful river view.

Zoom around the river with our Xtreme Airboat Experience – enjoy a fun ride and the rush of the slide as you take in the sights along Gauteng’s most popular playground.This is sure to get the adrenaline pumping
