This past Easter I put in some time at the Oribi Gorge, with Adam Gray of Oribi Outdoors.
Adam, and his girlfriend Jenny are new operators at the Oribi Gorge, having just survived their first commercial season under the banner of Oribi Outdoors. They focus on whitewater adventures, mainly rafting and kayaking. Adam does the guidework, and Jenny the logistics.
Although the company is brand spanking new this team are no greenhorns to adventure and group activities. Adam has a wealth of white water guiding experience on rafts stretching over more than a decade on the rivers of the world, and is also a highly experienced kayaker. Jenny has a background in theatrical studies and is experienced in empowering children through group activities in a circus environment. It is seldom that you find a couple with such great passion for people and the outdoors working together towards a common goal.
Oribi Outdoors is a professionally run establishment with some of the best white water out there, in the Umzimkulu River close to Port Shepstone, South Africa.
Anyone keen on some Southern African rafting should drop Adam an email and find out what’s on offer. Its not every day that you find such passion, skill and experience readily at your disposal while navigating one of our country’s prime white water destinations. You can find him at www.oribioutdoors.com and on facebook.
The company operates only in season, starting November-ish every year.
