How many can sleep at the camps?
We can sleep 56 sharing at Round the Bend in fixed chalet accommodation and an additional 150 sharing in tented accommodation with shared ablutions.

What if I have a larger group than that?
We have accommodated groups of up to 200 guests at both camps, however the extra people need to accommodated in tents that we out source, hence an additional charge. The tents are very nicely done, with carpets, beds, tables + lighting.

Can some of my group stay at the camp, whilst everyone else is on river?
Yes.

Is there a bar at the camps.?
There is a licensed bar at Round the Bend Camp and guests are not permitted to bring their own drinks or a corkage fee will be imposed.

What other activities can we do at the camps?
We offer a range of activities for groups. Ranging from abseiling, to survivor
series, to raft building. For open trips, the guides will decide what options to offer,Â
depending on the abilities of the group, the height of the river, the weather etc.

Can my special diet be accommodated?
Yes it can, but we need to know your requirements prior to the commencement of
the trip.

I have done the river before. Can I book which stretch I would like to do?
You can put in a request. However the final decision must be made on the day by
the guide in charge. It depends on the ability of the group, height of river, timeÂ
available etc.

No.

Can I use my cell phone at the camps.?

What grade is the river?
The river is grades 1 and 2. in other words fun for the whole family.

What is the best time of year to go?
This depends what you are looking for. The river is at its highest in the winter, so if you are looking for a river adventure the winter, and early spring in the time to go.
During the summer, although it does always flow, the river is very low. During these months, it is much more a case of fun in the sun. Lots of time for swimming, water fights etc.

What is the minimum group size that I can book for ?
6.

Can we have exclusivity at either camp, even if we don’t fill it?
You can only definitely have exclusivity if your group is 45 or bigger
