The river trip includes a substantial picnic lunch and two refreshment breaks at selected spots on the banks of the Crocodile River. Apart from the excitement of the rapids, the river winds through beautiful scenery in the vast Rhenosterspruit conservancy that is unusually pristine given its close proximity to Johannesburg and Pretoria.
The cost is R800pp (minimum two guests) and includes the following:
- All equipment including two-person, purpose built inflatable white water rafts, paddles, life jackets and helmets.
- The river trip will be led by professionally trained guides who have been operating on the river for eight years.
- Transport will be provided back to Ibis at the end of the trip.
- A picnic lunch that includes the freshest products from Woolworths.
The trip is about 16km long and takes between four and five hours to complete including an hour for lunch.
Mobile Adventures provides the option of a 25m abseil down a sheer cliff face onto the banks of the Crocodile River at the end of the trip. The cost is R300pp.
The Crocodile River is graded as a Class 2 making it suitable for anyone with no previous experience but
with enough rapids and wave trains to ensure a thrilling experience.
All guests will be provided with a comprehensive safety briefing and paddling practice before starting the trip.

The Labyrinth @ Ibis – A Walking Meditation...
It is an eleven circuit medieval design, like the one found in the Chartres Cathedral in France. Inspired by Mike Burnett, an accredited veriditas Labyrinth facilitator who built his labyrinth at Celtis Lodge in the Magaliesburg.
This Labyrinth took two solid months to build. Gundizanee worked sweat, blood and aching muscles to complete this 50 meter wide masterpiece, making it one of the world’s largest Labyrinth. Built from surrounding white quartz rock and removing some hundreds of aloes, which were planted on the outer circle of the labyrinth. The journey in and out is just over 2kms.
The official opening ceremony and blessing was on 21 Dec 2010 by Mike Burnett himself. This day was chosen as not only was it a full moon but a lunar eclipse and the summer solstice. Not only were the cosmic powers with us that evening the divine animal spirit came to life in the roaring of the white lions from a neighbouring farm.
A bowl of Rose Quarts is found at the entrance to the Labyrinth, take one in your receiving hand (the less dominant hand). Release whatever you need to release, be it worry, question or whatever, on your journey to the centre. At any stage you may want to place your stone down. Once you are in the centre, remove your shoes, sit on the bench with your feet on the large rose quart pebbles and just be. Absorb this healing energy, allow it to consume your entire being. And when your ready start your journey out, this time open yourself up to receiving.
The labyrinth is a metaphor for life. It has been around for over 4000 years. They exist all over the world. They bring spiritual healing and resolution, be it emotional, social or mental blocks and they help enormously for grief. They are non-dominational. They are unicursal ie only one way in and out, much like life. Physiologically the winding path brings balance to both left and right hemisphere of the brain.
Showered in the divine 3rd Ray of Unconditional Love - enjoy the healing energy while you enter this sacred space.
