AWF Adventure Centre
The AWF Adventure Center is situated in the Vredefort Dome area close to Parys. The Adventure Center is in and old Quarry where they used to mine Granite. This site has a big Geological value to students of Geology as they can study the surfaces mined.
The quarry has smooth rock surfaces as they cut the Granite out of the Kopje. Some of these sides are 60 meters high and ideal for Abseiling.
The hole is filled with water up to 16 meters deep. Some dive instructors bring their students here for training, as the water is clear if it has not rained for 4 days.
The Adventure center offers a unique venue for adventure activities as follows:
The rafting on the Vaal River is an experience that is seldomly found anywhere else. The river looks like a Delta with millions of islands and streams going through them. The river is graded a class 2 river with a class 3 rapid on it which we will negotiate. You have a choice of a full day which is ± 14 kilometers or a half day which is ± 7 kilometers long. We can set up any length of trip for you. We specialize in taylor made packages.
This site is ideal for adventure racing teams to practice at. The site provides you with the necessary infra structure to test your equipment and get your team to work as a unit.
We have farmers around us that have agreed to let adventure-racing teams onto their property for training purposes. You can practice for a day, a weekend or just come through in the week if your program allows you to.
We have built a 4x4 track to suit the different needs of our clients. The track consists out of three stages namely;
