Gravity Adventures - Tubing: The coca-cola coloured waters of the Palmiet tumble through the fynbos-clad slopes of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve about an hour’s drive from Cape Town. A friendly stream in summer and autumn, while winter rains turn this river into class 2 and 3 whitewater fun. Gravity is equipped to run the river at all levels – we use one person ‘gekos’ (tubes with a floor and handles) at low levels and inflatable ‘crocs’ or rafts at higher levels.
