Gravity is an extension of our lifestyle and we run it the way we run our lives – with hard work, lots of fun and an emphasis on the important things in life like kindness, family, friends and respect.
What We Do Adventure! We take you just that little bit out of your comfort zone and into a place where you will connect with nature, your friends and family, and, most importantly, with yourself... Micro Adventures Always innovative, Gravity offers a variety of micro-adventures close to our bases in Cape Town and Onseepkans. Coasteering near Boulders, Simons Town – rock jumps, snorkeling, and swimming. Sea Kayaking and Day cruises in the West Coast National Park. Whitewater Rafting in winter and Tubing in summer on the Palmiet River in the beautiful Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. From our base on the Orange River, we offer rafting day trips in the desert. Our newest adventure is River SUPping – our stable inflatable paddleboards are a great platform for a day out on the river.
Multiday Wilderness Tours This is where you unplug from modern-day life and relax. The Orange River Gorge in the Northern Cape trip offers desert rafting at its best whilst the Maluti Meander showcases the mighty Orange nearer its source. The Doring near Clanwilliam delivers a weekend of whitewater action whilst the iconic Zambezi needs no introduction. All trips are run as self-contained expeditions and lead by our professional guides.
Group Adventures From corporates to schools, we will tailor-make an adventure to suit your needs and budget. A morning on the water, a day on the beach, or perhaps a fully-fledged multi-discipline adventure program or team build, we will make it happen.
Accommodation Our portfolio includes Indigo Blue Beach House and Baby Blue Beach Cottage, on the beach in Langebaan as well as Baby Blue Too, our cute and cozy houseboat. Further north, Red Rock River Camp offers a tranquil campsite on the banks of the Orange and – coming soon – a self-catering cottage on the water’s edge.
Training APA, IRF, and NQF accredited training and assessments for paddling guides. Whether you are looking for a gap year, vacation job or a career in adventure, our training courses, and industry-relevant advice will get you started.

My son and his girlfriend enjoyed the experience. I unfortunately fell ill on the day and could not participate. I want to do the paddle when you can accommodate me Regatds Les McCall Cell. 0825565282
Les Mc Call experienced the Simon’s Town Penguin Trail
We were a group of 10 people ranging from 12 years to 50 in age and everybody really loved it. The unknown when you jump into the kelp to the assistance from the gravity team and obviously also the cold of the water which is always very invigorating. I recommend this to anybody who wants to see a different side of our beautiful coast.
Victoria Engelhorn experienced the Exploring the Cape’s Coastline
The kayak paddling on the lagoon around Schaapen Island was wonderful, almost 2 h of paddling fun together with our guide Hugo. The explanations were excellent, the wildlife on the island and under water stunning. We can highly recommend it!
