The Bushmans 2 Day Wild Water Tour has since my time in the sport and I'm sure long before that, been the primo whitewater event in KZN. Maybe not the biggest or the most flashy but definitely the event that does the most honorable job of promoting the whitewater lifestyle here in KZN.
To date as far as I know it has always been organised by river legend Hugh Raw. If you have not heard much about it over the years it's probably because it gets marketed through the CSA / KNCU race calendar. It's an all plastic, all raft affair and definitely no racing.
It's the most social whitewater kayaking event arranged for the whole family in KZN, and on one of the most famous river stretches in the country.
This year Liquid Adventures are taking the reigns together with Hugh which is exciting and a welcomed step for the future of the event, I think.
If I may just take this opportunity to say a BIG thanks to Hugh Raw for all he has done for whitewater paddling through this event and his other trips. It is very very much appreciated and your selfless efforts have not gone unnoticed. (I for one would probably not be paddling were it not for Hugh.)
Many, many thanks Hugh.
