The gecko-tubing trip starts deep in the gorge at the beginning of the Great Letaba River and takes you through tranquil crystal clear waters with breathtaking views and some roaring white water rapids. Our experienced river guides will check your equipment and guide you safely down the river. Cliff jumping or climbing down the ladder at the waterfalls adds to the adventure.

Discover a magical place where the mountain meets the river, and the spirit of adventure is born – Magoebaskloof Adventures (previously Thaba-Metsi Adventures). Situated between Polokwane and Tzaneen, our adventure center is an ideal stopover en route to Kruger Park, a family holiday, a corporate teambuilding getaway, or a day out.


Deep in the gorge formed by the Letaba River in Magoebaskloof, you will begin the adventure of a lifetime.  Bright yellow Gecko Tubes await to carry you through crystal clear waters, leading you towards the roaring white-water rapids.   The first leg of your journey is a pleasant and peaceful meander down the river, giving you enough time to admire the dramatic scenery of towering cliffs and indigenous vegetation.  As the gecko tube picks up speed in the water, your adrenalin matches the pace, so when you hurtle over the waterfall or down the rapids, you feel pure exhilaration.  If you want more excitement, there are optional jumps that are not for the faint-hearted.
