Home / Adventure / Whitewater Kayaking / Watch: Raw Kayaking Experience On The Molenaars River – Western Cape
by Jason Boulle | Jun 24, 2022 | Whitewater Kayaking
The Molenaars River is nestled between the big mountains that form the DuToit’s Kloof Pass. The river has an extremely small catchment area and is often paddled in rain, hail, snow or a combination thereof. This video serves as a real feeling of being in a boat on the Molenaars in Winter.Ruan Kotze
