“Little piece of heaven”

Keurbooms River Ferries
Ranked #5 of 20 Tours in Plettenberg Bay
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 December 2009

We hired a boat and took our 3 year old up the Keurboomsriver this morning- it was magical!
There was no wind, so the reflection on the water was too beautiful!
We reccomend going early, as we literally had the river to ourselves for half an hour (this is peak season, nogal!).

There are quite a few small embankments to stop off on and our son LOVED it :-).
The boats are easy to maneouver, in good condition and well worth the price.

We'll definitely do it again when we come back

Fun in the Sun, that is how I would describe our trip with Keurbooms Ferries. I must say that I have done this trip on various occassions, as it is definately something that we always do when comming to Plett, however this time we deceided on something different. Keurbooms Ferries also rents out small self drive motor boats. They rent them on a per hour basis, supply you with life jackets, petrol and all safety equipment. There are picnic tables and designated braai areas up river, so we decided to spend a couple of hours in Nature. Well, words can not explain how relaxing it is up there, we were the only people on the river beach. There is a proper toilet, but just remember to take lots of drinking water, as there is nothing else up there. I would recommend this a hundred times over.

We decided to try the keurbooms river ferries self drive boats and have to say what a great time we had. Renting it for the afternoon and getting a quick tuition from the owner we set off and leisurely made our way up the keurboom river stopping for a picnic lunch before returning. It allows you the freedom to navigate the river at your own pace and stop at various places and was a ideal way to spend a afternoon.

What an amazing trip to do, my husband and I found this trip to be one of our hightlighs while down in the Garden Route area. I can not explain the scenery that you can see along the Keurbooms River. I have traveled along the N2 for many years and everytime I cross over the Keurbooms Bridge I always wonder what is up there. Well, if you have not done this trip yet, I strongly recommend you do so. We were told to pack our picnic and bring along the swimming gear. I must say I was impressed with this info, as normally you reach a place and wonder why nobody told you to bring certain things along. So off we went on the trip fully prepared. We really received a lot of info on the guided cruise, as well as seing a really rare bird (White Backed Night Heron). My husband being a birding expert was really impressed with the fact that we could get so close upto its nesting area. Once we stop of deep into the forest, we wondered off on our own with our picnic and had a lovely swim in the river. It really is an amazing tour to do, and would strongly recommend that everyone in the area do this tour before going home. This trip will stay in my mind for many years to come.
