KIDS ABSEILING and RAFTING
"I planted my feet on the wet rocks, the water poured down my legs, slowly released the rope and slid down step by step. It seemed to take forever to get to the bottom and at one point I slipped, grabbed the rope with both hands and scrambled to find my feet. When I finally got down, I was greeted with high fives. "Rappelling" was successful. It was my first waterfall!
I am still impressed with myself as I slowly and carefully descend the waterfall!"
Rappelling down waterfalls, also known as canyoning, is a great activity. If you're not a seasoned extreme athlete, don't worry. You don't need to have any experience and it's quite affordable.
Abseiling is a popular sport in the tropics. The water is wonderfully cool; not cold. You get wet from the splashing water. You are well leashed and you slowly descend from the 15 meter high waterfall. It is not intended to be done quickly. Abseiling is a bit more difficult than it looks and it takes some getting used to. Beforehand you will receive a demonstration, in which the instructor will show you how to abseil with wide spread legs, slightly bent knees and a curved spine.
The water falls with great speed from a height of 15 meters. Follow the instructions of the supervisors carefully. They are friendly and knowledgeable. They take good care of you.
