Kloofing is a strenuous and dangerous activity, requiring experienced kloofers and a knowledgeable guide. Weather conditions can change quickly, so check the forecast and avoid starting if rain or poor weather occurs. Wear a wetsuit, carry food, emergency gear, bring warm clothing, and be prepared for a long day. Cape mountain water is dark and underwater hazards can be invisible.
Safety is our number one concern, therefore all hikers/kloofers who want to experience Suicide Gorge and Riviersonderend must be physically fit, have a lot of experience, have an adventurous spirit, in possession of the required gear and it is highly recommended that you go to Suicide Gorge with a professional adventure guide who has done this before.
