Parys is known for being an adventure mega destination and the best place to start your adventure is with river rafting! River rafting on the Vaal is a great stepping stone in preparation for bigger rivers.
Sunwa offers a variety of day trips under the supervision of qualified and well-trained facilitators. Specially designed inflatable rafts, renowned for their safety, comfort and stability, are used for rafting. Protective headgear and personal floatation devices must be worn at all times for own safety.

River War Games

This is the most extreme paintball war game challenge that can be offered to you and your friends. This activity takes place on a dam, were each team will be provided with a 2 man inflatable raft equipped with a mount that can hold your paintball gun as well as a target at the back. “Sink” the other teams’ boat in order to score points. The war goes on until the last team is standing. The other games that can be played are :

  • S.W.A.T.
    With this activity the groups need to free as many hostages as possible without getting “killed”. The more hostages freed, the stronger your team!
  • Capture the Flag.
    Capture the flag is almost the same as S.W.A.T., but you must get the flag from the opponent’s base without being “killed” and at the same time protect your flag
