Hadeda Creek is situated on the banks of the Vaal River, nestled in the Vredefort Dome UNESCO Heritage Site, just 15km outside of the popular tourist Free State town of Parys. We offer various outdoor and indoor activities, of which our River Rafting offering is quite unique to the area, offering the best collection of family-friendly rapids from our put-in point through to our take-out point at our camp. This journey is executed to the highest level of safety, adventure, and fun by our trained facilitators, river guides, and staff. These standards have been cultivated over the last 30 years of operation.

We are proud to be one of the best Adventure Camps for Schools!  We offer various packages including a host of fun, character-building activities that challenge the students, allowing them to apply life skills, be part of a team and showcase leadership abilities. We also customize programs to suit specific outcomes and objectives and to align with syllabuses that enable the students to practically apply what they are learning in the classroom.

We recently had the most amazing experience at Hadeda Creek. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by the most friendly and accommodating host Cara and her husband. Their warm welcome truly set the tone for the entire stay. The facilities were top-notch, with everything impeccably clean and well-maintained. The glamping tents were spacious and beautifully laid out, providing a perfect blend of luxury and nature. The attention to detail in the layout of the tents was impressive, offering a comfortable and inviting atmosphere while still allowing guests to feel fully immersed in the natural surroundings. One of the highlights of our stay was the serene and safe area where the resort is located. Surrounded by picturesque landscapes and stunning natural beauty, we felt completely at ease and connected to the great outdoors. The fishing opportunities were fantastic, and we had such a relaxing weekend next to the water. It's the perfect getaway for anyone looking to unwind and reconnect with nature while still enjoying the comfort of upscale accommodations and friendly, attentive service. We can't wait to return for another unforgettable escape!

Wow, what an awesome experience! From arrival to departure, the Managing couple, Greg and Cara, as well as Matt, were amazing with their hospitality. The 4 units we stayed in were clean, and they even went out of their way to add more cutlery to the main cottage, which we used as our main gathering spot. The river rafting experience with our 2 very qualified guides, "Tricky Ricky" and Siya, was fantastic. Their effort, passion and patience to a fairly inexperienced group (ages 7 to 62) was exemplary! Thanks to all of the staff for making our family "birthday" getaway weekend a blast! We'll DEFINITELY be back!
