Bring and Braai Float Trip

Recommended Posts

A Float trip is an event where you get dropped 6 or 12 miles upriver and float down on a raft.

The raft can hold 4-6 people and a cooler box with beer/snacks/water. Your job is to row every now and then to avoid floating onto the sandbank.


As part of the event we plan on camping at the river over the long weekend, and have a South African DJ coming to play anything from techno, rock, sokkie, boere musiek and what not.


The resort where we are planning this event have their own set of entertainment for that weekend so it is our job to get them to conform to the African way by taking over, as only we know how.


There is no hall and there is no swimming pool at the resort. The dancing is out in the open and the swimming is done in the river.



When: Memorial Weekend (May 23-25)

Where: Near Tahlequah, Oklahoma
