ORANGE RIVER RAFTING
ORANGE RIVER RAFTING
The 4 Day Orange River Family Adventure will take you from our base camp through the Nababeep Community and Richtersveld Community Reserve. Over the next four days, you can expect to have spectacular mountain views, fast-flowing channels, and excellent bird life. The River is graded at level 1 – 3 in difficulty and is suitable for beginners.
This 4-day orange river adventure is suitable for the whole family. Experience the Richtersveld on an inflatable raft and use the Orange River as the mode of transport. Explore the only mountain desert in South Africa and let our experienced guides lead you through one of the most striking landscapes South Africa has to offer. The perfect outdoor getaway with fun-filled rapids, hiking and discovering the stark beauty of the Richtersveld desert. Sleep under the stars or in a tent.
The Orange River is a pool drop river, ‘which means after every rapid, there is always a pool’. The Richtersveld is home to goat herders trekking through the endless desert mountains. We don’t have designated campsites and camp for the day depends on the progress made that day, where we will choose our overnight spot on the banks of the river.
This 4 Day Orange River Adventure is an excellent combination of rafting, relaxing, hiking and exploring. It is not a race, but rather an outdoor expedition suitable for all with no experience. Our guides will be preparing meals on open fires and guide you safely down the Orange River.
