Full Day River Rafting

Full Day River Rafting on the Orange River is the perfect adventure for all travellers visiting the Vioolsdrift and Richtersveld regions of the Northern Cape. Our Full Day River Rafting trails will start and end at The Growcery Camp.

Our Full Day River Rafting will take you along a scenic route on the Orange River. You can expect some fast flowing waters, excellent birdlife along the river and beautiful mountain views. It is suitable for all ages, and no previous experience needed on this day trip. This is an introduction to the Orange River and Richtersveld region.

The Rugged Richtersveld Mountains is full of old volcanic activity. The Richtersveld is known for semi-precious rocks. The adventurous paddlers can attempt the jumping rock. The bird lovers won’t be disappointed. The fish eagles roam this part of the river, and a call of Africa is welcomed on most trips.
