Half Day Rafting

Half Day rafting on the Orange River is a great adventure for the whole family. It is the perfect short stay adventure trail on offer.

We set our sights on introducing the Orange River to our day and en-route visitors. Our trails are ideal for the novice but yet accommodating to the adventure seeker within all of us.  We kick off with an early morning cruise down the Orange River, jumping off cliffs, paddling and floating while talking in the perfect desert setting. The orange river has a great variety of birdlife. You can spot from fish eagles to herons and kingfishers. The reeds are very active with waterbirds and nesting bishops.

The Richtersveld mountains offer spectacular views.

Half Day Rafting 

  • Trail distance: approx 12-15km.
  • 1-3 hours; no lunch, own drinks.
  • Transfers to our starting point.

These Half Day Rafting trips are suitable for all travellers without any previous paddling experience. It is a great introduction to rafting and river rafting on the Orange River.  Our team is experienced and knowledgeable about this area. The ancient rock formations and semi-precious stones are a highlight on our half day rafting trail. This is a fun day on the Orange River and a very relaxed way to experience the Richtersveld.
