4 Day Orange River Rafting

4 Day Orange River Rafting

Join our 4-day orange river rafting trail through the Richtersveld. The 4-day orange river rafting trail is a low-impact river rafting adventure and suitable for people without any prior experience. Our 4-day orange river rafting will start at our base camp. Our Base Camp is the Growcery Camp 22 km from Vioolsdrift and ends at Aussenkehr farm.

We sleep on the banks of the Orange River. We explore the Richtersveld Mountains and enjoy the great outdoors. You are welcome to relax outside next to the fire or in your tent. The isolated part of the Richtersveld makes you feel like a real adventurer.

Our River Rafters will transport the food in food buckets on each raft. There are no designated campsites. We will explore the banks of the Orange River. We start our day with an early morning paddle. In the afternoons we will stop for a picnic style lunch and enjoy the tranquillity of the river. In the late afternoons we have time to relax and even do some hiking in the mountains. All our camps are natural areas along the river. All meals are prepared freshly on open fires.

We will provide you with a full packing and kit list. It is important to have the right preparation guidelines when joining a river rafting adventure on the Orange River. We recommend that you arrive at our base camp no later than 5 pm on the first day. Our guides will welcome you upon arrival. Our evening will be spent listening to a final briefing before we embark on our adventure the following morning.

We are Protecting the Environment:

We do not allow glass or glass containers on the river trail. Please decanter all glass content to plastic bottles.  Our Travellers will transport all waste back to our base camp. Please decanter supplies to plastic containers or make use of cans.
