6 Day Orange River Rafting Richtersveld

6 Day Orange River Rafting Richtersveld

The 6 day orange river rafting trail will take you from our base camp through the Nababeep Community & Richtersveld community reserve.  Over the next 6 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.

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.

The Richtersveld is a great combination of rafting and relaxing. We float along the Orange River and explore the hiking trails of the Richtersveld. It is not a race. It is rather an outdoor expedition suitable for all with no experience. Our guides will be responsible for your safety down the Orange river. All our meals are organically grown and freshly prepared on open fires. On our 6-day rafting trail, there will be a resupply point on day 4. We will receive fresh supplies and drinks for the remainder of our river trip.

This 6 day Orange river rafting trail is suitable for the adventure seeker that want to explore the Richtersveld region. Camp on the banks of the Orange River and indulge in star gazing.

We do cater for vegetarians. However, we do recommend to bring your own food if you are following a strict diet. Our Guides will assist with the preparations of meals.
