The Growcery Camp Richtersveld


Growcery Camp Richtersveld is situated on the Orange River banks and neighboring the Richtersveld and Nababeep community reserves. We use this eco-friendly campsite as a base camp for all our river rafting and kayaking trails.

Our no-nonsense and straightforward bush camp atmosphere will provide you with luxury in the bush.
