2-Day Wet & Wild Adventure

The 2-Day Wet & Wild Adventure is the perfect short stay adventure in the Richtersveld. We combine a rafting experience on the Orange River with a 4×4 trail in the Richtersveld. The 2-Day Wet & Wild Adventure starts from The Growcery Camp in Vioolsdrift. It is the perfect adventure for people with no prior experience in river rafting or 4 x 4 driving.

Guests arrive no later than 5 pm on the first day. We spend the evening around the campfire and take some time for our final preparations. The following morning we will depart on our full day of river rafting after a delicious breakfast. Lunch will be a picnic along the banks of the river.

The Richtersveld provides us with some of the best celestial skies. The remote area allows you to have an authentic experience of the area's natural beauty. You will experience the rugged mountains of the Richtersveld desert and the thriving ecosystem along the Orange River. Discover why the Richtersveld is one of the unique landscapes in Southern Africa. This is the perfect nature and adventure combination. The experience is ideal for our travellers and visitors that seek a short stay adventure.

Each of our Orange River Rafting Trips has a unique itinerary if you want to opt for a different experience in the desert.
You are welcome to design your own experience, and private trails are possible.
