4-Day Orange River Rafting

Join our 4-Day Orange River Rafting trail through the Richtersveld. This trail is a more relaxed river rafting adventure and suitable for people without any prior experience. Our 4-Day Orange River Rafting will start at our base camp, The Growcery Camp, 22 km from Vioolsdrift. We paddle down the river and get picked up near Aussenkehr farm at the end of the trail.

 

What to Expect on Our 4-Day Orange River Rafting Adventure

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

We take all the food we need with us and prepare meals over open fires. There are no designated campsites. 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 and we respect the ecosystem by taking all our refuse with us.

We will provide you with a full packing and kit list. It is essential 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, when our guides will welcome you upon arrival. Our evening will be spent having dinner, preparing for our adventure the following morning and relaxing around the fire.
