Full-Day Orange River Rafting

This Full-Day Orange River Rafting trail is a perfect one-day adventure in the Richtersveld. The full-day trip will start and end at our base camp, The Growcery. The exerience is perfect for those that have no previous paddling experience who want to ease into it.

Our team will supply all rafting equipment and transfers to the starting point upstream.  The point of departure varies, all depending on the water level of the Orange River.


What to Expect

We start our day at 9 am and depart from our base camp to the launch site. We will load our rafting gear and prepare for the day of adventure that awaits our paddlers. The Full-Day Orange River Rafting trail passes some farms and spectacular rock formations. The section of the river is the last part before entering the Richtersveld community reserve.

We make use of two-man inflatable rafts. Paddling along the river is the best way to relax and discover the ecosystem of the Richtersveld desert. Our day is filled with some rapids and fast-flowing channels. The reed beds along the river provide the perfect ecosystem for an abundance of birds. It is not uncommon to hear the call of the fish eagle or to stumble upon a Goliath heron.

Our lunch will be a picnic-style meal on the banks of the river. This adventure is perfect for the whole family. A minimum of 2 people secures a departure.
