Orange River Kayaking

Join our 7-day Orange River Kayaking adventure this season. Kayaking is one of the best ways to embark on an expedition. We load up or kayaks, plan our route and embark on an unforgettable river adventure. This trail takes us through the Ais-Ais / Richtersveld Transfrontier Park. Our Kayaking trails are perfect for small and private groups.

The trail starts at The Growcery Camp and end at Sendlingsdrift. This kayaking adventure will take you on a 215 km journey through the Richtersveld Transfrontier Park. The Richtersveld is well known as the only desert mountain range in South Africa. This adventure is rated one of the ultimate outdoor experiences in South Africa.

Orange River kayaking trails are suitable for paddlers with a moderate level of experience. The kayaks are sit-on-top kayaks and you are welcome to bring your own kayak. We divide all the equipment and meals amongst our paddlers. We have designed a highly efficient power food menu to give us the maximum energy from our meals. There are few adventures as satisfying as this paddle through the desert.

Our camps are on the banks of the Orange River and we stay together in our group to explore all the rapids, channels and challenges of this adventure. Our experience guides will lead the kayaking trip.

All paddlers need to check in no later than 5 pm on Day 1 at The Growcery Camp (click for map). This evening is set out for introductions and the final arrangements for our kayaking trail. The last preparations will happen on this day, and the following morning we will set out after breakfast. Each paddler will be responsible for packing their kayak.
