VIOOLSDRIFT – RICHTERSVELD


“RECYCLE – RE-USE – UPCYCLE”

Visit the Growcery Camp for all your GOODS, REST & SERVICES.

Take the slow road, drag your feet and let us help guide your Richtersveld Desert Experience.

THE GROWCERY – ONE OF A KIND

The Growcery Camp is located in the Richtersveld of South Africa and the Northern Cape. The Camp is  situated on the banks of the Orange River and a mere 22 km from the border between Namibia and South Africa.

It has become a popular retreat for travellers passing through on their road trips. Take off your shoes and wet your toes in the Orange River, whilst viewing the mountains of Namibia. Select your campsite and feel the grass under your feet. Take full advantage of our fresh herbs and spice gardens while planning your meal.

Join us for our freshly cooked meal of the day, or indulge in a campfire in our eco-campsites. Look up and enjoy our 1000 star accommodation.

We welcome your recycled contributions and keeping your organic buckets intact. You are welcome to water our trees during your stay.

Our Australian cattle dogs will provide you with entertainment and keep you safe, as long as they are the only attention seeking K9’s at camp. You are welcome to indulge in any of our Adventure Journeys on offer. Escape the cyber world and plan your “getting lost” in the Richtersveld.

Wake up in the morning, select your river craft and feel the flow of the Orange River. Take your SUP (Stand up Paddle Board), kayak or raft and escape into the wild. 

Enjoy an Orange River overnight experience under the stars, relaxing next to your campfire. We invite you to select your own private or public campsite.

Explore our “Upcycled Chic Shack Accommodation” or come back when the Twin Rooms are done. If it is a luxurious lifestyle you seek, you have found us. If it is luxurious and decadent accommodation you seek, you have lost us.

We would like to encourage you to take your sweet time and consider getting lost at the Growcery Camp.
