You will be taken from our base camp, The Growcery, through the Nababeep Community and Richtersveld Community Reserve. Over the next 3 days you can expect to have spectacular mountain views, fast flowing channels and excellent bird life. The River is graded at level 1 – 3 in difficulty and is suitable for beginners. The Orange River is a pool drop river, ‘which means after every rapid, there is always a pool’. The Richtersveld is home to goat herders trekking through the endless desert mountains. We don’t have designated campsites and camp for the day depends on the progress made that day, where we will choose our overnight spot on the banks of the river. This is a truly great combination of rafting, relaxing, hiking and exploring. It is not a race, but rather an outdoor expedition suitable for all with no experience.
