4 Day Orange River Rafting

The 4 day Orange River rafting is a very popular adventure trail and suitable for the whole family.  The perfect outdoor activity for the adventure travellers. This Orange River rafting adventure was voted as one of the best value for money adventures in South Africa. We invite you to come and experience our unpolluted night skies. The Richtersveld offers unique rock formations and is home to many semi-precious stones.

You are welcome to pitch a tent or sleep under the stars, near our bush fire. Take the slow road towards the Growcery in the Northern Cape and escape into the wild wilderness of the Richtersveld. The Orange River rafting tour is one of the real adventure trails on offer. Feel the flow of the river and meander through the mountain gorges. We make our wild camps on the banks of the river.

We recommend that all river rafters arrive at Base camp no later than 5 pm on Day 1 of the Trip. Our team will meet and greet your arrival at camp. We will have a briefing at your designated campsite, where your guides will brief you on the final preparation of our river rafting trail. Our dinner is prepared on open fires and we will have our last hot showers, before embarking on the river rafting adventure in the Richtersveld.

Valid Passports & Unabridged Birth certificates for minors.

Our Base camp The Growcery is 22km from the border post inside South Africa. Our Adventure will start in South Africa and end in Namibia. We will then be transported back through Namibia and over the Border back to the Growcery Camp. No Client will be accommodated without their passport or unabridged Birth certificates.
