THE GROWCERY CAMP
The 9-day Orange River rafting expedition is by far one of the more exciting trips to join. This rafting trail will start and end at The Growcery Camp. The Orange River is the longest river in South Africa and river rafting is one of the best outdoor adventures in Southern Africa. The Richtersveld is known as a rugged and geology-rich mountainous environment.
This is one of the only Mountain Desert regions in the Northern Cape and South Africa. Join our team on the river rafting experience of a lifetime. This river rafting adventure is suited for paddlers with no experience. It is the perfect adventures for the whole family. The 9 Day Orange River Rafting Expedition is one of a kind and it is a true test for adventure travellers. This is the perfect escape into the wild Richtersveld. You will discover the hidden treasures of the Richtersveld and the Orange River. The 9 Day Orange River Rafting Expedition will start at Our Base Camp and end at Sendlingsdrift in the Richtersveld.
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 dinners are prepared on open fires. We will have our last hot showers at the Growcery Camp, before embarking on the river rafting adventure in the Richtersveld.
Our Base camp The Growcery is located 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.
