AWARD WINNING ECO CAMP

THE GROWCERY – ONE OF A KIND

At The Growcery, we like to live green. We welcome your recycling contributions to our recycling bins. We have created a lush ecosystem around the camp that is both beautiful and functional. You are welcome to take full advantage of our herb and spice gardens while planning your meal.

Our Australian cattle dogs will provide you with entertainment and keep you safe, as long as they are the only attention-seeking canines at camp.

You are welcome to enjoy any of our adventure activities on offer. 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.

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

It has become a popular retreat for travellers passing through on their road trips. Here you can take off your shoes and wet your toes in the Orange River, whilst viewing the mountains of Namibia.

Join us for our freshly cooked meal of the day, or make a campfire in our eco-campsites. Remember to look up and enjoy our thousand star accommodation.

Enjoy an Orange River overnight experience under the stars, relaxing next to your campfire. You have the option to select your own private campsite, or to share with other guests.

Explore our upcycled Chic Shack accommodation. If it is a down-to-earth lifestyle you desire, you have found it. If it is luxurious accommodation you seek, you have lost us.

We would like to encourage you to take your time and escape reality at the Growcery Camp.
