The 3-Day Orange River Rafting is the ideal getaway. You will have enough time to enjoy the magic of the river over a long weekend.
On this adventure you will experience the beautiful Orange River while paddling an inflatable raft. You will be led by an experienced guide who will also prepare tasty meals over open bush fire.
The river is full of surprises, including exciting rapids and stunning mountain scenery. See if you can experience the amazing moment when the sun sets on one side and the moon rises on the other.
At night, we will camp on the banks of the river and enjoy star-gazing. Tents are optional! After a day on the river dinner always tastes amazing.

The Orange River is graded as level 1 – 3 in difficulty making it 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. This is a unique sight in South Africa, as it is the last place where you still find traditional nomadic herders.
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.
Valid Passports are required, and no client will be able to join without their passport.
