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 wilderness of the Richtersveld.
