This isolated part of the Richtersveld makes you feel like a real adventurer. We take all the food we need and prepare meals over open fires. There are no designated campsites. We start our day with an early morning paddle. In the afternoons, we will stop for a picnic-style lunch and enjoy the tranquillity of the river.
We have time to relax in the late afternoons and even hike in the mountains. All our camps are natural areas along the river, and we respect the ecosystem by taking all our refuse with us. We will p provide you with a complete packing and kit list. It is essential to have the proper preparation guidelines when joining a river rafting adventure on the Orange River.
