The 6-day Orange River rafting adventure 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 adventures in Southern Africa. The Richtersveld is well 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.
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 Basecamp 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 Dinner is on open fires, and we have our last hot showers before embarking on the river rafting adventure in the Richtersveld.
Our Basecamp The Growcery is 22km from the border post inside South Africa. Our Adventure will start in South Africa and end in Namibia. We will be transported back to Namibia and over the Border back to The Growcery camp.

There will be a resupply on the morning of Day 4. You can arrange for ice, drinks and other supplies. The trip will end at 07:00 am – 3:00 pm on Day 6. Our Departures will all depend on the water levels and nature's variable elements. This rafting trail is an adventure, and life can be unpredictable.
Due to COVID19, the borders are closed between South Africa and Namibia, or they are open with the condition of a PCR test 72 hours or younger.
With that taken into account, the water level is much higher this year than any previous years due to the rainfall and the tropical cyclones that hit South Africa.
We will accommodate 6 Day Trails in December 2021 again.
Any custom dates of your choice in December 2021 and 2022 are welcome to get booked.
