Rent A boat on the Orange RIver

Overnight Rafting Trail

Our overnight trail is the perfect weekend family getaway filled with unforgettable experiences and breathtaking scenery. This trail includes the popular “cliff jumping” section, swimming and fast flowing water. Enjoy a light lunch on the banks of the river which gives you ample time for taking some pictures of the stark and bare rock formations that reminds you of a martian landscape.

After your day of rafting on the Orange River is a bush camp and you sleep under the purest and the clearest sky next to a crackling fire on the banks of the Orange River. We return to base camp the following morning after breakfast where your trail ends.
