2-Day Wet and Wild

Our 2 Day Wet and Wild adventure is the perfect safari and river rafting combination. This is a full day of activity, experience, and safari. We will start our day at 09:00 am with a transfer to our rafting starting point. We will either make use of sit on top kayaks or inflatable two-man rafts. The selection all depends on the water levels of the Orange river on the day. The morning on the orange river will offer some fast flowing water with beautiful scenery. The magnificent Birdlife adds to the surroundings. The Richtersveld is well known for rock formations and semi-precious minerals.

The first part of our trail starts meandering down the ‘Great Orange’ river. During which you will be viewing an array of bird life, paddling and negotiating rapids while primarily being amazed at the setting, relaxing in the sun and cooling off with a swim in the river. After enjoying lunch on the side of the river, we make our way back to camp. At camp, you can relax while your guides are preparing dinner.


What to expect on a 2-Day Wet and Wild

Day two of the trail is into two parts. First, we will go for a guided hike in the Richtersveld, see striking rock formations and caves, and get to see what the Richtersveld has to offer up close and personal. The second leg of the day will take us on a thrilling 4×4 trail into the Nababeep Conservancy. Explore the geological wonders and diverse collection of fauna and flora, many of whom have adapted in different and unique ways to survive this desert environment.

We once again leave the mountains behind and slowly make our way back to camp for a beautiful bush-style dinner under a magnificent star-studded sky, the perfect ending to an exceptional experience.

The Richtersveld community reserve, namely the Nababeep community reserve is 3km from our base camp. We will be packing the cooler box and embark on our customised safari vehicle. The road is rough rocky terrain, and a car with high clearance is best. This part of the Richtersveld is home to some of the local indigenous succulents and fantastic rock formations. We explore the ‘halfmens ‘ and quiver trees, along with a variety of plants.

This is an excellent opportunity to experience the only mountainous desert of South Africa. The desolation of this rugged desert will leave you speechless at the best of times.

The ancient petroglyphs are always a great visit and allow for discussion and mythology of the Nama-Khoi people.
