5 day Orange River Fishing Trail, Richtersveld - DOWNLOAD DETAILED ITINERARY

Our aim is to explore and discover the Richtersveld desert reserve with all its hidden treasures and trails. Our days are spent with early morning paddling, floating, swimming, bird watching and negotiating some rapids and fast flowing water. Our camps on the trip will be along the river edge and we will follow the ethics of eco tourism along the river.  Departing our base camp head to our adventure with just the bare necessities prepared for days of wild camping to follow. The section of the Orange River that we raft has rapids grade 1 to 3 – it is not hectic “white water rafting” like the Zambezi. This is an “entry level” river, so only a moderate degree of fitness is required. We take children from 5 years’ of age to adults in their 80’s on the river with us.

All our Orange River Rafting trails start and end at our base camp (“The Growcery”) situated on the banks of the Orange River, on the South African side of the river. Facilities at base camp include:
Pristine ablutions consisting of hot and cold showers and flush toilets
Grassed campsites, permanent tented and chick shack accommodation
Fully stocked bar facilities, electricity, washing up facilities, braai area
Safe parking and an incredible view of the Orange River
Catered meals, braai packs, ice and wood sold at camp
**Please note no credit card facilities or ATM at base camp
