Best section and top Orange River Rafting Company
Paul started the Orange River white water rafting business in 1994 after paddling various rivers. There was no question that a rafting operation should be started on the best section. Word got out after he took a couple of students rafting and that is how Bundi River Adventurers quickly became known as the best student outdoor rafting adventure. The aim at the time was to pay for his studies at the University of Stellenbosch. Soon after graduating, he spent four months at PWC before resigning in order to pursue his newfound dream. As a result, he switched his focus from paying for studies to offering safe experiences on the Orange River at a value for money.
About Orange River Rafting
A panoramic view of amazing natural beauty untouched by man offers a breathtaking contrast of the flowing river and granite mountain backdrop. During your trip, enjoy sunny days, dramatic sunsets, relaxing campfires, and a night under the stars.
River Rafting is one of the most healthy, adventurous, and exhilarating activities of the nineties. No experience is necessary to enjoy this activity. It is a unique experience rafting down the Orange River surrounded by natural beauty and the sounds of the fish eagle taking flight into the blue below. Silently drifting through Namibia’s most diverse and stunningly beautiful stretches is the perfect retreat from the city.
One of the Best Experiences in Namibia
Located in Southern Namibia along the banks of the Orange River, Bundi Base Camp is just a short 10-kilometer drive from Noordoewer. Early pioneers used the old River Rafter base camp to explore the Orange River Rafting and Canoeing route. This route is now used through the Richtersveld. Aside from en-suite chalets and campsites, we also have an on-site ablution block, community kitchen, lounge area, and a large recreation hall. On hot summer days, the river is a nice place to cool off, not to mention the fields for kids to play on. All guests have access to safe open-air parking.
Among the most important factors to look at when booking a rafting trip is the safety record. Up until now, Bundi has not had any serious rafting accidents. Although we’ve had accidents, none of them were related to water or rafting. These accidents both resulted in broken arms: one from an accident with a toothbrush, and one from an accident with a cooler box. We also had a badly damaged nose and ear, caused by a rugby ball.
The local guides make the best guides
Almost all of our workers and guides reside in Southern Namibia and we are committed to developing the community around us. Since they grew up on the banks of the Orange River (Gariep), you can learn many fascinating stories about the river from them. Guides in our company have years of experience. Some have roots dating back to 1995. Every two years, Bundi River Rafter guides renew their first aid certifications and undergo swift-water training as well, but their pièce de résistance is that they are all fantastic cooks! Enjoy their delicious meals while exploring the magnificent Orange River.
Bundi River Rafters believes in keeping the river and banks clean of dumping. Our guiding principle is to no-tolerance for littering and to no-glass on the river because we strive to keep the natural environment as pristine and delicate as possible. Since the beginning of the project, we have organized several rafting excursions to clean the river banks and remove waste. Because of this, we ask that visitors leave Namibia as they found it. If you do this, you will guarantee that the next person will see Namibia as the absolute jewel that it is. Adding to a wonderful holiday rafting experience.
A remark from a client: “My entire soul is filled with a wonderful serenity. While floating on the River, I enjoyed the sweet days to the fullest. My dear friend, I am so happy, as i was so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence. It truly rejuvenated my sole.”
