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.
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. Our three biggest accidents, since 1994 are as follow:
Lesser incidents experienced: Client standing on the ashes of the previous night’s fire to heat their feet caused third degree burns and a client grabbing the kettle from the fire to pore hot water resulted in blisters on their hands.
Bundi Adventurers has rules in place for all clients taking part in our tours. These rules are to ensure everyone’s safety. Examples of some of these rules are as follow:
Read though some of our frequently asked questions about the Orange River.
We do not advise taking children younger than 5 years of age. There is no maximum age limit, though obviously you have to be relatively fit to do this trip.
The river is grade 1 and 2. This means nothing too big and scary. It is suitable for the entire family.
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.
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 a mere tranquil existence. It truly rejuvenated my soul”
