Orange River Rafting 3 day

The  3 day Orange River rafting tours are some of our most popular family holidays. The Orange River is the largest river of South Africa. We raft arguably the best section, called the Richtersveld. Whether you raft or canoe on the Orange River is up to you. There are pro’s and cons to each type of boat used.

Approximately 680km north from Cape Town, you will arrive at our private base camp where you will meet your guides. A bush kitchen, as well as flush toilets, hot showers, and hot water, are available at the camp. A lot of clients upgrade for the first and last night to our en-suite rooms. 3 day

The Tour:

On the Orange River raft excursions, you will experience one of the most spectacular wilderness experiences in the world as the scenery is breathtakingly beautiful with the desert mountain range of the Richtersveld. Besides the mountains rising majestically on either side of the Orange River, this natural beauty has remained untouched by mankind. Families will enjoy visiting this region due to its unique ambiance. Please contact us for special family and group bookings.

For the Orange River rafting expedition, the minimum age is 5 years old, while the canoeing adventure has a maximum age of 6 years old. The reason for this difference in age is that the inflatable crocs that we raft with is more stable than the Mohawk canoes. We do not wear helmets as the biggest rapid is only grade 2 however helmets are recommended from grade 3 rapids and up as per The International Rafting Federation.

Depending on how strong the river runs you will either exit at the Fluorspar mine when the water level is low or at Aussenkehr if the level is high. Your trip will include beautiful scenery, friendly guides, exciting rapids and full catering from the arrival evening until the departure morning.

Besides your safety, scrumptious meals and our professional guides, your river rafting adventure will leave you with a lasting impression of Africa’s magic.
