ORANGE RIVER
 
ITINERARY AND PLANNING
 

We offer different packages from 1 – 5 days. Tailor-made trips to suit your needs are easily arranged.

Here lies the biggest difference between the various operators on the Orange River. A 4 day rafting adventure differs with every company and product which they offer. Many of the companies call our 3 day adventure a 4 day tour. Be sure to ask whether you get a resupply of ICE (Gold on the hot summer’s days) and how many days are actually spent on river. Our 3 day tour is THREE DAYS on river, returning to base camp on the third day. You then receive supper and you can leave after breakfast on the following day.

In the past we have returned to base camp early on the fourth day. The clients then had to shower and leave after lunch. We found its way to rushed and our clients actually suggested that we change it to our new way of doing it.

3 Day Itinerary
Languid, carefree drifting is what this river rafting adventure offers. For 3 days, you’ll wallow under the toasting sun, sleep under the flawless stars. The only decision you’ll have to make is which side of the boat you want to swim on... So, for absolute self-indulgence, this one comes highly recommended.

Arrival
Arrive at our base camp, just across the Namibian border. Our camp manager will be there to welcome you with a roaring fire. You may want to take a refreshing swim or play a game of volleyball after your day of travelling.

We prepare supper that is served at 7pm. We start getting to know each-other around the campfire and 8pm we give a “packing speech”. Here we show you how to pack your luggage, liquid refreshments and personal belongings. This is a good time to ask all those questions that has been building about what to expect on the river. Your friendly guide will be more than happy to put all your nerves to rest!

Day 1
After an early breakfast, your guide will give you a safety talk and equipment demonstration. Here they will show you how to paddle, what to do if you capsize and how to be safe when in a rapid. Before you go onto the river we shall fill your cooler boxes with ice. You’ll spend most of the morning drifting and getting the hang of paddling! Your first lunch break will be on the banks of the river, surrounded by majestic mountains that will take your breath away. We continue downstream until we find a campsite where we can camp for the night. Sleep under the star-lit heavens.

Days 2 and 3...
Discover what it’s like to wake up in the desert. Later on, you may climb up to an abandoned fluorspar mine. Here you will be rewarded with a huge panorama of the Richtersveldt and Orange River, as it winds its way through the desert.

Each day follows a pattern - languid drifting with the current; hopping in for a swim when you wish; tossing a frisbee; or just lying back and taking it easy. We spend each night at a site of our choice on the banks.

Day 3...
On the last day, we'll be picked up at the end point between 2 pm and 4 pm. A drive through the semi-desert will return us all to Base camp. After a refreshing swim you can enjoy a few sundowners, while the guides prepare supper. You overnight with us in the camp and will be free to leave when ready on the following day..
