The best paddling on the Orange River offers a variety of conditions, from flat water with flowing channels, lots of exciting small rapids and a few ‘big ones’ to get the adrenaline flowing.
South Africa has a coastline that stretches more than 2500 kilometers, making for plenty of ocean facing spots to hammer in your tent peg and set up camp. If your idea of heaven is waking up in your faithful tent, sand beneath your toes with the sound of the waves for company, then here are a choice of beach camps waiting for you!
A river safari where you float down the river in your houseboat (or tender boat if you're on a day expedition) with the engine turned off makes for a really tranquil game view experience.
For something completely different, this riverside adventure is a healthy combination of action-packed fun and tranquil time spent surrounded by nature. Umkulu Safari & Canoe Trails have been leading Orange River Rafting tours in the rugged beauty of the Richtersveld Desert for nearly twenty years!
