Covers 10km with a few small rapids and take about 3 hours. The flow of the water determines your speed and there will be plenty of relaxing, swimming and floating.


The full-day trip is similar to the Half Day trip. After having more confidence in your boat and a delicious lunch back at base camp we depart for the next section, which has more exciting fast flowing sections. The trip ends with a small cliff-jump and a stop at Geelkrans viewpoint from where Vioolsdrif’s green fields and kilometers of the Orange River create a picture perfect view.


Starts at ORRL basecamp. After boats and equipment have been packed we make our way down the mighty Orange River towards the Richtersveld Park. We stop at lunchtime where the guides prepare a delicious meal. The afternoon is spent paddling and floating down the river, experiencing beautiful scenery and birdlife. We camp on the banks of the Orange River and watch a breath-taking sunset over the mountain ranges of the Richtersveld. Dinner is prepared on an open fire by the guides. After a relaxed night under the starlit sky and a hearty breakfast the following morning you will be transported back to basecamp to end the Overnighter.

 3-Day rafting trip

Everyone arrives on the evening prior to departure at base camp where you will be welcomed by the Richtersveld hospitality and get a full briefing on the exciting few days awaiting you. The trip covers approximately 35km from  Vioolsdrift Weir to Richtersveldt. After breakfast and packing all the equipment we depart from the base camp where we leave behind our busy normal-day lives to begin our 3-day adventure. We start off with a slow paddle to lunch time. Each evening we set camp under the stars for the next two nights and during the daytime, we enjoy breath-taking scenery, interesting walks, exciting rapids and all that the wilderness offers. All meals are prepared by the guides. On the last day after lunch transport will be waiting to take us back to base camp where we will enjoy supper on the banks of the Orange River. Delicious breakfast before departing the following morning.
