Canoeing Section

The Magnificent Ritchtersveld section

We operate on the Richterveld section. River canoeing or rafting trips through this section offer an unimaginable experience. We chose this section of the Orange River because of its sheer magnificent natural wealth and scenery. This gem lies nestled between South Africa and Namibia between the Richtersveld Mountains. Our section of the river is fed by dams higher up the stream, for agricultural development; they regularly release water which means we almost always have enough water for an unforgettable canoeing trip. The river is grade 1 and 2. This means nothing too big and scary and is suitable for the entire family.
