Our Menu

We provide all meals from arrival evening to departure morning. All the wholesome meals are prepared on the river rafting expedition. We source all our fresh produce locally in Namibia.

We will supply you with our detailed menu in order for you to gage what replacement products you will need to bring. We offer a discount of R200.00 per person with a dietary need we do not cater for.

Location & Itinerary

You will start your trip from our base camp located on the Namibian side of the border – passports will thus be required. We are located about 8km from the South Africa/Namibia Border in Noordoewer.

We will welcome you on the afternoon of the 1st day, spend day 2, 3, 4 & 5 on the river, in the afternoon you return to our base camp. Then, after returning to the base camp, you will depart on the 6th day after breakfast.

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

Supper is served at 7pm. We start getting to know each other around the campfire and 8pm we give a “packing speech”. Here we teach and 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 river. Your friendly guide will be more than happy to put all your nerves to rest!

  • After an early breakfast, your guide will give you a safety talk and equipment demonstration. Here they will teach and 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 you can fill your cooler box with ice.
  • You will spend most of the morning drifting and getting the hang of paddling!
  • Your first lunch break on the banks of the river, with the majestic surrounding mountains 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 above.
  • Your friendly guide will prepare your supper whilst you relax, swim and enjoy your surroundings.
  • Discover what it is like to wake up in the desert. Later on, you may climb up to an abandoned fluorspar mine, where you will be rewarded with a huge panorama of the Richtersveld 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 river banks.
  • All the wonderful meals will be prepared by your friendly guides.
  • You will be resupplied with ice the morning of the 3rd day on river at 9am, Sjambok.
  • On this last day, you will be picked up at the end point at Aussenkehr between 2 pm and 4 pm. Well done, you have rafted approximately 60km on your trip. A drive through the semi-desert will return us all to the Base camp. After a refreshing swim, you can enjoy a few sundowners, while the guides prepare supper. You overnight with us in the camp.
After an unforgettable journey on the river, you are free to depart for home the next morning after breakfast.
