More about Orange River Gorge - 4D, 5N

Starting near Pofadder in the Northern Cape, this section of the river is arguably the best on the Orange River and 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. The scenery is awesome with highlights being the Orange Gorge and the Richie Falls – the second highest waterfall on the river, after Augrabies. This area has been designated as pristine wilderness and of extreme biodiversity importance and it is our privilege to be able to share it with our clients. At high water, it becomes an exciting whitewater trip. We use inflatable two-person boats that are easy to paddle and steer. We also have rafts that are very stable and perfect for less confident paddlers (dependent on water level – medium to high level only). Our standard trips are four days and five nights long - we camp for three nights on the river and spend two at the base camp. Three day - four-night trips are also available and longer expeditions can be arranged for group bookings.
