River Rafting Trips on the Orange River, South Africa.

From its birth place in the Lesotho Highlands, the Orange River makes its 2200km journey through spectacular topography towards the Atlantic Ocean forming the border between South Africa and Namibia. 

It is a river with a history of important water schemes, dams and diamond mining but for those who love the outdoors it is a river made for rafting adventures, for nights around a roaring fire under a star-studded sky, for floating languidly one minute and charging through white water the next. Moving through the baked but beautiful landscape with the chance of spotting game along the river banks, only the occasional mournful cry of a Fish Eagle and your paddle hitting the water will disturb the deep silence. You will feel the weight of the world seep out of you.  In safe inflatable boats with skilled guides, this multi-day adventure is suitable for the intrepid traveller as well as the whole family.
