5 Day Orange River SUP and Yoga Adventures
Shaking up the spirit of adventure by combining rugged, under the stars, expedition style SUP (Stand Up Paddling) with yoga and guided meditation, in the wild.
Beginners of both SUP and yoga, most welcome, this one is specially for women.
A never-before kind of adventure, supping about 60 kilometers of the mighty Orange River bordering Namibia and South Africa, surrounded by one of the most striking landscapes Southern Africa has to offer.
Imagine 5 days (4 nights), on a freshwater SUP built for easy river paddling and cool rapid handling.
The Richtersveld Wilderness Camp, the last and most remote camp in Vioolsdrift is where we will meet and gather to talk about what to expect on the River, prepare for our launch and enjoy a campfire meal together. The next morning we travel to our launch point at Henkries and off we go into the wild. For the next four nights we will sleep under the stars, totally unplugged, you, your SUP, the River and a few more incredible women to share it with. Some days we have quite a distance to paddle to camp, other days comparatively little allowing some time to luxuriate and let the heat melt our worries and solar energy infuse our bodies.
Yoga is at sunrise or sunset depending on the day and this will be a time to deeply relax, and connect with yourself in the environment.
Our experienced guides will take care of meals, on days we need to get on the water early, breakfast will be simple and wholesome, other days we might even have flapjacks. Lunches are simple and light with dinner being our biggest meal. We love food that feels as good as it tastes and offer you the freshest and simplest ingredients possible for a delicious and hearty meal to share.
The 5 days on the water are at first a casual meander into a truly awesome environment and flow into a playful, expanded connection with your body, your whole self celebrating the beauty your’e now really in.
A connecting, celebrating, sexy, challenging, gritty, exploration into the wild within and the wild outside.
