Hosting and guiding the Graham family was an absolute treat and the 5 girls kept us entertained all the way on our Orange River Rafting expedition. The flow of the river was also extremely forgiving with hardly any paddling required and a number of nice (but safe) large rapids as we descended down river on our rafting expedition.
This Full Moon expedition was in stark contrast to our normal star filled night sky. The Moon however illuminated the canyons and mountains and gave us a wonderful display in the night sky – its amazing how everything just seems to come alive at night.
We also in addition to our normal rafting expeditions took some much needed time to sample the Orange River Water Quality – With a sample net in hand we collected Aquatic Invertebrates and with the help of Mark from Ground Truth and an illustrated guide book we started to identify the invertebrates – the more invertebrates are found in the sample the better the water quality – Very interesting!! Herewith is also a link to the website….. I cant wait to sample this section of the river again on our next visit.
Our next expedition will be in November 2014 – contact us if you would like to join as we have limited space available.
Part of our Orange River Rafting expedition travels through the spectacular Orange River Gorge. Most of the expedition is easy runnable white water s.
Deep in the Kalahari, the river cuts through a moonscape of granite cliffs with the amazing Gariep Falls tumbling into the Orange River Gorge.
We run downriver over several days. Our Camp sites along the river are as unique as the experience. Join us now for an unforgettable experience.
