River Rafting on the Orange River
Join us for a unique Orange River Rafting trip. It’s an unforgettable experience with 4 days on the river and we camp 3 nights along the river.
Experience a unique orange river rafting adventure with SA Forest Adventures. It’s more than just a river trip!
The starting point is the border post of Onseepkans between Namibia and South Africa. Our Orange River Rafting trails are owner run and we love rafting the Orange River Gorge in South Africa as this is one of the most untouched pieces of nature you will probably ever get to experience.
We never exceed the 18 guests per River Rafting group – to give you the best experience on the river. We love to have small intimate groups on the river as it also has less of an environmental impact, with more attention to our guests. Our group sizes can however be larger if you’re a corporate or a school group or just a large family.
This section of the river also provides for ample fun with white water rapids and spectacular campsites.

What to expect on your Orange River Rafting Trip?
We run downriver over several days. Our Campsites along the river are as unique as the experience.
The Highlight of the Orange River rafting trip will be the camping and portage into the gorge itself and once at the bottom of the Gorge, we paddle a few meters up to where we see the Waterfall dropping into the Gorge itself.
Here we will lower everything into the Gorge +/- 40 meters down to the River below the Waterfall. The Orange River Gorge is a very remote destination and is only accessible by foot or rafting. It is one of the most undisturbed sights you will ever witness. This experience will be one of the highlights of our expedition if not your life.
We will also spend some considerable time “monster fishing” and if you don’t know how to fish one of our experienced guides will assist you.
At night around a small contained fire, we will look up at the stars and experience a sight unlike you have ever witnessed.
You can also book for the December School holiday trip or June – July School Holiday trip

More about the Orange River in South Africa
The Orange River begins 10,800 feet (3,300 meters) above sea level on a plateau, or raised, flat area, in the mountains of Lesotho. The plateau lies between the Drakensberg mountain range and the Maloti Mountains. In Lesotho the Orange River is called the Sinqu (or Senqu) River. In the area where the river rises, the rainfall is about 32 inches (800 millimeters) per year. However, where the river flows into the sea, at Alexander Bay, the annual rainfall is less than 2 inches (50 millimeters). Source: Britannica Kids
