The Full Day Trip starts at our campsite – “FIDDLERS CREEK CAMPSITE”. Our cam is situated on a small farm on the South African Bank of the Orange River. We are just 10 km away from the border post on the gravel road. Our camp is equipped with clean ablutions, flushing toilets, electricity and bar facilities. Your vehicle will be left at the campsite for the duration of the trip and we have a safe for your valuables.
Here you are met by your guide. He/she will assist you with the indemnity form, lifejackets and a waterproof drum to keep your belongings dry. Your guide will then do a safety speech – don’t worry, no paddling experience is needed.
We launch from our campsite and start our day’s adventure. Here you will have a chance to see the birdlife that the Orange offers us – kingfishers, fish eagles, and so much more. Your guide will gladly share some information on the area.
You can expect some fast flowing waters and stunning mountains. There is a jumping rock waiting for the brave!
The trip is very relaxed. No rush. You’re welcome to bring your camera – there will be enough time to take photos and to get out of your boat and take a swimming break.
Half way your guide will stop at a suitable bank for you to relax and have lunch.
After lunch you will hop back in your boat to enjoy the rest of your journey.
This trip is approximately 14km and the duration is 4-6 hours.
We will get out at our take out point where a vehicle will be waiting for us. We will load the equipment and drive back to our campsite.
Make sure you bring your sunscreen, hat, camera, sunglasses, swimsuit and enough water!
*We also have a full day with lunch – let us know in advance if you want this option.
*We do not have card facilities at our campsite, cash only.
