Aktivitätsbeschreibung

Explore the Orange River Gorge and experience extreme thrills with the range of whitewater activities!

You'll start near Pofadder in the Northern Cape, this section of the river is arguably the best on the Orange River and offers a variety of conditions, from flat water with flowing channels, lots of exciting small rapids and a few ‘big ones’ to really get the adrenaline flowing.

At high water your outing will becomes an exciting whitewater trip. Gravity Adventures use inflatable two people boats that are easy to paddle and steer. They also have rafts that are very stable and perfect for less confident paddlers (dependent on water level).

The standard trips are three days and four nights long - you'll free camp for two nights on the river and spend two nights at the base camp. Four day, five night trips are also available and longer expeditions can be arranged.
