The Richtersveld is a unique desert reserve that shows the signs of old volcanic mountains, the trails of Khoi-San people and the aridness of an unforgiving desert reserve that lives off the Orange River. After a briefing at the base camp, the next few days are spent on the Orange River where you will explore this magnificent desert eco system. Your guides will take you through some fast flowing water and guide you with knowledge and experience to ensure maximum enjoyment of this magnificent River. You will have the opportunity to experience some wave surfing, rapid floating, hiking and fishing that provides fun for everyone.
