Half Day River Rafting


Activity Description

The day starts with a transfer to our launch point a few kilometers upstream. Here you are met by your guide who will give a safety speech. We paddle about 7km back to our basecamp. You can expect a peaceful time, paddling through the “green belt”. There are no crocodiles or hippos, but we do have birds, water monitors and much more which the guides will gladly share some interesting information on. Throw a wave at the locals from both Namibia and South Africa as they sit on the banks and fish. Sit back in your boat and float gently with the current as you realize this is one of the many “Heavens on Earth."
