Guided canoe tours on the Orange River

Experience the Orange River in the rough nature of the Richtersveld from a comfortable Mohawk canoe or rubber boat with Amanzi Trails.

The Orange River is one of the few rivers in Namibia with no crocodiles and hippos. The canoe trip is completely safe and meanders through breathtaking gorges of the Namibian and South-African border area. The river trip with some shallow rafting spots is conducted on the calmer parts of the river, making it also suitable for children from the age of six years and older people.

Passing fields of grapes and rugged mountain ranges of the Richtersveld the river safari continues towards Aussenkehr, a grape farm in the middle of the Aussenkehr Nature Reserve. Numerous aquatic birds and birds of prey (over 100 different species are found along the river) can be seen during the river safari. Otters, klipspringers and vervet monkeys and many other mammals are spotted frequently.

All meals, from dinner on the day of arrival to breakfast on the last day, are prepared by Amanzi rails. This also includes coffee and tea. Other drinks and snacks can be purchased at the base camp. Everyone should take along 4 liters of water per day.
