Orange River

The Orange River forms the southern border between Namibia and South Africa.

It is an area of outstanding beauty, and draws a wide selection of tourists.

The river itself is a huge attraction, and canoe trips here are very popular.  There are multiple day trips that we can organise, but also half or full day trips, or even a gentle paddle.

It's location, right on the border, makes for a good stopover point between Namibia and South Africa, whether just to rest up for an evening after a long drive, or take a day or two to recharge the batteries.

Below are a selection of our recommended accommodations.

Our consultants can book these as part of an itinerary, or as a standalone accommodation booking.
