Camps - Orange River.jpg
Namkwa new logo for website.tif

The official campsites along the route are all in very special locations, with all four Namakwa Package sites on the banks, or very close to, the mighty Orange River. The two Richtersveld Package sites are not on the river, however they are are both splendid camps too.

Remember these are all 'bush camps' with no bathrooms, taps or electricity, therefore you need to be totally self-sufficient. See our tips on veld toilet, and remember to bring your own fresh water, firewood and portable power. 

 

There’s a certain captivation that comes from sleeping in the wild under the stars, waking up beside a river or inside a cave with no fences or buildings in sight. The free-roaming feeling, the open fires and escape from your electronic devices are refreshing and regenerating. 

Get back to awe-inspiring nature in seclusion at one of these private spots.
