Must love the outdoors, don't mind the heat, sandy shores and lots of paddling. Bring something to sleep on to cushsion some stony beaches, bring fold up chairs to get off the sand a bit, bring a beach umbrella to get out of the sun until it sets. Some people brought 2 man tents along, but lovely to sleep outdoor on your blow up mattress or yoga mat. Otherwise enjoy and make peace with fact that there will be sand on your feet alot!
All in all, the Borton family had an awesome 5 day trip. Positive and enthusiastic guides, amazing and tasty food. What a beautiful trip! Thank you to Paul and Stanley from Bundi River Rafters. We had an awesome experience, a lovely way to see 2024 in 😎

We had an amazing time at river rafters. We went rafting with our young children and it was amazing, one of the highlights of our trip. Food was good and staff friendly. Unfortunately we had some things stolen from our truck before we stayed (not at river rafters, the place before) and Werner was so helpful in helping us contact the police whilst we stayed we really appreciated it. Will certainly recommend.

We recently completed our trip (5 adults/5 kids) on the Orange River. From our arrival to our eventual departure 5 days later we experienced wonderful service and care from the team at Bundi/The River Rafters. Our 4 days on the river was an unforgettable experience. Our two hosts - Paul and Jeremia - made an excellent team. The were attentive and knowledgable and made sure everyone had the experience of a lifetime. The food was very good and ingredients fresh - not one of us ever went to bed hungry! When we do an Orange River trip again, this will be the outfit we will be with again.

Great experience, breathtaking nature, tranquility and rich birdlife.
Our two guides Patrick and Tommy made sure, that it is a trip to remember for a very long time.
We couldnt have asked for a better start to our Namibian adventure!
