Our family of five had the best time of our lifes. It was such a great experience. Thank you Marius and your team for an amazing time. I am going to miss the delicious food that Matt, Jan and Devon prepared everyday on the trip.

My wife and I had an absolutely amazing time with Orange River Rafters doing a trip from 12-17 November. We got such a full bodied experience. We got to fully experience the wildlife of the area, switch off our phones and disconnect, and completely immerse ourselves in our surroundings. None of that would have been possible without the organization of Marius and our superb guide Matt Francis. He did absolutely all the hard work and allowed us to really enjoy the experience. The catering was excellent. Matt was also able to give us all some knowledge and insight into the history of the region, the people and the river itself. It really made us appreciate the rich beauty of the area even more. The Richtersveld is a very special place and I would absolutely recommend this trip, the company, Orange River Rafters, and our guide Matt to anyone! If you're on the fence about going....DO IT! It's absolutely worth the money and the time! I will never forget my experience and my wife and I will absolutely do this trip again. 5 star service all round! Well done guys.

Words can't describe how much I enjoyed this trip, even at a ripe 65years. Every single moment was just pure joy. It was superbly organized and the food was beyond amazing. Apart from being a brilliant cook who kept on surprising us, Matt, our guide, is a walking encyclopedia and shared his unbelievable knowledge of just about everything with us. I can highly recommend this adventure to anybody.

Charmaine Weber

This was my third trip and the first with this operator. Definitely the best trip! So well organised, super friendly guides and way too much great food. The stars at night are a sight to behold. Can't wait for another trip

I did the “Henkries” adventure with a group of 8 friends. We had a fantastic time. Peaceful, beautiful, some excitement and lots of relaxation. Marius was very welcoming and kind. The two guides who accompanied us, Matt and Devon, were great. They took good care of us on the river and in camp, as expected. But they also went out of their way to make it a special time for us — bringing more firewood before going to bed when they saw we were in the mood for a late night, passing around chocolates at the perfect moment, and even taking two of us through a crazy rapid when our boat mates decided better to give that one a miss. I hope to see you guys again!

I am not sure what new I could say about the most amazing experience with Marius, Matt, Jan-Harm and Devon recently. Totally spoilt now with the excellent food prepared by the guys, being looked after, feeling safe, the security and company of Mufasa, brilliant starry skies, peace that pervades the soul, companionship...and the adrenaline rush at times. I am near 70's and so glad I did not miss out on this opportunity. Just do it

Sarie Podges
