Umkulu Vioolsdrif


... is located in Richtersveld in the Northwest of South Africa.

Set just downstream from the main N7 road crossing into Namibia at Vioolsdrif, this place is the basecamp for Umkulu, the leading operator of rafting trips down the Orange River.

This is a seriously remote part of the world and these 3, 5 or 6 night trips are a fantastic experience, rafting and walking through pristine landscapes, bush-camping on the river bank in the evening.

Umkulu Vioolsdrif is where these trips start and end, the expeditions being picked up from the far end by truck. If you are outdoorsy and really up for an adventure then this is a really great thing to do.
