Felix Unite Orange River canoe adventures

Amanzi River Camp - canoeing and river trips

Orange River - Nama Canyon and Fish Eagle section

River adventure on the Orange River through the Nama Canyon and Fish Eagle section is more than merely a river ride. This stretch is perfect for those who have already done our section from Provenance to Aussenkehr. Here you will be transported to Aussenkehr and will be taken out at Sendlingsdrift (for the Nama section) and Fish river mouth (for the Fish river section). The river is similar to the standard section, yet the rock features are awesome and the rapids are slightly different and few more. We will give you days of relaxation, visual beauty, incredible sunsets, nights filled with fun around the campfire and peaceful sleep under the stars. You will encounter exciting rapids such as ''Liquidation'', ''Spook and diesel'', ''Eliminator'' and many more.

Pella Mission to Good House expedition

This is five day adventure on a section of Orange river that has greatest variety of types of river. This section has been opened to try and reduce the impact of overcrowding on the Richtersveld National Park.
Pella to Good House is not a section of the river that the man in the street can attempt without a good possibility of getting lost. Specialised guiding expertise and a sound infrastructure are required to negotiate the complicated maze of channels, rapids and the falls. Twenty years ago, two friends exploring the area each took a different split in the river, planning to meet at the next island. They saw each other five days later in Springbok!
This is not just another river trip, but more of an expedition. By using aerial photographs from a helicopter, it has been possible to chart a route, which has no more risk to clients than a hiking trail.
Pella itself is of considerable historic interest, as it was built by missionaries at the turn of the century. Unbelievably, two Roman Catholic priests actually constructed a Cathedral in the middle of the desert, and without any formal training in building construction.
The concentration of bird life such as Goliath Herons, Bitterns, Rosy-faced lovebirds and an abundance of Fish Eagles in one stretch of water is breathtaking.
The operator supplies the infrastructure and all equipment, including lifejackets, 2 man Mohawk canoes, paddles etc... professional, knowledgeable river guides, excellent five star meals and camaraderie.
First and third Thursday of every month. Minimum of 10 guests. Any less and trips are cancelled with full refunds.
Minimum age is 6 years old.
