The Orange River, one of South Africa's major rivers, is truly one of the purest adventure trails in Southern Africa. The Gariep River, or Great River as it is called by the local Nama people, offers a unique outdoor experience to those who seek tranquility and adventure. The Orange River cuts through the Richtersveldt Desert Reserve and is now part of the Transfrontier transformation parks. Days are spent with early morning paddling, swimming, floating, bird watching and negotiating some rapids and fast-flowing water. Guides will take you through the steps of paddling through rapids, hiking and in general discover the eco system of the desert.

Reviews for Frontier River Resort
Baie mooi en heerlik gekuier ...
Luxury air-conditioned tents overlooking the Gariep River. Each tent has its own bathroom. The supper and breakfast provided was of good quality and there is bar available. Very nice experience overall.
Great place, quirky but nice, food lovely
This is a great choice for those one-night stays at the Vioolsdrift border. The tents are nice and warm, but a little noisy when it is windy. The wardrobes are unfortunately mostly broken. The host are very warm and friendly.
A tad expensive but nice
"a very nice stay"
Although we arrived late, we received a most friendly welcome from our hosts. The tents were immaculate with quality furniture, so was the bedding as well as good and beautiful towels. The shower was brilliant, with little pebbles under your feet, it felt like a foot massage! The equipped lapa was a winner!!! Definitely worth as stayover on/back from the beautiful Namibia.
Great place, great people.
