Day 1 on the Orange River!

Setting off on the Orange River


We set off from basecamp on Day 1. The river was amazing - very peaceful (certainly no "white water" components). We spent the first night in Namibia. After climbing out of the boats, pulling them up the embankment we made camp. Little did we know that where we were sleeping was actually a walk way for the goat herders. The next day we found that they actually walk faster than we raft :o) There is always a token English guy on trips like this ... who brings his own tent! And who incidently wears a Batman outfit to raft down the river! The rest of us slept under the stars and rafted in our swim-suits!
