While camping at OraBo Fishing is the main activity, having such a great location to the Orange River. As part of the Sandfontein Nature Reserve, there are also paid-for activities which are available.

FISHING - INCLUDED.

Few fishing spots are as serene and enticing as the 25km-long stretch of the Orange River that weaves gently along the edge of the pristine reserve.

 

Whether you’re fishing in the deep pools that swirl beneath tall riverside trees, or whipping a fly rod through the air above bubbling rapids, the chances for success are high.

 

OraBo’s expert guide can take you straight to the best parts of the river, where the large-mouth yellowfish thrive.

 

GAME DRIVES

Let Sandfontein’s rangers guide you to the most spectacular corners of the reserve – from savannahs speckled by the silhouettes of game animals to old mines that still twinkle with semi-precious stones.

HIKING & NATURE TRAILS

Orangey-pink skies often give the landscape around Sandfontein a warm, otherworldly glow, while rivers grind giant grooves into the scorched earth. 

Skilled rangers are on hand to lead private photo safaris and ‘walk and stalk’ trips through the orangey-yellow moonscape.

Extra cost option

 

GUIDED CANOEING

Visitors can take to the water gliding gracefully along the Orange River in a canoe.

 

Fortunately, there aren’t any crocodiles or hippos in the area, and the reserve is completely free from malaria.
