YEP 12 Africa Expedition – Day 8
Blog written by Robert and Anika
We woke up early next to the Orange River this morning, excited to spend a day on the river that separates Namibia and South Africa. After tightly strapping our gear to two person rafts and getting a brief orientation, we padled off with the current.
The day was broken up by exciting runs thrugh rapids, exotics monkey and bird sightings, and testing the purity of the water in the Orange River. After arriving at our camp, we hiked up to a nearby ridge for a beautiful view of the river, surrounding rocky mountains, and a family of baboons climbing a nearby mountain.
We can't wait to run more rapids and explore more of this beautiful landscape tomorrow.
