Welcome to Khamkirri, where adventure and nature meet
Our River camp base is on the northern bank of the Orange River near Augrabies in the Northern Cape’s Green Kalahari region where the cool waters of our magnificent river provide a welcome respite from the region’s arid landscape
The river is the life force of the region and flows languidly westwards through this landscape of contrasts. The combination of the vivid red Kalahari Desert soil, the thundering roar of the Augrabies Falls and the abundance of xerophyte desert plant species provide the natural beauty of our rugged region.
Khamkirri also offers event hosting such as conferences, weddings and corporate team building and our hospitality and beautiful setting will ensure a memorable event.
Khamkirri has organized and hosted numerous Adventure Events in the past. These include Extreme Marathons, Adventure Races, Mountain Bike Races as well as Horse Endurance Races and Canoe Marathons.
The most memorable of these was the Global Extreme challenge that we did for American Adventure Productions. This multimillion dollar event was broadcasted on OLN and ESPN.
Currently we are the organizers of the Green Kalahari Canoe Marathon which is one of the most successful river marathons in South Africa.www.gkcm.co.za
We offer river rafting and kayaking as well as a wide range of other river and land based adventure activities. Our facilities are family orientated and there are plenty of activities to ensure that your visit is both exciting and memorable for adults and children of all ages. While we provide adventure and relaxation for corporate, business and private clients, our goal is to ensure that they all have fun at Khamkirri, the adventure destination of choice!
During the past several years Khamkirri has played host to location shoots for numerous TV and Film productions in the past. These include a series such as ER and I Shouldn’t Be Alive for Discovery Channel.
Our proximity to the Augrabies Falls, Riemvasmaak and other local attractions also makes us an ideal base from which to explore the greater Green Kalahari area.
As the day’s activities slow, our magnificent sunsets reflected in the river set the tone for relaxed, balmy evenings. A visit to Khamkirri promises an unforgettable outdoor experience in our unspoilt, rugged landscape.
