  • Description
  • Facilities
Khamkirri is a river facing accommodation facility and camp, located on the banks of the Orange River offering the thirsty traveller a lush oasis on the green northern banks, with breathtaking vistas of the water and surrounding red Kalahari.

The calm river, with the occasional rising fish, can be seen from our sunset deck that belies the excitement and adventure of the river rafting trips that we offer. On such trips, you will meet our rapids named Whiskey, the Big Eddie, and Rhino, and these will certainly get your adrenaline pumping in the company of our experienced guides. Alternately, you can just hang out on the deck overhanging the river and watch it glide slowly.

Our comfortable facilities provide an ideal stopover to visit other attractions in the area, such as the Augrabies Waterfalls National Park a mere 45 km drive away, Riemvasmaak Hot Springs, as well as other destinations such as the Richtersveld, Namaqualand, the West Coast and Namibia.

Khamkirri offers a range of accommodation options and activities for the outdoor adventurer. We offer rustic river huts as well as camping facilities with fully- equipped ablutions. They include toilets, showers and basins, hot water and electricity. Our abundance of wildlife that often rest in the shade of our Camel Thorn and Quiver trees, makes for a very memorable breakaway.

Was baie rustig, lekker gewees. Was net onder die indruk dat dit by Augrabies was.

19 May 2014

We had a ball @ Khamkirri the reception were great we received from Allen and his staff. Thumbs Up!! We explored the uniqueness of the North Cape and from the BRAVO & SIERRA TOUR GROUP we survive the heated NC. The river rafting was awesome and so refreshing so we will re-visit the province and it`s warmhearted people.

Sleeping in a luxury tent overlooking the Orange River, what an amazing experience it was!

The bathrooms are in a state of despair and needs attention and needs to be kept clean at all time. Apart from the nice river tours the pace needs attention and the bath rooms are to small for all the visitors.

The facilities are shabby and run down, ladies showers not working properly. Had a good meal though. Could at least have fans and mosquito nets in tents. Weather was so hot could not sleep and even with mosquito repellent got carried away by the bugs. So unpleasant left at three o'clock in the morning as could not take the heat and the mosquito and bug bites. Setting is great and owners could do a lot more with the facilities to make them guest friendly and make them better with a few small changes as mentioned. Over priced for what you get...would not recommend.
