About Fiddlers Creek

Fiddlers Creek campsite is the base camp for Bushwhacked Outdoor Adventures. The campsite is located in Vioolsdrift, on the banks of the Orange River in Namaqualand. Nestled on the banks of the mighty Orange River, Fiddlers Creek campsite is an oasis ideally situated for travellers from both South Africa and Namibia, and is a base for Orange River rafting trips and 4x4 excursions into the Richtersveld.

With 200 metres of waterfront on the river and fourteen grassed campsites, Fiddlers Creek is in essence a bush camp equipped with modern facilities. Each site features an undercover kitchen, basins with running water, counter tops, lights and power points, and a built-in barbecue area. Some of the larger sites also have large tables and benches as a permanent fixture under the roofed area. We all appreciate privacy when we camp, so with that in mind, almost all the sites have been enclosed with a reed fence.

Breakfasts, lunch and dinner are available if booked in advance, with a minimum group size in mind. Our speciality is our spit braai, where we will endeavour to find your meat of choice. Complemented with home-baked breads on the coals, scrumptious salads and desserts, no one goes hungry at Bushwhacked.

We spent 2 nights at Fiddlers Creek on our way to Cape Town. The place is neat and clean and the staff are very friendly. We really enjoyed spending time there and would definitely recommend it to friends.Thanks again for a wonderful service.

We stayed one night and loved the big campsites, with our own shaded kitchen area, electricity and dining table -overlooking the beautiful Orange River. We enjoyed the friendly dogs, having sundowners on the jetty below the pub which is also very quirky and vibey. The hot water in the showers was the only complaint - either too cold or too hot. We would like to go back and stay longer

We recently stayed at Fiddlers Creek - our first and last night of our Namibia trip. It is very scenically and conveniently located on the Orange River,10km from the border post. The sites are spacious, grassed and have their own kitchen facilities. We had only two complaints - firstly, the showers. The water pressure is either non-existent or high pressure hose strong while showering. The water is very, very hot, so it is really quite scary. A jet of scalding water blasts out unexpectedly - really quite dangerous for small children. It is a pity because it is really the only negative aspect...
