Sakkie se Arkie Orange River Cruises, Upington

Take a leisurely sunset cruise down the Orange River on Sakkie se Arkie.

The Kalahari is famed for particularly magnificent ‘desert’ sunsets, and even though you are in the river and surrounded by the verdant fields and vines of Upington, the distant sand particles in the air help catch the light and create fire god sunsets that go very well with a chilled glass of bubbly…or a brandy and coke.

Indulge in pure relaxation, visual pleasure and birdwatching as the light falls on the banks of the Orange River.

The cruises last two hours and are open to all ages, though the bar is no under 18’s.

Sakkie se Arkie also offers a number of other family oriented activities at ‘base’ – from accommodation, camping, fishing and a swimming pool to luxury bus tours of Upington and river ferry services.
