Farmers, realising the value of irrigating the area, bought 12 000ha of land from Edwells in 1916. In the same year, 63 plots were surveyed and taken up. A 10km canal serving 70 families was built by Japie Lutz and, today, citrus, lucerne, beans and other crops are grown at Onseepkans. The village itself is a mission station run by the Roman Catholic Father of Pofadder.
Our Orange Gorge trip is a world class multi-day wilderness rafting trip with amazing scenery, great birding, exciting paddling and, most of all, a complete wilderness experience.
We regularly run courses and assessments from our base at Wild Paradise River Camp in Onseepkans as well as from various other venues.
