The Xama Fish Eagle River Camp is situated on the banks of the Breede River approximately 24km from Swellendam. Re-opened and renovated after the November floods of 2008. We are now open again offering river rafting packages, team-building and a relaxed camping atmosphere for those wishing to get away from the busy city life. B&B camping and DBB accommodation available too. We even have our very own "Mama Xama" pizza oven with mouth watering pizza, breads and treats on request.

This is the perfect week-end or mid week getaway venue for family, friends, corporate market, schools and sports teams. Our river camp has a lush green grassed campsite over-looking the Breede River. Clean ablutions with piping hot showers, and a lapa over-looking the campsite with views of the river. A central braai area, lounge area, tables and benches, gas stove and electricity available. The camp is fully grassed with plenty of shade, a plunge pool for the "little" ones and a safe river swimming area. Braai drums and grids are available for self catering campers.

Standard Breede River Rafting Package

Arrive at our Xama Fish Eagle River Camp where you are welcomed by our Xama River Crew and shown around the camp before setting up your tents and settling in to a relaxed evening around the fire while Xama's Chefs create a mouth watering meal for you and your friends. Dinner is served at approximately 8h30pm. The rest of the evening is for your own leisure.

The following day we awake to the sounds of the resident fish eagle's and enjoy a healthy breakfast as the sun rises over the Overberg. We are transported upstream to our put-in point where we will have a safety briefing before embarking into our vessels and spend the day negotiating some rapids, soaking up the sun and enjoying the peaceful environment. Lunch is enjoyed on a sand bar. We arrive back at camp at about 15h30, where we can relax on the grass and laugh around the fire about the days events. Once again the Xama Crew will prepare a mouth water feast for you to enjoy.

Today we enjoy a little sleep-in while the crew prepare a full farm style breakfast. After breakfast one can relax and enjoy the camp, take a scenic walk (we have two trails available), go fishing for the morning or explore the surrounding area on route home.
