On the bank of the Orange River. Nice campgrounds. The showers and toilets were good, there is also a small pool and a bar. The lodge also offers canoe trips down the river. There is no wifi, but for one night it wasn't an issue. The manager was really helpful, I enjoyed our stay here.

We stayed in December for 4 nights and loved every moment of it. We swam all the time as it was so hot. Very green campsites with lots of trees. Ablutions were very clean. Get up early to see the sun rises, quite a spectacular view.

We stayed here a year ago on our way to a 24 day Namibian trip. Aquacade was convenient to spend the night close to border as we drove that particular day from CT. The gravel road to the property was in very bad state though. Even with our 4motion vehicles is was not a pleasant drive. Luckily only a few...

If you want an affordable camp site with wonderful soft green grass Aquacade is the answer. It is a lovely laid back camp with lovely views of the Orange river and brilliant birding. Showers are hot, ablutions clean and the camp sites are well thought out with a braai area and an undercover eating area, with benches & table. Sites...

My name is Zandré, and I'm the new manager here at Aquacade. New mind, new beginning with a fresh outlook. Come enjoy the best the Orange River has to offer, private, practical campsites with all the basic necessities, lovely air conditioned chalets, a rocking Bush-pub that has Vioolsdrif's best parties, guided river rafting trips ranging from half day trips to...

I just want to be clear that i really enjoyed this camp but it needs some serious improvements in the premises and in management. I stayed at the campsite (number 3 to be more precise). Do not choose this one as it is one of the only without a sink to wash the dishes! Why is that i do not...

Competitive accommodation, friendly owner, nice views over the river. A brick wall between the last chalet and the campsite would have been nice, as you can literally hear what the campers say and do, through the reeds. (untill you tell them) Would visit again.

We booked 3 chalets for a one-night stop-over en-route to Namibia and it suited us just fine. IT WAS BY FAR THE BEST VALUE ON EITHER SIDE OF THE BORDER- we did our homework thoroughly. Grass and shade from nice trees for campers, comfortable ensuite chalets (bathroom attached - nice shower with lots of hot water)with microwaves, kettles and fridges...

My family was looking for an inexpensive sleepover on our way to Namibia; on enquiry found accommodation close to border extremely expensive. Then I found this place on internet and thought their price very reasonable, was a bit concern about some negative comments but it proofed not justified! We booked 2 chalets, real value for your money! Our host Herrick...

We stayed there for 8 days past easter, this is the only place with chalets with air-conditioning. The service was excellent, the accomodation is not 5 star but if you want that book into the Hilton hotel. This place you can unwind, de stress and just have a good time... I have been here 4 times already and will keep...
