What a stunning lodge with a fantastic scene over the Orange river. This lodge is one, if not the, favourite lodge of the lodges I has stayed in. The rooms are very spacious and very tastly furnished. Both dinner and breakfast was excellently prepared and presented. The staff was hyper friendly and very efficient.

We loved the location, our room and the breakfast. The staff were friendly and very helpful. A group of Swedish guests who are apparently staying for quite a while due to business, sat outside and laughed and spoke loudly until past midnight. We asked them to go inside or tone down the noise but after five minutes, the volume had...

We booked the larger suite, with a lovely balcony overlooking the river. The room is beautifully appointed, with a tiny kitchenette, and a fridge. The Lodge is also very accommodating about keeping your frozen goods frozen in their facilities. The breakfast was good, and the Kalahari Mall with its Checkers, Spar and Woolworths food, is just up the road.

Lovely stay. Beautiful rooms on the river bank. Hostess was very friendly and accommodating. Airconditioning was working. Breakfast was done very nice. We were trevelling with a boat. A bit of a challenge to get through the narrow gates. Bigger challenge was to find the place as all the roadmarkings dated from before Van Riebeek landed.

What a fantastic over night stop over. Such a beautiful gem - over looking the river, lovely accommodation and superb food! Professional friendly staff. All the small gestures for our baby boy made such an impression! We will definitely consider your property the next time we are looking for accommodation in Upington.

What a great last minute decision to stay here. Room was great. Food was excellent but the view from your room or the pool is what makes this a 5. To stay anywhere else would be a great mistake. You must try the pork chops. Best we have ever had.

Beautifully appointed rooms with a stunning view of the Orange River. The food was amazing and the staff very friendly and helpful. We were sad that we could only stay one night. We will definitely be back some day soon. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
