The place is beautiful and tranquil. The staff is friendly and helpful, from the security guard to the reception desk. The most important thing is that they are prepared to listen and do whatever it takes to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The food is great.

Good quality food for dinner. Can choose between dining room or room service, which meant to me, sitting outside my room drinking in the beauty and peace around me...

This is in a beautiful setting, set off from a main road. It's very quiet and peaceful. We stayed in one of the apartments which had a built in BBQ on the balcony. Couldn't fault the accommodation at all and breakfast was excellent too.

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.

Reviewed 14 February 2017

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.
