The staff were very efficient & most obliging and went out of their way to look after my husband and I. We saw lots of bird life & especially swallow tailed bee eaters. Lovely setting right on the Orange River. We will not forget our stay at Orange River Rafting Lodge.

We went camping as a family with our married children and a two year old. Nice camping sites with beautiful view of the river and sunset. Kiddies playarea and sunloungers next to the pool and at the little beach down by the river. A restaurant where you can eat something if you don’t want to braai. They cleaned the campsite bathrooms everyday. It could be updated a bit. Nice hot water. We had a lovely time as a family and I’ll go there again.

We stayed with our 2 young daughters in one of the waterfront cabins with the hot tub. The kids loved the hot tub! It is right on the edge of the water with a nice view. I was initially worried that the two adjacent cabins were too close, but that proved unfounded, we had plenty of quiet and privacy. Staff was all lovely and super helpful.

What was booked as a 2 night stopover turned into 5 nights. We loved The Orange river Rafting Lodge. The site is beautifully maintained and an oasis after a long drive. Shaun and Elena are extremely friendly, welcoming and accommodating on every level. The units are very clean and comfortable with top quality mattresses and linen. We visited in July when the nights were cold and we were so comfortable. I can imagine in the heat of summer that the Aircon in the units are a godsend. The river is right there in front of the restaurant and all the equipment is available for an organized half or full day raft or a self led trip out on the water. everything you need for a self catering stop over is available and if you need a break from the braai the restaurant food is great, fresh food and excellent meals.
