We stayed over for a night at Sun River Kalahari Lodge between our visits from the National Parks. The green grass and air conditioned rooms was such a blessing to our soul. Enjoying a sundowner on the deck with the Orange River flowing beneath. Some Springbok gazed on the green grass. Unit was clean and equipped with all the necessary stuff. Had a lovely breakfast the following morning.

An absolutely lovely place. Beautiful and very well kept. Bathrooms newly renovated. Gorgeous landscape right on the Orange River. An absolute must to rest. Sraff incredibly helpful and friendly. Breakfast is included, a bit late for us traveling, but great nonetheless.

We had a one-night stay over and the lodge went the extra mile to accommodate us. Room was lovely and all ready when we checked in. They even went to some extra trouble to celebrate our son's 7th birthday.

As a foreign traveller on a difficult repatriation of a family member with disability, we were assisted at extremely short notice late on a winter's night. The manager was gracious and understanding especially given the trying times we all find ourselves in at present and restrictions placed on many businesses at present. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean, and breakfast on demand was great. It is a holiday destination, but was better than just that for us. I would recommend the lodge for many travellers or holiday makers with different needs. Great river views and a friendly gazelle in the garden!!
