Best in North Cape

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Jan 2021
It is only a pleasure for me to rate our stay at Red Sands Country Lodge. From the very start the interaction was pleasant and we were not even forced to stay a minimum of two nights. Fortunately we did! The Lodge is well looked after and is being maintained constantly. Our chalet was evidently recently revamped with new flooring etc. It was not extravagant but fine. One negative point may be the fact that the single toilet is situated in the single bathroom.

The views are breathtaking and free game drives with your own vehicle are allowed. The camping site looks fine also.

On the second evening we tried out the well established, beautiful, fine restaurant. Ladies and Gentlemen this has to be the best restaurant in the North Cape, if not South Africa. Once again the personnel were friendly, well trained and experienced. Without a fuss, the service was excellent - perfect timing right through and we had the best ever meal all in a relaxed 90 minutes. The prices on the menu were competitive, the variety was great and the 5 of us each ordered something different. All meals were served together, all meals were hot and we still argue who's was the best. The chef most definitely deserves a medal! We shall visit again!

      Great place to stay between Johannesburg and kgalagadi. Rooms are nice, beds cozy and the management is fantastic. Loved our time by the pool. My daughter especially loved the animals, the baby Springbok was a delight to watch play

      Amazing resort for both families or couples alike. Very chilled atmosphere by the pool or garden area where refreshments can be served as required. Owners went out of their way to bring us chairs and had a friendly chat with their daughter taking our daughter down to spend time with the animals. Restaurant was great for both breakfast and dinner, highly recommend this place and will be back.

      If you love the bush and singing birds this is the place to be. Very friendly staff. We stayed in a lovely unit at the foot of the hill. Lots of windows to bring the bush inside. Very private and peaceful. We enjoyed watching the birds and even spotted some buck going past. We didn't see much on the self game drive, but I think it was too hot. The food was great and the service was fast and welcoming. Thank you Red sands team we had a wonderful stay.

      Excellent accommodation for tourists, vacationers and business travellers visiting Northern Cape. The rooms are spacious and clean. The resort is situated in the natural habitat that is relaxing and complimented by some free wandering species of game.
