A beautiful lodge on the banks of the Sun River.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Jan 2024
As part of a birding tour - this resort was beautiful and well treed with a large lawn - on the banks of the Sun river with Springbok on the grounds. Rooms were very nice with amenities. Very good meals were provided in the restaurant on site. Staff was very friendly and service oriented.

Situated fairly close to the centre of town but away from any car noise. Very peaceful on the bank of the Orange River and the garden & lawns were green & very well maintained.

We stayed in a Cottage with river & garden views . There were 2 bedrooms & a small kitchen area with a fridge/kettle as well as a lounge with a tv & a large bathroom. The rooms were spacious enough for a short stay on our way to Kgalagadi.

There is off road parking behind remote gates , so it quite secure. They also have back up power should it be needed.

The property also has a big viewing deck overlooking the river with tables & chairs to enjoy a sundowner or some food . We did not eat at the Lodge. It would have been nice if there were some snacks to buy at the bar especially when we watched the FA Cup football final.

As it is winter the Lodge was very quiet which was wonderful for us , just the sounds of the river. And we did manage to see the 4 resident springboks & even touch Frikkie although the other 3 kept chasing him away

Lovely experience with the Orange river flowing past our chalet. There were 4 resident springbok or springbuck antelope walking around. Our room was comfortable and clean with a small fridge, kettle, cups & cutlery. The breakfast included in the price was more than sufficient and tasty. Staff were friendly and helpful, even helped us keep our groceries cold in their fridges. Lorinda was a perfect host.

Room tip: Great overnight stay for travellers.

We enjoyed every moment of our stay. The view and greenery is a must see. The rooms were pretty nice and clean. Staff was great as well as the breakfast. I’ll definitely return with my family next time.

Rooms beautifully situated on the banks of the Gariep River. lush green lawns to the rivers edge with tame springbok grazing. Nothing lacking. Great recommendation for supper in town by the manager. Only negative and personal gripe is the OPEN shower - might be fashionable and withit but the water goes everywhere and especially in Winter it feels as if a Arctic gale is blowing in the bathroom.

Our stay there was great. Rooms are clean and well decorated. Very good beds.
The landscape is amazing. Sunrise is wonderful on the river with the shape of the Springboks in the garden.
Welcome is warm and friendly.
