About Broadwater

Endless water views, the call of the fish eagle, breathtaking sunsets and champagne under a starry sky. Broadwater is a private river escape that nestles on the banks of the Vaal River near Kimberley and Douglas. In this pristine aquatic environment you find space for the solitary and activity for the energetic.

Enjoy the river and relax in style amongst a pristine aquatic environment. Listen in awe to the magical call of the fish eagle or watch just metres away from you, the kingfisher swoop down to the river to catch its meal. Experience the healing peacefulness that fills all creatures as nightfall descends on the glassy waters of the Vaal River.


We offer stylish and comfortable 4-star accommodation for up to 50 guests. Ten luxurious air-conditioned units with a river view are furnished with a TV, fridge and coffee/tea facilities. All rooms are en-suite.

The apartments and chalets are equipped with kitchenettes and braai-facilities on the patio for self-catering. Bedding and towels are supplied in all units.


Each camping site has its private bathroom (bath and shower). There is a scullery and a power point. Most sites have a river view and are shaded.


Broadwater also harbours the DaRiva Houseboat - the idyllic place to relax with comfortable accommodation and a fully equipped kitchen (fridge, freezer, stove, hot water). The spacious top deck has barbeque facilities and a skipper at your service.

Breakfast and Dining

Breakfast and meals are served in Die Pont Restaurant - experience more than delicious food; experience nature at it’s best.
