About Springbok Lodge & Restaurant
Springbok is the ideal stop-over as it offers easy driving to Upington, Cape Town, the West coast, the Richtersveld and Namibia. Get to know Namaqualand with a visit to the Springbok Lodge & Restaurant - the only one stop accommodation service in Namaqualand.
The Springbok Lodge is a family business, operated since 1947 when it was known as the Springbok Café and Private Hotel. Today the main building houses the reception of the Lodge, the restaurant, a café and curio shop.
The main building also houses interesting displays of mineral specimens (collected from all over the world), a photographic exhibition of the Richtersveld and historic Namaqualand as well as paintings of South African artists such as Sima Eliovson and Barbara Jeppe.
Various houses and buildings in the vicinity of the main building were bought and renovated through the years. The names of the houses reflect their interesting histories, e.g. Hörnemanns Haus, Die Stoor (The Store) and Die Ankerhuis (The Anchor House). Small pets allowed (please mention when booking).
