Verified reviewexcellent

We stayed for two nights at the Orange River Rafting Lodge on our way to Namibia. The amenities were excellent. Lovely pool. Swim in the orange rIver. Experience kayaking - Pieter dropped us of about 8km away and we kayaked back to the lodge. - lovely taste to the experience if you haven’t done it before. Sit and have a beer overlooking the Orange river at sunset after spending the day relaxing next to the pool. The accommodation is clean, very tasteful and everything is close by. We bought Rump steak from the kitchen to braai and they supplied us with a lovely coleslaw salad as well. Everyone was very helpful and super friendly. We will definitely stay at the Orange River Rafting lodge again and currently contemplating sleeping there overnight on our way back to Cape Town from Namibia as it was so worth the money. Thanks!
