Orange River Lodge - General

 

The Orange River Lodge borders the Ai-Ais-Richtersveld Transfrontier Conservation Park. The Park is 6 045 km2 in extent and straddles the Namibian and South African border, offering breathtakingly vistas of the desert and arid plains, as well as a huge variety of unique plant species.

Budding historians can visit the sites of battles that were fought during the Nama Rebellion of 1904 to 1908, or the graves of German soldiers who were stationed in Namibia in colonial times.

 

The Location

The Orange River Lodge is situated in Noordoewer (“Northern Bank”). This town, as its name suggests, is on the Namibian bank of the Orange River – the natural border between Namibia and South Africa.

 

Accommodation

The Orange River Lodge offers a variety of accommodation to suit weary travellers. For those who prefer self-catering (self-contained) accommodation, the Lodge offers 4 double rooms. An additional 3 family rooms can each accommodate 4 persons. Both room options are en suite and offer air-conditioning, TV and tea/coffee-making facilities.

Experience true Namibian hospitality in the thatched Lapa where delectable meals (a la carte) are served, or get to know fellow travellers in the convivial bar.

 

 

Activities

Although the Orange River Lodge is the ideal stop-over between Cape Town and Windhoek, they also offer a range of activities for guests wanting to extend their stay.

The Orange River is home to a large number of fish species (especially carp, sharp tooth catfish and yellow fish), so why not try your hand at angling? You can rent the necessary fishing tackle from the Orange River Lodge.

Canoes can also be rented for day trips down the river – the return trip to the Orange River Lodge is included in the fee.
