Brilliant! What a place. Built among the rocks of the canyon its hard to tell there is anything there. The staff were excellent, food great and the accommodation was superb. Highly recommended! Its a long way to the lodge but well worth the trip.

... River is the longest river in South Africa, some 2500 kilometers long running from the mountains of Lesotho west and north through South Africa and Namibia to the Atlantic Ocean. It is the Orange River that provides sustenance to the vineyards in northern South Africa and the immense section of vineyard we passed through as we headed north. It was like a vast oasis of grape vines rising out of the desert. Accompanying the vineyards was a settlement of ...
