About Frontier River Resort

Frontier River Resort is a luxury tented resort situated on the South African bank of the Orange River, just 6 km from the border on the N7.

Built on a hill, the resort has spectacular views of the river and Namibia and is the ideal stop-over location between South Africa and Namibia. The resort is also ideally situated for any 4x4 enthusiasts looking for a luxurious and comfortable alternative to camping.

We offer accommodation in six luxury free-standing permanent safari-style tents. Each tent contains an en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning, with a bar fridge & tea/coffee facilities. The bathrooms were built using stones collected from the surrounding area. There are 2 Boma kitchens fully equipped for braaing & cooking for the guests. We sell wood, ice, water & braaipacks. The swimming pool has beautiful views overlooking the Orange River & Namibia and there is a small play area for children as well.

Our full English breakfast is R120p/p and our standard breakfast is R85p/p.

The Orange River, one of South Africa's major rivers, is truly one of the purest adventure trails in Southern Africa. The Gariep River, or Great River as it is called by the local Nama people, offers a unique outdoor experience to those who seek tranquility and adventure. The Orange River cuts through the Richtersveldt Desert Reserve and is now part of the Transfrontier transformation parks. Days are spent with early morning paddling, swimming, floating, bird watching and negotiating some rapids and fast-flowing water. Guides will take you through the steps of paddling through rapids, hiking and in general discover the ecosystem of the desert.

          The place is beautiful and quiet. The people are very friendly and helpful. The tents are very comfortable. The breakfast is very good.

          Very practical, well equipped and decorated luxury tents. Just pack lightly as you have to take a short walkway to your tent. Two very nice braai/kitchen areas with everything you need. Extra attention to detail made our stay very comfortable.

          With a name like " Frontier RIVER Lodge" one would expect atleast a river view, not a view onto a lifeless gravel road. The facilities are neat and tidy but the canvas tent structure is unbearable hot and the aircon is not big enough to make it comfortable during the afternoon. The advert is abit misleading, very pricey for what you get.

          The tents are nicely furnished. Pool and entertainment wares nice with good views. Just beware of the heat, aircons do not help.
