About Oewerbos River Camp

Oewerbos River Camp is situated on the banks of the meandering Orange River en route to the Richtersveld Transfrontier Park. Ideally positioned halfway between Cape Town and Windhoek, you'll find this stunning camp to be the ideal stopover. Oewerbos River Camp offers meals, a self-catering option and has a full bar available to its guests.

At Oewerbos you can just relax, chill at the pool or enjoy the built in Jacuzzi, unwind on the deck directly overlooking the river while sipping on an ice cold beverage or read a book in your hammock. Don't leave before experiencing one of our famous pizzas from the wood-burning oven while you take in the Orange River at sunset. But that's not where the beauty ends - the Richtersveld night sky is ablaze with millions of stars. This is possibly one of the best places in the world for stargazing.

Oewerbos River Camp strives to offer our guests personalized service, offering a range of accommodation options and activities, including boat trips, fresh water angling and excellent birdwatching opportunities. Explore the large variety of plants, strange rock formations and other wildlife the Richtersveld has to offer.

The directions were a bit confusing resulting in our crossing the border before being told it was on the SA side. However, what a delight when we arrived. Lovely accommodation and the best pizza ever!Note: watering in front of the chalet is not a good idea as it creates a mud bath one has to wade through.

The rooms were neat and clean. We had a pleasant stay. The drain at the back of the cottage, caused a nasty smell. Establishments response:Hi Karolien. Thank you for your rating. Due to Eskom load-shedding pumps are not always automatically switched on once the power comes back. The odour from the back of the chalet was kitchen water which normally gets pumped automatically. I'm sorry for this inconvenience.Kind regards,

Please make sure that the fridge is working, as the food went off.

We had a very lovely stay in a family challet. Extremely neat challets. Excellent pizzas and swimmingpool to cool off.Only the gravel road is terrible and the directions from the main road is not very good.

The overnight chalets are perfect for a short stay. Very clean, and with all the basics of comfort and amenities one needs. Spacious private bathrooms. The bar-restaurant-lounge is wonderful. Relaxed, casual and welcoming, and with beautiful river views across to Namibia. There was a burst water main the next morning, affecting everything, which is the only reason we are rating our overall stay as "3".
