About Plato Lodge

Plato Lodge is a lovely thatched lodge located in the Northern Cape of South Africa, approximately 50 km from the Augrabies Falls. The nearby Augrabies Falls National Park is a national park located around the Augrabies Falls, about 120 km west of Upington. The Augrabies Falls National Park is an arid area that stretches along the Orange River and the waterfall is about 60 m high, and is awe-inspiring when the river is in flood. The original Khoikhoi people named the waterfall Ankoerebis, meaning the place of big noises. The Trekboers who later settled in the area derived the name Augrabies. The name is sometimes spelt Aughrabies. Great place for photography. Especially quiver trees.Accommodation is offered in twin or double rooms, each containing either a king-size bed or a twin single beds, a shower en-suite, mini-bar, tea and coffee-making facilities, and a balcony.The lodge offers braai and bar facilities. On-site parking is available.
