About River Bank Lapa

On the banks of the mighty Orange River we combine nature and luxury. After a tiring journey, relax at the waterfront in our luscious garden or laze in our pool. Allow the sunrise over the river and early morning birdsong to revive your energy. We are within walking distance of the business centre and restaurants.

We offer six en-suite units that all have their own separate private entrances,. The units are air-conditioned, have a TV with DStv, secure parking, barbecue facilities and use of our swimming pool. We are in a safe and upmarket area where you can enjoy birdwatching , fishing and much more. We are a new dimension in guesthousing.

          The host was so helpful and welcoming. We were offered both rooms for our self to use. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the deck overlooking the river. We will be back. One night was not enough.

          The Lapa is a wonderful place to stay if you love rivers, especially the Orange, as we do. There is nothing more that we could ask for. The Lapa itself is wonderfully equipped and very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool to cool down in.

          Highly recommended. It was quite hard to find a place with a natural feel on the river. This is the best around. (Easy to get it wrong In upington :) Will miss the bird calls and sun coming up over Orange.
