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, with a full breakfast. 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.

          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.

          Clean and comfortable rooms. We were in the lapa with great river view. Friendly and helpful staff. Quiet and relaxing environment - perfect for a stop-over after a long day on the road. Loved the breakfast!

          We enjoyed our stay. Its a pity we didnt stay long in Upington as we were passing through to Namibia. Never thought Id be that much close to the Orange River in my life. The view is amazing and the host was so welcoming as well.
