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.

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 very much enjoyed our stay at River Bank Lapa. The beatiful panaramic view from the Lapa on the banks of the Orange river was breathtaking and the accommodation was outstanding, the breakfast was out of this world. A really fantastic experience.

It has a great setting on the river with very nicely decorated rooms within a brilliant garden setting. It has secure parking and easy access to town. The personnel were very friendly.
