About River Bank Lodge

In the warm and welcoming Kalahari town of Upington is the elegant guest house, the Riverbank Lodge. Offering luxurious accommodation in varying configurations, patrons are destined to find something to suit their needs. Warm hospitality, comfort and convenience await guests at the Riverbank Lodge.

The lodge is owner-run, with friendly, experienced staff on hand to assist you in planning your day. Riverbank Lodge makes for the ideal stopover on your way to Namibia or the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. What makes Riverbank Lodge so special is the fact that we are located on the banks of the mighty Orange River, yet still so close to town.

Riverbank Lodge is conveniently situated in town in a safe and quiet neighbourhood, just a five minute walk from the CBD. The lodge offers 12 en-suite rooms, each with a private entrance, DStv, fridge, microwave, tea and coffee-making facilities, and air-conditioning. Beautifully finished bathrooms complement the luxurious suites. With attention to detail throughout, every need is catered for. All rooms are also serviced daily and all amenities are supplied.

Breakfast is enjoyed in our lovely dining room and we cater for people with special dietary needs, when arranged beforehand. For those guests that do not wish to dine at the restaurants in town, Riverbank Lodge also offers barbecue facilities. It is truly an experience to enjoy a scrumptious braai in the charming garden while watching the sun set over the river.

The lodge offers ample safe parking for weary travellers, as well as a conference facility for up to 20 people. We provide the catering for such conferences. In summer, guests can laze around one of our two pools, and enjoy the feel of the hot African sun on their skin.

Conference Venues: Riverbank Lodge offers a conference facility for up to 20 people, with catering provided.

This is one of the best places we`ve ever been to. The scenery was spectacular. The staff is well trained and made everything comfortable. We enjoyed every moment and will recommend it to everybody.

What an absolutely amazing time I had, from the very minute I arrived. I was warmly welcomed from outside and helped with my bags and was then escorted up to my room, while being informed of all the happenings at the Lodge. The staff are really friendly and helpful, especially Brendan, he was wonderful. The Lodge itself is absolutely beautiful, situated on the banks of the Orange River. I would sit under the willow tree and just relax, and it is so very peaceful and calming. I had a very good stay and I would give the Riverbank Lodge ten stars if I could.

My husband and I recently spent a night at Riverbank Lodge, and it was nothing short of amazing! The setting is beautiful, with lush gardens fronting the Orange River, and its conveniently located minutes from the center of Upington. The staff were friendly, and very accommodating with any requests we had. Well definitely stay again!
