About Van Zylsrus Hotel

Situated on the banks of the dry Kuruman River, Van Zylsrus Hotel was previously known as the Gemsbok Hotel but has been fully restored and offers guests a comfortable stay in this boutique hotel.

Guests have a choice of staying in one of six en-suite rooms, a Family Room or the lovely Honeymoon Suite. Three of the en-suite rooms are furnished with double beds and have full bathrooms; and the other three have single beds and bathrooms with showers only. The Family Room is furnished with a double and two single beds, and also has an en-suite bathroom with a shower only. The Honeymoon Suite has a private garden with an outdoor heated shower and is furnished with a double bed. All the rooms are equipped with air-conditioners, TVs, hairdryers and tea and coffee facilities.

Guests can enjoy their meals in the beautiful dining room or on the spacious patio where the arid Kalahari heat is tamed by several outdoor mist coolers. On those hot days, guests can also cool down around the swimming pool or sip a cocktail in the shallow water or at the bar. At night guests can enjoy good wine and a tasty braai around a crackling fire in the private boma under the stars. Weary travellers can also go for a massage from a qualified therapist to add to the relaxation.

The hotel has a conference facility that caters for a minimum of 10 delegates and can double as a rendezvous for a team building weekend. The curio shop will also tempt guests to buy a reminder of their stay, which has been created by local Kalahari inhabitants.

Spa: Weary travellers can have a relaxing massage after a long day of driving.

Conference Venues: There are conference facilities for a minimum of 10 delegates.

Romantic: The lovely Honeymoon Suite has a private garden and a heated outdoor shower.

                  We actually booked this place online because it was Easter and the choice was not big. When we arrived, we found a unique stylish and welcoming place and we felt wel from the first to the last minute.So the place is for sure worth a deviation and we will include it in our travel plans for this region in the future.Thanks to everyone there for making us feel well.

                  An oasis after a gruelling drive en route to/from Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Clean, comfy rooms, friendly service, farm cooking
