About Libby's Lodge

Libby's Lodge is situated in the Green Kalahari Desert – the land of contrasts where the life giving forces of the earth’s elements combine to create a unique landscape of unsurpassed beauty. Allow the mighty Orange River and the great Kalahari Desert to enter your existence and create lingering memories.

Liesel and Hannes invite you to discover luxurious comfort in an atmosphere of peace and serenity, while you unlock the mysteries and secrets entrusted to this beautiful semi-arid African landscape – sacred home of the ancient San people.

Libby’s Lodge is centrally situated in a safe neighbourhood and is easily located. Experience warm hospitality and professional service at an affordable rate. Wander along our tranquil garden paths while observing the wide variety of visiting wild birds. Give in to the allure of cool, crystal clear water and enjoy relaxing moments in the pool and under the bush-styled gazebo. Allow us to revive your senses and rejuvenate your soul.

Libby’s Lodge offers seven spacious double rooms with en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning. Rooms are private and uniquely decorated. Enjoy a refreshing drink from the complimentary tea tray in each room whilst indulging in something sweet – a small welcoming surprise from our friendly staff. All rooms open onto private verandas with a view to the garden and pool area. Rooms are fully-equipped and serviced daily.

We also offer three spacious self-catering family units. These units are private and well-equipped. We offer special family packages at discount rates. Take full advantage of our near to perfect weather conditions by having a braai under the stars, as each unit has a private barbecue area.

A full sumptuous English breakfast is served to order. Breakfast or lunch packs can be arranged on request, but please be sure to arrange this prior to your arrival (we regret no breakfast or lunch packs on Sundays).

              Had a stunning stay. The rooms are comfortable. The pool area is excellent for getting together with friends we are traveling with. Breakfast was delicious. Staff are helpful, accommodating and friendly. An excellent start to our trip.

              Stayed at Libby's in transit from Kgalagadi. Friendly welcome, nice gardens, clean and well equipped room for the family. Plenty of space and off the street parking. Well worth the stay.

              Set in a quiet residential area near the Oranje river, Libbys Lodge offers a nice recluse for a weary traveller. Despite being near a main road, it is quiet enough and has the expected pool to allow one to cool down in the Northern Cape heat. The rooms were well kept and one walks out into a lovely patio that overlooks the pool. A braai area is available for those willing to engage in the art of fire making and grilling some meat. A pleasant stay for day or two.
