Great hospitality

We were in the room which was well above the Lodge - a wonderful spot with fantastic views and total privacy. Definately worth the walk up to it.

Rob and Marianne were tremendous hosts, making the guests feel as if they were part of the family without invading our "space". The meals were excellant.

The trip up to the spring was very well worth doing, in spite of the heat!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Zebra River Lodge review

A great place to stay, homley staff wanting to do anything to make your stay comfortable.

Great place to begin or finish your trip but you need more than 1 night

Zebra River Lodge review

We were warmly welcomed by Marianne and imediately made to feel at home. We were extremely lucky to be given guest room number 9, built into the side of the hill - you needed to be quite fit to reach it! but once there the view and the room make it well worth the effort.

It was a very relaxing time and we were well looked after for part of the time by Neil (a friend of the family) and Jana as Marianne and Rob were away. We also enjoyed the food and the company.

We were glad that we had a high clearance vehicle to make the journey from Soussus Dune Lodge to Zebra River - Not too far in distance but hard driving.

Zebra River Lodge review

This is a charming relaxing place at which we have stayed twice before, but it's Marianne's personality that dominates it.

If she and Rob move on it will be interesting to see what happens there.

Zebra River Lodge review

Very attractive setting, lodge delightful with good views and good walks, well documented by Robert and Marianne and cairned by Neil.

Robert and Marianne very enthusiastic and helpful, food very adequate and good quality. Pool tiny and uninviting, unfortunately no fridge.

Set in wonderful surroundings

Unforgettable walking in this area. We enjoyed the challenging 5 hour canyon trail spotting mountain zebra and enjoying the views of the canyon which is only 70 metres short of the depth of Fish River Canyon so very spectacular. Convivial arrangements for eating together in the evening with excellent food, especially the home-made bread. Personal. attention from the owners and friendly, helpful staff.

We think we were especially lucky to have the room right at the top of the camp with wonderful views over the area which were especially good in the evening and at dawn.

Lovely Zebra River Lodge

Owners and staff were all very friendly and helpful, delightful atmosphere. Location ideal for hiking and relaxing. Roads to lodge are somewhat unsuitable for anything other than a good sized 4x4.

A very relaxing place

Very good welcome. Friendliness easily spread to guests. Very good food.

The guide for the morning walk could have been more informative.

Zebra River Lodge review

Friendly staff obviously treated well. Owners not there but stand in staff good.

Dogs a bit out of control and one in particular was defineatly not safe for small children but they were very up front about this issue.

Zebra River Lodge review

Of all the lodges we stayed at, this was a particular favourite. Stunning landscapes with more than enough walking opportunities.

We did the Canyon walk which afforded fantastic views of the area, and can be completed by any moderately fit person in around 5 hours. Great home cooked food shared with the other guests in the lodge. Staff knowledgeable and friendly.
