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.

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 enjoyed our stay. Its a pity we didnt stay long in Upington as we were passing through to Namibia. Never thought Id be that much close to the Orange River in my life. The view is amazing and the host was so welcoming as well.

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.
