Delightful and so peaceful situated in beautiful settings! The Orange River in front and beyond the mountains of the Richtersveld in the distance, beautiful sunset and sunrise - what more can you ask for!!! A place to unwind for an overnight stay after a fair days drive. Delicious supper - kudos to the chef! But breakfast left much to be...

I thought this was really rather poor. The pool looked dirty. The sunbeds were uncomfortable. There was no seating area. The river looked stagnant. Service was slow. The rooms were passable. The bathroom, complete with open-air shower, was uncomfortable. Not for me.

Booked a campsite for one night. The grass on the site was rather sparse, but there was some shade from trees. Only 4 of the campsites were occupied and we therefore had exclusive use of one of the shared ablution facilities, which were clean, well maintained and included wash-up facilities.Campsites had braai areas and electricity points conveniently located. Our campsite...

Enjoyed our stay at Norotshama. Cool, lovely bungalow on the bank of the river. Bird song waking you up every morning. Friendly staff and nice breakfast and lunch on the terrace while the river flows gently by.

We booked two nights of camping at Norotshama after it came highly recommend by friends and the Go magazine. I'm not sure what went wrong and when but I'm so disappointed. This place is ideally situated on the bank of the river and someone clearly spent a lot of money to put infrastructure in place and then it was left...

Saw the sign to the resort and decided to stop in for lunch which turned out to be very enjoyable. We sat in the bar overlooking the orange river, the service was good and the lunch tastey with a nice atmosphere in the bar. The resort setting is very nice on the river.

We stayed here as part of a tour and enjoyed the lodge. The rooms were beautiful, the staff very friendly and helpful. We arrived at sunset and realised the next morning how beautiful the location was. In the vineyards, on the river surrounded by mountains! How perfect. The restaurant served an amazing meal, my lamb chops were some of the...
