Beautiful setting on the Vaal river with lush green grass and lots of trees. Nice aircon in the bedroom.We stayed here for 3 days with family. Bedding is very nice. Not really geared for self catering. On their website they say guests can order rooster koeke from the restaurant. We did. And was shocked to be charged R160 for 8....

We stayed at Broadwater River Estate in September 2015. The accommodation was not to bad, but the food terrible. My 6 year old son ordered fish fingers for dinner. The fish fingers were off. Terrible taste and smell. My husband ordered a salad with his meal, but he never received it. The breakfast was shocking. Two eggs, ONE small piece...

A great, quiet place close to Dougles, nested in fabulous nature. Situated over the river Vaal, close to its confluence with Orange river.

The only point we really didn't like was the toilet right behind the...

If you are in the Kimberley, or Douglas areas - in South Africa's Northern Cape province - remember to stop off at Broadwater - on the banks of the Vaal River. It is a photographers paradise! With tons of beautiful birdlife, African sunsets and varied vegetation. Remember to get a fishing licence and some freshwater fishing equipment! Apparently there are...

Hi I would like to record our stay on Christmas Eve at Broadwater Lodge in Douglas near Kimberely. We booked for the Christmas lunch but told them we were arriving from Cape Town and would only be there about 15h00. They said no problem they would keep our lunch for us. Well they did keep our lunch for us, open...

Dear Shirley P We sincerely apologise for your bad experience at Broadwater. After our restaurant burnt down, we have a temporary restaurant setup which is not ideal. Yet that is no excuse for bad service etc. The opening of our new restaurant will be during the winter of 2013, and we would love to have you back at Broadwater River...
