Outshoorn in the kline karoo is a great place to stay for visiting the area , just a small unpretentious town with a flavour of the real South Africa . Great scenic drives round about with the Swartberg pass being a particular favourite. The Staff at Riverside lodge were super , nothing was too much trouble.

Nice country lodge with lovely interior details and a very kind staff. The terrace is splendid to stay in nice days. The lodge houses were a special experience for our children wheras we liked very much the cosy rooms inside the main building. Lots of restaurant just a few meters around the lodge. Save car park. Good location of excursions...

We loved the Riverside. Comfortable, immaculate building, lovely people and brilliantly located near two very good local restaurants. The manager Carinne was most helpful and a beautiful friendly lady. Thouroughly recommend the Riverside to any visitors to Oudtshoorn. Neil and Julie (from Australia)!

Excellent location and professional service from Karien from arrival to departure. The lodge is charming and homely; the rooms beautifully and comfortably furnished. The restaurant recommended for dinner was brilliant and the reservation was made for us.
