Zebra River Lodge

Activities at Zebra River Lodge

Zebra River Lodge sits in the valley alongside the Zebra River which, although it is dry most of the year, is home to kudu, warthog, zebra, jackals and many more, all of which can be seen from the lodge veranda when they visit the water hole. There are several natural springs within easy reach of the lodge, ideal for a days walking and bird watching.

For your information:

Zebra River Lodge is suffering from a drought for the last 4 years. We had to save water, therefore we weren't able to keep our wonderful lawn and all the greenery. Instead we developed some nice desert gardens.


Zebra River Lodge has been named a Best Value Sossusvlei Establishment on AccommoDirect.com
