A convenient if a little impersonal lodge with comfortable accommodation
Vergelegen is a lodge on the outskirts of the riverside town of Kakamas set in surprisingly verdant grounds in this rather arid area. The 14 rooms are set around a courtyard with a small fountain and are comfortably appointed with reasonably sized rooms and good bathrooms. There is a restaurant and a pleasant outer courtyard around the small pool. The lake fed by irrigation water from the Orange River is beautiful and a haven for water birds including Black Swans.
