Fodor's Expert Review Dundi Lodge

4 Airport Blvd., Augrabies, Northern Cape, 8870, South Africa

This small guesthouse offers big hospitality and the closest thing to cosseting luxury that you'll find in the immediate vicinity of Augrabies Falls. Situated 3 km (2 miles) from the national park, it's on a large property with its own airstrip and, consequently, has a bit of a small desert-oasis resort atmosphere, with an unusual avenue of very tall palm trees out front. The food and service are good, and the rooms are cushy rooms with dressing gowns and walk-in wardrobes. A lovely wooden deck equipped with sun beds and tables and centered on an enticing swimming pool (really needed in summer) is a gorgeous sanctuary after a day exploring this lesser-known corner of South Africa. A three-bedroom villa offers greater privacy.


  • excellent dinner menu
  • best-looking rooms for miles
  • immense upstairs "executive" suite with a huge balcony and lovely view


  • bathrooms are on the small side
  • after the adventure of getting here, room interiors (including laminated floors) may seem conventional
  • downstairs rooms aren't quite as lavish or large as the one suite upstairs
