If you want to stay in a cottage with one of the best views in South Africa, head for Oranjekom viewpoint in the Augrabies Falls National Park in the Northern Cape. This is where you’ll find Gorge Cottage where the view will get your pulse thumping.
Well, it seems someone at SANParks had the same idea because Gorge Cottage was built under the viewing platform and opened to the public in April 2016.
The other niggle for those who need to pee in the middle of the night is that the toilet is a short walk away from the cottage. Luckily, management has listened to feedback from visitors and is planning to install an eco-loo in the main unit to solve this concern too.
[Update: The eco-loo was installed by the end of April 2017 and the cooling system at the end of June 2017.]
