Norotshama River Resort

Norotshama River Resort is an undiscovered gem, just 50km North-west of the village in Noordoewer on the farm Aussenkehr. It lies on the banks of the Orange River, and is a malaria-free resort. You should bring your camera when going on this journey, you will see stark contrasts of the sky, water and sand unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. The landscapes and indigenous wild Namib horses will leave you breathless, as they roam in this untamed wilderness. Our resort offers free Wi-Fi, laundry and comfortable accommodation. It features a swimming pool, restaurant, bar, with indoor and outdoor dining areas overlooking the river and mountains. Our restaurant offers a la carte menu, except for groups of 15 or more, then we have a buffet or a braai.


Norotshama has 30 stylishly decorated, luxury air-conditioned suites on offer and 15 campsites. We have 4 luxury tented thatched chalets, 4 thatched family chalets, 10 river edge chalets and 2 stone constructed units. We also have well-equipped campsites with a great setting for sleeping under the stars. Our rooms feature en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, mosquito nets, safe and minibar. Some of the units are self-catering. The campsites have braai facilities, ablution blocks and electricity.


Norotshama River Resort offers various activities. River Rafting is the highlight of all the activities, on the great Orange River. We have sport rock climbing, which has become increasingly popular with 12 different rock climbing routes ranging from grade 15-24 and has been set out by professional rock climbing experts. In the Aussenkehr Nature Park, we offer hiking, mountain biking and 4×4 routes. We have spectacular sunset trips in a floating bar on the Orange River, self-drive excursions to local sand dunes and canyons, and visit an old German building which is older than 100 years. We have the wild Namib horses residing on the farm, or visit a cultural village near-by and learn more about the grape production project.
