Reviews for The Growcery
As the Orange river winds it's way through the arid Richtersveld,find yourself unwinding.Good camping.Pick fresh salads/veg and herbs from the gardens.Have a hot shower under the stars.Lots of paddling of course or hiking in the mountains.Great staff!
Super spot. Friendly environment and just loved the fresh produce in their gardens.
Had a wonderfull time. Staff is amazing!!
Fantastic, rustic, friendly, clean. A great experience. We will be back .
This was our base for our amazing 4-day trip trip down the river. They have plenty of ice - ;) which is very much needed in the heat - , the most amazing rafting guides, super friendly staff at the camp and very good facilities (spacious camping spots with grass and clean ablutions). I've been there twice in three years and I'll definitely go back!There is a long gravel road to get there so take a car with good clearance. I'd recommend the camping over the chic shake cause the shacks can get a bit hot and they're not sealed so you'll need to be careful with the mosquito nets (and hope they don't have any holes) and come prepared with lots of insect repellent.
What an amazing place - the staff is awesome and friendly. They make you feel at home immediately. The camps have beautiful green grass and spacious. Ablutions are made from local materials and clean. Hot water. You can book dinner in advance - delicious. Not expensive. They grow their own veggies on site. Chill in the river with your lilo.
Excellent glampling spot. Great friendly helpful service. Loved our breakfast. Great concept. Worth staying.
The Growcery and all its wonderful staff have a special place in my heart. Their service is fantastic, their products are of the highest quality and you could not get a better shower, with its unique outdoor facility. The 6 day river trip is a magical experience and the hospitality is the best in the country. Please come here. You will not be disappointed.
Perfect stopover on our trip to southern Namibia. Ruan was a wonderful host and the whole team were fantastic. Great restroom and wonderful outdoor showers. Highly Recommended.
Great place to stop if you travelling to or from Namibia. Also great people to book for Orange River Rafting tour.
"A must stop over campsite"
Very neat campsite on the banks of the Orange River. Friendly staff. Great stay, you will see us in 2015.
Great campsite, extremely helpful staff, very well maintained grounds and facilities. We spent 2 great nights at the Growcery. The setting is magical, the Orange River a welcome refreshment after hot hot days. A bunch of super friendly dogs that keep you company is an added bonus. We can recommend the Growcery to the absolute fullest!
