A very nice stop halfway from West Coast to Pretoria. The rooms adequate but the food served at restaurant is to die for! The setting and sunset is a definite highlight. Will definitely recommend for the weary traveler...

Red sands has the potential to be so much more ... This is an overnight stop for many people moving up north , the staff are mechanically pleasant , passion is missing . The buffet is good but comes at an outlandish price , the sites are designed to be an in out experience bottom line , the attitude is... More

Chalets clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly. Great over night stay with a beautiful view. Breakfast was fantastic I would highly recommend this lodge for an overnight stay when heading to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier park.

We arrived at 9pm on the 11th March 16 and were welcomed by friendly faces and wonderful staff. The food and service is highly recommended. We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful time. I would recommend a stay at this beautiful country lodge it is a must when travelling through the northern Cape.

I stayed over here in my way home from Cape to Pretoria. Very nice rooms in the Chalet with exactly what I needed a place that offers all the things one needs for a good night's sleep so that you can be rested for your drive. Aircon, good shower, spacious room with kitchen, fridge and basic food making ability. Restaurant... More

We spent a single night at Red Sands on the way home from the Kgalagadi. We were allocated one of the rondawels - actually a large one that had been split into two. It was very neat and clean and had a bar fridge with complimentary water. The furniture was made from solid wood and was very nice. The beds... More

The mtb route on red sand is a blast. I freaking love it. Speak to Richard regarding routes and different tracks available. Once you finished do make a stop at the restaurant and enjoy some of the best food to eat in the Kuruman Kathu area. Thanks for awesome mtb trails.

Perfect getaway from the city life, located between kathu and kuruman. Rooms are clean, airconditioned and beds comfortable. On site restaurant offers good food at a reasonable price, when staying here take the time for a hike or drive through the park.
