River Lodge

This luxury lodge is located in the Riverine Forest, which boasts the magnificent Olifants River–largest in all of the lowveld.  It also features two of the largest trees in South Africa, a sycamore fig (with a diameter in excess of five metres), and a leadwood (with a diameter exceeding two metres). This region is home to hippos, crocodiles, elephants and other massive Riverine trees. River Lodge is the venue for any avid bird watcher.

River Lodge has an entertainment area including a lounge, bar, and gorgeous swimming pool, all housed under a traditional thatched roof. Our elegant dining deck is set in riverine vegetation, four standard chalets, four luxury suites and a new river deck, overlooking the Olifants River, and our elevated thatched viewing deck overlooking the local water hole, which adds an intimately native ambiance to this lodge.

Superb cuisine and experienced, skillful rangers will give you an experience of Africa to remember forever. Luxury, thatched, twin bed chalets, with en-suite bathrooms, accommodate a maximum of fourteen guests.
