River Lodge

At River Lodge, you need not move far to appreciate extraordinary wildlife, or to marvel at the spectacular riverside view. We have tried to capture the entrancing spirit of the Sabie River,  and always smile at that moment when we see our guests forging their own connection with that special energy that cannot be seen, but can definitely be felt.

Guests are encouraged to make themselves completely at home at River Lodge – may the time spent on safari remain the highlight of their visit to South Africa.

20 thatched rooms overlook the unfenced African bush, or the Sabie River.

  • 12 Luxury Rooms have bathroom en-suite, lounge area with mini bar and wooden deck from which to appreciate the wilds beyond.
