River Lodge

With eight Luxury Rooms, six Superior Luxury Rooms, and four River Suites including a Family Suite, it’s for you to choose which best suits you – but the extraordinary view comes standard. Wooden walkways lead off to a spa, gym and pool, and back to the main lodge, where the deck’s connected water features give the impression of floating on the river. Whether you enjoy your time together socially or quietly in the bar, restaurant, Gallery or firepit lounge, the running theme here is luxury living.

A Closer Look

  • Our Mack & Madi kids’ programme surprises and delights young explorers – and keeps them out of mischief
  • Dining – from pop-up bush breakfasts to riverbed dinners, and lunch feasts in between – is as anticipated as the safaris
  • For our Jewish guests, we offer kosher cuisine, freshly prepared on-site in a separate kitchen
  • Wine pairings elevate each meal – our collection favours renowned Cape producers and its lesser-known estates, adding to your sense of discovery
  • Our MORE Gallery includes a safari boutique retailing rare and beautiful items, an art exhibition, and Creative Lab turning your photos into personal artworks

As a guest of River Lodge, you have the option of elevating your safari to a million-star experience with a night in our Chalkley or Kingston Treehouse. This experience is charged for at R3 950 per person sharing per night, over and above the lodge rate.
