River Lodge

River Lodge is situated within the renowned Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve with its reputation for the best game-viewing region in South Africa. Bordering the Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sands area has 65 000 hectares of prime 'Big 5' country.

Game Viewing
With such a large area of available land, the game viewing is spectacular on every scale. Idyllic river crossings where croc and hippos laze, open savannah with plains animals, such as zebra and giraffe and all the other big game animals.

Nestled in the shade of Ebony trees and overlooking the Sand River, the Lodge has 8 luxurious suites with bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers, private decks and plunge pools. African colours, textures and shapes adorn the rooms and reflect Africa's culture and mood. Relax on the private deck of your suite while viewing a herd of elephant in the river below or perhaps a hippo surfacing in the waters.

Magnificently positioned lounges and dining areas overlook the Sand River and compliment the finest cuisine. Sumptuous dishes, suiting all culinary tastes can be enjoyed in an open-air boma, in the dining room or even in the bush, and the food is complimented by a fine selection of wines. All meals, drinks and wine are included.
