River Lodge sits on the banks of the Sabie River, positioned on a site with ancient trees dating back over 800 years. Facing due east, the lodge catches the sun as it rises over the Kruger National Park each glorious morning.
The 18 thatched rooms at River Lodge offer respite and protection from the Lowveld heat. Tranquil creams and beiges dominate the décor while each bathroom boasts earthy pebble in-laid floors. Additionally, each has outdoor & inside shower as well as a wooden viewing deck. The bedroom area is air-conditioned with an overhead fan. All rooms have mini-bar & telephone access and link up with public areas via raised wooden walkways.
In the main area guests will find a cozy lounge and bar with fireplace, an outdoor safari lounge, 2 swimming pools (heated in winter), wooden viewing decks, a secluded bird hide, a magnificent River Island Deck built right on the river, Lalamuka Health Spa & Gymnasium, curio shop & both indoor and open-air (Boma) dining areas.
