This was our second stay, the first one was at the Mountain Lodge. The River lodge is self catering and much larger. As our children are older now it is not suitable to spend a holiday together as a family in the Mountain Lodge. We knew to expect the stunning surroundings but it was still breathtaking. And on this visit... More

The two day stay at the Maliba River Lodge was very enjoyable and relaxing. We had a very good orientation as soon as we arrived and whatever we asked for was arranged for us like the hiking with a guide, and four spa treatments which was booked in the morning of the same day. The rooms were clean and very... More

a group of us spent 4 nights at riverside lodge. Chalets are top class and the heating provided makes for good comfort even when cold outside. The walks and scenery are excellent and in the evenings we ate at the restaurant which is 5 star in every way. Staff are always friendly, accommodating and well trained and in particular our...

We had the opportunity to holiday at the River Lodge 1 for two nights. Although the rain messed up our holiday we had a 'splashing' time. We hiked into the mountains and swam in the cold river. The accommodation is excellent and delivers on what it promises in the brochures. I will definitely go back and yes we already planned... More

It really is in the middle of nowhere so be sure that you bring wine and food if you don't want to have your meals in the Mountain lodge.... More

We had a lovely holiday here over the December period. My husband and I visited the main lodge a few years ago, but decided to return with family for a self-catering holiday. The good points: The view is amazing and visible from most rooms in the house. The sound of the river is loud and makes you feel like you... More

From the moment we arrived at Maliba Lodge we knew this was something very special. From the friendliness and attentiveness of all the staff , to the most exquisite food, the beautiful hotel and the majestic scenery, it made for a memorable experience. We stayed in one of the riverside huts which offer good value but more basic accommodation. There... More

Surrounded by mother nature, comfortable accommodations (we stayed in the River Lodge with two young children), friendly staff, and delicious meals. Horseback riding with the children on the flat trail along the river was great. We didn't want to leave!
