We had the most wonderful and exciting time on our first Safari adventure. The staff, rooms and food were outstanding. Our guide, Justin, made the daily animal sighting so interesting as he filled our days with knowledge and animal life information. He was the best! Everyone and everything at the lodge was superior and I would return tomorrow if I... More

We stayed for 4 nights in July. This was only our second safari lodge so we aren't very experienced but Exeter River was first class, 5 star all the way. Game viewing was perfect, saw it all and more. Food was amazing. Room was a perfect nest for 2. The extra surprises were so much fun - breakfast in the... More

My stay at Exeter River Lodge was amazing in many ways. First and foremost Exeter Lodge is so incredibly special because of the team of people that run and work in the lodge. This team has a huge amount of warmth in the service that they give that it feels like a home away from home. Leisha is an excellent... More

We stayed here for 4 nights after Ngala, thinking it would not be as good as what we had seen already, we were in for a treat. This place is 5 star rooms, staff and food. The game viewing in the Sabi Sands was brilliant, we could not have dreamed to see all we did. Rooms are for two people... More

Wow, what an experience, what a place!! We loved it!! Icon Expeditions (Leigh-Ann) recommended this place after we told her that we wanted to see predators in action. And for longer periods of time. We wanted to see the hunt and kill. Very rare to see. You have to be very lucky. When we were in the Serengeti viewing the... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here as a treat for our wedding anniversary. The place is simply stunning; 8 guest rooms by the river, unfussy but luxurious and extremely comfortable. The staff are attentive without compromising privacy and the food is absolutely exceptional - the only shame was we were rarely hungry enough to want it... More

Visited in a group of six. Can't speak highly enough of all the staff - rangers, trackers, chefs, everyone. Saw big five. Ugly five, beautiful bird life and had lots of laughs. June was a great time of year to see lots of activity with the young males of the varies species vying for dominance and mating rights. Teenage males... More

Having traveled across Africa before and Sabi Sands before, I cant emphasize what an amazing experience we had at this lodge. William who was our guide is the best guide we have ever had out of the many many lodges we have stayed in. He made our trip with his personality, passion for the bush and enthusiasm and determination to... More

I returned to Exeter River Lodge six years after my first South African safari and my stay was every bit as special as my first. The lodge itself is beautiful and on a stunning setting on the river. Each day - whether it was breakfast, lunch, dinner or just lounge - there was something interesting unfolding right in front of... More
