Stunning location! Watched elephants, wild boar and other animals while alfresco dining on the deck. The staff was always there to provide what you want and went over and above when it was needed (the river swelled when we were there and they took our entire family to another nearby resort)

This New Yorker has very high standards and the River Lodge did NOT disappoint! Stayed there 3 nights for anniversary trip with my wife and from start to finish, the service and resort were phenominal! Terrific staff, wonderful BBQ in the sand pit, great villa and lots of surprises! I highly recommend Exeter River Lodge for a special occasion. It's... More

I have stayed at various other &beyond Lodges and my friend recommended this one to us as she had been to Exeter in April 2014, so we had high expectations. We were advised on our arrival that 8 people are always to a vehicle ? we have been on many safaris and have never had this, when i questioned the... More

From start to finish, Exeter delivered the experience of a lifetime. We arrived shorty before 4PM (teatime or one libation) after a 45 minute flight from Joburg to Neilspruit where we were picked up for our 3 1/2 hr drive to Exeter. I think we saw most go the Big 5 before even entering Exeter. So, no rest for us.... More

We spent 3 nights at Exeter just recently and it was a most magical experience in so many ways. Compliments must go to management, Craig esp, who clearly makes sure that everything runs smoothly. The hospitality and warm welcomes received by every member of staff at any time of the day is remarkable. As mentioned by many reviewers, the staff... More

This was the second part of our honeymoon booked and recommended to us through Imagine Africa. Tarron and her team (especially our Butler Difference) were outstanding. We have an amazing tracker called Prince and an outstanding guide, Mac. This was the most amazing place to stay to experience this amazing place. We stayed for 5 nights in room 1. The... More

Just returned from enjoying 4 memorable days here. We went there with no real expectations, not really knowing what to expect. Well worth the travel. All the staff and service are excellent. On the game drives 2 daily, we saw all the Big 5, though it was spread out over the four days. We even watched some from our lodge.... More

We just spent 3 days at the Exeter River Lodge, 2 drives a day to see all that we had hoped for. We were quite lucky, saw a mother leopard and her 2 cubs feeding in a tree,as the hyena watched,hopefully. We saw lions mating, the rest of the big five and much more. Excellent and instructive rangers,I learned way... More

We spent a fabulous 3 nights here. Suits are huge and luxurious with every detail you could think of and more, service was impeccable, food was superb, and oh of course - the game drives in Sabi Sands are just unbeatable.
