From the moment that one arrives until the time when one has to reluctantly depart, one is indulged with superb hospitality, a fabulous suite, wonderful game drives and excellent food. The lodge has an inviting common area with a wonderful view of the Sand River where one can see quite a variety of wildlife. I spent four nights here and... More

Our ride from Nelspruit airport was over two hours to the Exeter river lodge. I believe that there is a closer airport in the Kruger national park that is open but was not when we made our plans. The lodge is simply beautiful with absolutely the highest level of service. Warm towels to greet you every time you come in... More

We had a fantastic 4 day stay at Exeter River Lodge - the whole experience was wonderful. Fantastic game viewing, including two very close encounters with lions and several viewings of leopards. Professional and friendly staff. Fabulous food and a room with a view to die for.

Luxurious individual cottages in front of flowing Exeter River with beautiful views. Like the other &Beyond property we stayed at, the food and service shine in this fantastic hotel. We were lucky to have various sightings of leopards during our 3- day stay: mating, cubs, eating a gazelle on a tree, etc., just incredible!

Stayed at Exeter River Lodge for three nights in mid-August. As is expected with any location in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, the wildlife sightings were excellent; we saw the Big Five plus cheetah – but more importantly, the sightings were of good quality. In particular, we saw at least five different leopards, three big lions and accompanying lionesses, as... More

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
