Having booked 1yr in advance for our honeymoon, our expectations of the lodge were not only met but went further. Fantastic rangers, fantastic food, fantastic staff and beautiful surroundings. Because Riverbend sits in a private concession, you're experience of game drives is excellent and second to none. The lodge itself was gloriously presented and very well equipped with strong wifi. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which was magnificent, seeing the African sunrise from our bed and chilling by the plunge pool with wild animals walking 200 yards away was something I'll never forget. What makes this lodge the best was the people, they want you to fall in love with their way of life and we did. I implore anyone considering the Riverbend Lodge to just do it, you won't regret it!
