Large, luxurious villas with private pools and views. the staff and guides are very competent and friendly. We saw the Big 5 multiple times during morning and evening game drives. Meals were prepared well and they were gracious about accommodating dietary preferences. While they provide lap robes and hot water bottles for morning drives in winter., having a knit cap... More

The reception was welcoming and friendly. We were there when it was very dry, so not much happened at the river. Guides and personnel very helpful. Chalet spacious and luxurious. The food was exotic, but tasteless and could be so much better. We saw buffalo, elephants and leopards, but I kept on feeling that these were almost canned with bait... More

This will be lengthy but this lodge and its people deserve the time. We chose River Lodge because we were traveling during dry season and well, its on a river which we thought would gather animals. We couldn't have been more correct. Upon arrival we were told we had to be escorted as a leopard had made a kill last... More

Wow. This safari camp was perfect, and went above and beyond anything that was expected. The villa that I was in was extremely large, and had a private plunge pool for each villa. These villas had heat, air conditioning, heated running water, a bath tub, and indoor shower and an outdoor shower. This camp was also very secure, every window... More

Our third visit - and it just remains one of the best Safari locations and experiences in Southern Africa. The game viewing is superb and our Guide Mac is just one of the most experienced and professional guides we have had the pleasure of traveling with. The lodge is just so luxurious and an absolute treat to live in the... More

We met two honeymooning couples during our stay, and no wonder--this place is gorgeous, luxurious and flat-out romantic. This was the second of three AndBeyond Lodges we stayed at over seven nights, and while we loved them all, this was our favorite. The rooms (houses?) are enormous--with indoor and outdoor showers, soaking tubs, a sitting area, foyer, private plunge pool... More

My wife and I have just returned to Cape Town having spent 5 nights at Exeter which was thoroughly wonderful. The lodge is situated right on the river which is unfortunately running very low because of the dreadful drought but this has turned the river bed into a sandy pathway for the game and in our time there we saw...

We spent 3 nights at Exeter and LOVED every minute! We have been to several different andBeyond properties in Africa and this one managed to raise the bar. First off, the animals!

We had a fly in safari & 2 night stay - we had an amazing team look after us. Given the short timeframe we were super pleased to have seen an amazing variety of game (even close up & personal with a leopard in the camp). The entire team was friendly, full of personality & eager to see to our... More
