We stayed at the River Lodge in January 2017 in 3 seperate rondavals with my family. I can honestly say that I never expected it to be so amazing. From the second we arrived, we were greeted by Aubrinah, Tiny and Justice and were made to feel so welcome. We then got to meet our amazing guide Elias, who went...

We decided to get the family together for a short break and booked three of their chalets. They are far more spacious than we'd anticipated and very very well equipped. The chalets are very well maintained and quiet. Excellent option for families with children. A great base to explore Kruger from and definitely somewhere we'll return to.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful this place is. We stayed at the River Lodge at the end of January for 4 nights where I celebrated my 21st birthday with my family and the staff couldn't do enough to make it so special. The Rondavels were so comfortable and clean, they were cleaned everyday, the beds were very comfortable...

We stayed at the Sefapane River Lodge, so inside the Kruger Park and with a few rondabels (cabins) located along the Olfants river. It was simply superb, first of all the location, with a few over the Olifants River, seeing hyppo's, waterbuk, elephants, crocodiles and more animals simply passing by. Great food and drinks too and the game drives in...

I stayed at the lodge in January 2017 with my wife and two children for 3 nights. The lodge is well located very close to the Kruger Gate. We stayed in the Safari House. Check in was swift and good. Staff could be a bit more welcoming though- usually a smile and a welcome drink would do the trick. The...

During our visit to kruger park, we stayed in this lodge. The lodge is quite big, but even it is a real resort, you are welcomed very personal. After every game drive, there was someone waiting to ask how it was! The restaurant is very good, and the rooms are very 'african style'. Liked our stay!

We booked our stay through booking.com, and as usual the information provided there was a bit lacking in substance. We ended up having two eight-bed houses for a total of eight people, which was a bit excessive. The houses were very nice, with their own kitchenettes if you wanted to cook yourself. There was a Spar nearby, so easy to...
