Just back from an amazing South Africian trip. Staying at the Exeter River Lodge was a dream come true. The entire complex was secure, remote, luxurious and staffed with pleasant and professional individuals. Exeter River Lodge(s) consist of 8 newly built spacious individual lodges. Clean, conveniently placed and beautifully situated, one cannot want more when staying at the Exeter River Lodge. Rooms are large, well designed, each having an outdoor jacuzzi/infinity pool, indoor and outdoor shower, where one looks out into the safari wilderness, lounging patio and inside den to name a few. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the manager, introduced to the staff and given a tour. All meals & beverages were provided, in addition to two safari's a day. One taking place in early morning, the other taking place later in the day. Our ranger and guide, Steve and Prince managed to find every animal that one could expect to see in an Africian safari. From lions feasting on a wild buffalo, to wild dogs in the midst of a successful hunt, seeing black rhinos, giraffes, impalas, hippos, leopard and her cub, lionesses, elephants, zebras and a wide variety of Africian birds, our trip was breathtaking, exciting and adventurous. Staff was very attentive and kept the agenda full of surprises. The Exeter River Lodge went over and above our expectation. If you are thinking of experiencing an Africian safari, the Exeter River Lodge is the place to stay.
