We were 4 couples who spent two nights at Exeter river lodge. The staff are excellent. The food was very good. The individual lodges and splash pools are wonderful. You are surrounded by beauty. We saw elephants, Rhino's and a leopard strolling in front of our lodge. It was AMAZING. We enjoyed the game drives and the trackers. They were knowledgeable. We did suggest that they needed to upgrade their wi-fi/internet connection as we had to be in contact with family during Hurricane back home in USA. They were planning an upgrade in 2013 as well as some upgrade in the lodges itself. You are in the wild, and have to be careful. We had a leopard strolling around camp, having the staff walk you too your room made me a little bit more happier.
It was wonderful when we came back from game drives to have the staff waiting for nice warm or cool cloth to wipe your hands from dust etc. I would recommend visiting Exeter. It is a small intimate lodge. Just what we wanted. We would have liked to have access to fitness area/ spin bike / or yoga stretching area. After all the food you eat you do need to do something.
