Exeter is situated within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, renowned for having the best Big Five game-viewing in South Africa, if not the world. Located on the southwestern corner of the Kruger National Park, there are no restricting fences, thus enabling the animals to roam freely just as nature intended.
Tucked away in a quiet corner of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve’s western sector, River Lodge sits in the shade of a grove of ebony trees right on the edge of the Sand River.
Eight luxury suites spread out along the shady bank with dramatic close up views of the River, all with generous spaces and elegant bathrooms. Awake to the river rolling slowly past your front door and watch the denizens of the bush make their morning ablutions. Cool off in the private plunge pool, while enjoying the sight of a herd of elephant drinking or perhaps a hippo surfacing in the river below.
The full flavours of lunch acquire an extra edge on our open air dining deck, with the distant splashing of animals coming down to drink at the water’s edge. Re-live the excitement of your afternoon game drive around a roaring fire in the boma. Delicious Pan African meals, complimented by the finest South Africa wines, are shared around a blazing fire under a star strewn sky. Romantic candlelit dinners in the African bush, or on the deck of the guest suites, offer more memorable dining experiences.
Daily game drives provide an opportunity to track the Big Five in the company of an armed ranger and Shangaan tracker. Bush walks provide you with the opportunity to take a leisurely walk within easy reach of your lodge to experience the sights, smells and sounds of the African bush. An armed ranger will accompany you and will share his vast knowledge of the local fauna and flora. The game viewing continues all day, whether on a game drive or from the comfort of the Lodge’s shady viewing deck.
