Exeter River Lodge

The Exeter River Lodge is perched on the edge of the Sand River in the world famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve and features spacious riverside suites that allow guests to enjoy the dramatic views of the river. The full flavors of lunch acquire an extra edge on the open air dining deck, with the distant splashing of animals coming down to drink at the water’s edge as a gentle reminder of Africa. Later, give in to the lull of the silent waters and sink into the plush sofas in the shared lounge area, drinking in the peace and solitude.

Awake to the river rolling slowly past your front door and watch the denizens of the bush make their morning ablution as each of the spacious riverside suites provide guests with dramatic views of the river. Follow the example of the hippo wallowing in the river and seek refuge from the heat of the afternoon in the personal plunge pool on the deck of your suite. Or simply retire for a restful siesta or a quiet hour with a good book in the cool interior of your spacious suite. While the elephant cavort in the river below you can indulge in your own outdoor shower - just as refreshing but without the added adventure of mud!

Re-live the excitement of your afternoon game drive around a roaring fire in the boma. Linger over dinner while you listen to the sounds of the African bush - the distant yipping of a jackal, nervous chuckle of a hyena or strident wail of a bush baby.

Exeter River Lodge Activities

As dawn breaks over the African bush, a gentle tap on your door will wake you to the delights of a new day. Your ranger will discuss what you hope to see that day over fragrant tea or coffee and morning biscuits or rusks. Set out in an open 4x4 safari vehicle in the company of a ranger and tracker team, who will attempt to track your favorite animals. The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is well known for its leopard sightings and you may well spot one of these elusive cats resting after a successful night hunt. You will stop for refreshments at a scenic spot during your drive. This game drive begins in the late afternoon and lasts until after dark, when spotlights are used for a glimpse into the nocturnal bush life. Track spotted hyena as they call to each other on an evening hunt or look out for the beautifully patterned civet cat. Enjoy sundowner's in a scenic location as the sun slowly sinks beneath the horizon.
