The River Lodge

Embark on an exclusive journey into the beating heart of Africa within the greater Kruger National Park!

Wrapped in luxury amidst the untamed African bush, you will experience unsurpassed game viewing opportunities in the Thornybush Private Nature Reserve, open to the greater Kruger National Park.

Big Five experiences blend seamlessly with 5-star service and amenities.

With just six rooms, including the superb two- bedroom Royal Suite, the luxurious accommodation is limited to 12 guests ensuring a personalized wilderness experience, where the opportunity to reserve the entire camp for exclusive use is possible.

The public areas are elegantly furnished and comfortable, with a relaxing lounge and dining area. 


To complement the wonderful weather, a sparkling rim-flow swimming pool overlooking a covert water hole, is on hand for a refreshing dip, an amenity often shared by thirsty groups of Elephants.
