River Bend Lodge

A stylish country house atmosphere and a personalised approach to the safari experience are what distinguish River Bend Lodge. Set in a 14,000ha private concession of the renowned Addo Elephant Park in South African’s malaria-free Eastern Cape, the lodge has exclusive access to the concession, so that your game-viewing really is exclusive and authentic. Both family-friendly and romantic enough for couples, River Bend excels in tailoring activities to your interests, adding walks with giraffes, photography workshops, birding expeditions and spa pampering to the enthralling game drives, which include all the Big 5 and many more fascinating creatures, as well as the legendary Addo elephants.

Just eight luxury suites ensure an intimate feel to the lodge. Each one is spacious and serene furnished with five star luxury in a colonial country house style. King size beds are made up in soft percale linen and arranged so that you look out through double doors, over your private patio to the open landscapes of the reserve. Air-conditioning and ceiling fans, satellite TV, mini-bar, wifi and electronic safe are all integrated without intruding on the old-world feel of the decor. The honeymoon suite has the addition of a sparkling private plunge pool on its verandah, as well as an outdoor shower making a wonderfully romantic retreat. The lodge also has a fenced swimming pool in the gardens to while away a summer afternoon.

Informative rangers make every game drive an entertaining and educational experience, tracking elephants, lion, rhino and so much more than just the Big 5. One of the few South African lodges where young children are allowed on game drives, River Bend allocates a separate vehicle to families, so that they can go at their own pace. There’s also a mini-rangers programme for kids to enjoy while you relax, kids treatments in the Plumbago spa and plenty of age-appropriate toys.

World-class cuisine at the Silverthorns restaurant rounds off the evening in style, or choose from the in-room dining menu. The staff is friendly and attends to every need, so that guests truly enjoy a unique and personal safari experience in a very special place.
