We had an absolutely fabulous time at River Bend Lodge. I highly recommend this wonderful place - our accommodation even had a view over a watering hole where a turtle, warthogs, ostriches, baboons, zebras and a whole herd of elephants came visiting. Loved the outdoor shower. Wonderfully friendly, competent and welcoming staff. We loved it so much, we stayed an extra night.
It was a great experience! We were very well received by the manager Wayne and were fortunate to have the Lodge to ourselves all weekend! We were the only guests !! We did the safari with our friend Noma the Ranger, great company and explained us a lot about the park and the animals! Was very good! Excellent room, spotless breakfast and dinner and first-rate service! We recommend and will certainly be back in the summer!
Great house and gardens and bedrooms
The food was delicious. The staff were friendly. Excellent location.
Rooms were fairly small and modest. TV in room did not work. Wifi did not work 50 per cent of the time. After booking I was told the spa therapist was on annual leave - a major reason I had booked at the lodge in the first place. Room took a long time to warm up - we were uncomfortably cold. Had to flush the toilet twice. Not luxury accommodation at all.
Beautiful location. Wonderful stay. Great and very attentive staff to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Great food. Hands up to Emma the chef. A special thank you to John our ranger who went the extra mile for a very special game drive. Unforgettable experience.
