Tucked away in a quiet corner of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve’s western sector, Exeter 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. 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.
8 air-conditioned suites Romantic African bush dinners Private plunge pools Outdoor showers
At Exeter River Lodge there are magnificently positioned guest sitting and dining areas overlooking the Sand River. A giant sausage tree provides shade for long, lazy afternoon lunches. Delicious Pan African meals, complimented by the finest South Africa wines, are shared in the open air boma 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.
