Lodge Details


A luxurious lodge in a wildlife rich area


Set in the Sabi Sands Reserve, which shares an unfenced border with Kruger National Park, set along the lush banks of the Sands River – a popular spot for wildlife.

Accommodation & Facilities

Each of the 8 suites has wonderful views to the river and the game that frequents it, even from your very own plunge pool. Suites all have adjoining bathrooms, with both indoor and outdoor showers. Suites are air-conditioned and spacious with an elegant, African safari style décor. Amenities include a hairdryer, personal bar, safe and mosquito nets.

In the main area you will find a swimming pool, comfortable lounge and dining room, all set within the leafy, evergreen thicket of the river banks. After a day out in the wild, re-live your day around the camp fire at the boma, the sounds of the African bush lasting long into the night.


Cuisine is simply delicious, accompanied by the finest selection of wine. Dine in the boma, the bush or the dining room.


Game drives are twice daily, early morning and later afternoon when the wildlife is at its most active. There are strict limits on the amount of vehicles at animal sightings here to keep crowds to a minimum. Bush walks are available too, a great way to get closer to the land, on the same level as the wildlife. The guides and trackers at Exeter River Lodge are of the highest standards. Each day you come back to the finest in service and cuisine – a great way to experience the finest South Africa has to offer.
