Relish the shade of ancient mahogany trees, dating back 800 years, when you relax after your safari in one of the 18 thatched villas which are raised on wooden walkways. Each room features an en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers and a wooden deck overlooking the river for you to watch the amazing birdlife.  

The lodge, which is the only one on the perennial Sabie River, offers signature Riverbed Dinners which is an experience not to be missed along with a night sleeping under the stars in their romantic treehouses.  

You can also cool off in the swimming pool before enjoying a treatment in the spa. Other facilities include; a sitting room decorated with traditional African artefacts, restaurant, bar, gym, secluded bird hide and private hammocks.
