Tengile River Lodge, Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Tengile River Lodge holds an idyllic private position on a bend of the Sand River. The nine secluded suites, nestled in the dappled shade of the cool riverine forest, and the leisure areas, all exquisitely mirror the beauty of the outdoors.

Tengile River Lodge holds an idyllic private position on a bend of the Sand River.  Each area of the lodge ensures magnificent river views from all angles. The nine secluded suites, nestled in the dappled shade of the cool riverine forest, and the leisure areas, all exquisitely mirror the beauty of the outdoors. Impact and sustainability are at the heart of every space at Tengile River Lodge. Earthy textured materials have been repurposed from the landscape, including the Selati Railway that paves the lodge’s terrazzo floors, that once linked the City of Gold, Johannesburg to bustling Maputo, and traversed through the game reserve. 

A dazzling chandelier floats above the lodge dining room table, constructed from smooth green sea glass.  Feature walls are created from layers of slate stone and rich colours of brass, gold, khaki green and emerald complement the natural tones. 

Keep an eye out for Africa’s iconic species on twice-daily game drives, interpretive bush walks, and drink in the river view from your suite or the extensive viewing deck.

Be captivated by spectacular close encounters and breathtaking sightings of leopard and other wildlife as you explore the world-renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
