Tranquility, luxury and exquisite cuisine describe the gracious living at River Bend Lodge. Anchored on endless horizons, flanked by the majestic Zuurberg Mountains and situated on a 14 000ha private concession within the malaria-free Addo Elephant National Park, River Bend is a perfect balance between the Eastern Cape bush and the sheer elegance of fine country life.

River Bend is home to abundance of wildlife including elephant, lion, buffalo, and antelope and over 300 bird species. Linked by a meandering pathway through the lush gardens, each of the luxury suites offers a distinctly individual, tranquil and private retreat. The spacious suites open up onto private patios from where guests can soak up the scents and sounds of the bushveld. The lavish Honeymoon Suite leads out onto a secluded patio and plunge pool where romantic candle-lit dinners can be served.

All suites are air-conditioned, equipped with ceiling fans, electronic safes, and a mini bar, satellite TV, free Wi-Fi, hairdryer and en-suite bathroom with separate bath and shower. Suites with inter-leading doors are available for families.
The cuisine at River Bend is described as classic French with a modern contemporary twist. Matched with the finest wines from around the country, a meal at River Bend is a superb gastronomic experience. From tempting breakfasts through to late-night nibbles, each individually plated dish, created from the finest locally grown ingredients, is presented to guests in the spirit of warm hospitality.

Activities are tailored to suit guest’s interests and restful schedule; they include personalized game drives, wine tasting, walking with giraffes, guided walks, tracking courses, birding, bush picnics, mountain hikes and pampering treatments. For the kids there is a mini-rangers programme, baking with the chef, a selection of DVDs, spa treatments and mobile playrooms for the little ones.

River Bend Lodge is a true family destination. All children are welcome and special care is taken to ensure that children of all ages have a truly memorable experience. Separate game drives for families are available.

2 Reviews on River Bend Lodge

Our stay at River Bend Lodge was truly an unforgettable experience. The management team is extremely professional, yet warm and friendly. We felt so special during our stay. Joe, our ranger, was excellent! He is extremely passionate about his job, and very knowledgeable. We had such a special time and we were blessed to see buffalo, elephant, rhino, giraffes, zebra, monkey, ostridge, wild hogs, and even a lynx. The ultimate thrill was the lions. The accommodation is outstanding and the food is fantastic. This was our 40th wedding anniversary and my husband’s birthday, and I would not have wanted to celebrate this anywhere else. We highly recommend a visit to River Bend Lodge.
