One river with two destinations named The River's Edge and The Riverwild; both are unique in their setting, offering guests a choice of accommodation and ambience to experience. Riverwild is the ideal venue for events such as bush conferences, corporate and family breakaways, customer incentives, 4x4 trials and team building events.

River's Edge offers secluded wood cabins elevated among age-old Matumi trees, providing a bird's eye view of the river as it cascades down the gorge. Riverwild offers a bush camp in a class of its own.

Guests may participate in a wide range of exciting adventure and recreation activities presented with the support and encouragement of competent guides. Activities on request include the Riverwild 4x4 Route, abseiling, river tubing and archery. Nature lovers can observe many species of veld flowers, butterflies and bird life on the farm.

Although not essential a SUV or similar vehicle is recommended for the last 9 km dirt road to Riverwild.

10 Reviews on Riverwild

We stayed 2 nights while visiting Sudwala Caves. Access road had been recently graded, so no problem in the dry season for a sedan vehicle. Lodge on the river locations can't be beaten. We had hassles getting linen in our cabin, but were assisted. No/poor cell phone reception, so getting assistance regarding activities or complaints other than from the staff on site is not possible.

Enjoyed our stay beautiful place needs up keep.I think it a bit expensive for what you get it is in the same price range as Hazy view cabanas but you cannot compare.We were short of several things which we only got by midday the second day their was suppose to be archery river tubbing but no one to assist.The cabins could do with bath mats in showers a shelf of dressing table in the rooms.Bathroom needs somewhere where you can leave toiletries and shower needs somewhere to leave soap.Other than that they need to spend a little bit on the matinence of the place.We would go back if the place is fixed up a bit even though the road is bad to get their,it is such a beautiful place with lots of potential.

I had a lovely stay, clean and tidy accommodation facilities, very tranquil and relaxing. The downside was sourcing a braai, no braai grids, had to walk around looking for usable braai spares to build a fire. Some areas are dilapidated, the place needs a little maintenance and repair here and there.

We stayed in the 4 bedroom lodge for the long weekend and it was amazing. The scenery is breathtaking and the lodge is comfortable and has a home-like appeal. The lodge provides you with everything you need for a perfect getaway in the bush. Although, the 9km stretch of road to Riverwild does take some time if you not in a SUV as it's a gravel/dirt road with a lot of rocks and stones.

Camping facilities are suitable for adventurous campers who want to live with basics. There was a problem with the warm water element and there were problems with the day/night switch for light on the camping grounds. The workers were however very friendly and helpful.
