My husband is doing the 3 towers mountain bike race at Mankele and i've booked a place for us at Riverwild in the River Edge 2 bedroom Chalet for 3 nights...
The place is not up to standard! I've phoned Gerhard who's number was on a email you send me.
I told him that the place was very dirty, there is no dustbin, the cushions are dirty, the previous people that was staying there left their towels (dirty) hanging behind the door in the bathroom, the couch is so dirty I cant even sit on it and this self catering chalet dont even have a kettle!!
Gerhard said he will send someone to come and check and nobody showed up!!
After one terrible night at Riverwild, I've searched for another place to stay at...
I've packed my bags after on night and found other accommodation that was very good.
I think you must take Riverwild off your website because this place dont deserve to be on your web!
I won't recommend Riverwild for any one!!

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.
