We had a very nice stay at Rio Vista Lodge. Very warm welcoming. Nice, clean room. Good service.  2 swimming pools to enjoy. Great breakfast and dinner at the restaurant.

Just outside the Malelane Kruger gate, this spot was a pleasant stop over. Affordable, clean and comfortable. On the first night we had drinks at the deck restaurant and saw elephants grazing underneath us as we sipped our drinks.

I've stayed here a few times during business trips. Always great and friendly service. Clean rooms and the food at the restaurant is great.

Stayed for 3 nights at this establishment. Picture perfect close to nature and very neat. The Kruger Park and town is close by which makes this a perfect location. The Deck Restaurant next to the river is excellent for game viewing while enjoying a sundowner or meal. To the owners and ALL staff a very big thank you for your great hospitality and friendliness.Would definitely recommend Rio Vista. Kobus & Kim Saayman
