About Oori River Lodge

Oori River Lodge overlooks a scenic stretch of the Crocodile River Valley. The extensive gardens blend into indigenous riverine bush with lawns sweeping to the river’s edge.

The lodge is in the heart of the Oori Nature Reserve and is fully game fenced. Leisurely walks can be taken in the extensive gardens and in the bushveld environment of the reserve itself. A wide range of bird life can be observed and there is always the chance of spotting the reserve’s varied game, which includes kudu, impala, blesbok, wildebeest and zebra as well as other small mammals and reptiles. The charming, self-catering cottage is a thatched cottage for two guests, consisting of a comfortable living room, a double bedroom, a kitchen and dining room area with a bathroom. Kitchen facilities include a microwave and electric hob. Outside the cottage is a large paved terrace leading onto a barbecue area with its own private lawn overlooking the river.

Oori River Lodge is just 5 km off the R512, the road that leads to Hartebeestpoort and it is close to the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the museum in the Cradle of Humankind. The Sterkfontein Caves and The Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve are also in the vicinity. The Lodge is only half an hour from the hustle and bustle of Monte Casino and Fourways, one of Gauteng’s premier shopping centres. Lanseria Airport is a mere 15 minutes’ drive away. There are some very good restaurants in the area. Oori River Lodge is the perfect place to unwind and relax in tranquil and secluded surroundings.

a great braai area, the river is amazing however all the papers and other "things that hang on the reeds across the river makes it so unpleasant to look at. wish there was housekeeping as we stayed for 2 nights, The place can also do with new towels.

Amazing stay, awesome accommodation, incredible hospitality and an all round great trip! Enjoyed my stay, food was good and can’t complain 1 bit to say the least! Highly recommended if you’re looking for some quiet time away!

The ambiance, tranquility was 100 percent, but the breakfast out of 10 scored a 1. This is a B&B and for the price should have out did them selves for the breakfast. They supplied 2 slice egg toast and mashed a Checkers budget burger pattie and called it a fritter with a little baked beans. The welcome and communication by the hosts were excellent. No microwave or bar fridge facility.

We had a wonderful time, Wilna was incredibly hospitable and friendly. Lovely sundowner cocktails overlooking the Crocodile river was our highlight.

What a beautiful tranquil place, with owners who walked the extra mile after our car breakdown just before we had to leave. The cottage was quaint and cosy with everything we needed. There is a gravel road, but it takes you through a game reserve on the way to the property. Lovely to have seen zebras, kudus, giraffe etc. I would recommend this place anyday to anyone for a weekend getaway into nature.
