The refurbishment of River Lodge has now been completed! The first phase was completed in December 2015 and saw the general public areas re-decorated with stone-clad walls, new lounge seating spaces and a welcoming fireplace.
The second phase took place during the month of June 2016, during which the lodge was closed. Six tents have been replaced with Meru-style tents with almost 50% more floor space. The bed now faces glazed doors for a magnificent view of the riverbed or bush. Behind the oversized headboard, guests will find a generous dressing area and an open bathroom with an enclosed toilet and both an indoor and outdoor shower. The private decks now feature two sun loungers to laze away in between game drives.
Two of the eight air-conditioned tents have the same layout, furniture and amenities as the six meru tents, but these two tents themselves have a contemporary, double volume and square-shaped design with glass doors and large glass windows at the front and sides. These two Tented Suites also feature romantic mosquito nets and are the furthest away from the main lodge area.
The three Family Chalets have been fitted with new furniture and blinds giving a more spacious and light feel. The private decks of the Family Chalets also feature sun loungers.
We look forward to welcoming you to our corner of African paradise.
