The wildlife views from the large deck overlooking the river were phenomenal, the home cooked meals were really good, the staff was friendly, and our room was comfortable. It was also a great location for day drives into Kruger.

Excellent and comfortable Lodge for Kruger
River House Bush and Safari Lodge is an excellent location for visiting Kruger National Park. We have been in the lodge a few times already and we think it is the best option for visiting Kruger from Malelane. The lodge is small and comfortable, nicely furnished and very well managed. Johann and is staff are able to make our stay excellent. Last but not least, considering that the dinner and breakfast are included, this is one of the best option also from the price point of view.

Excellent experience
The host was very friendly and made my stay so welcome. There are many collection display around the whole property, and feel the heart of how the host decorate the place to make their guests happy. Overseeing the "hippo pool", there are always hippos having fun there. The meals are lovely, home-made food. I have had a very good experience there.

Fantastic
Best location ever right on river - elephants and hippos in throwing distance. Hosts could not have been more welcoming, kind and accommodating in this packed, interesting and eclectic lodge - we will be back! Thanks Johan and Duffy

Amazing place
I felt like I was returning home when I got a warm 'welcome back', the second time I visited the River House. It's a lovely place with lovely hosts and a stunning view across the Crocodile River, past the hippos, into the Kruger National Park. The breakfasts are amazing and it really is a good option if you want to do day trips into Kruger as it's so close to the gates. Personally I book-ended my trip to Kruger with a bit of luxury by staying at the magic River House on the way in and the way out.

Safari lodge
Fantastisk lodge med utsikt över crokodile river med flodhästar som lekte. Kändes som att bo mitt i krugerparken. Ägaren fixade en safari åt oss och vi såg alla big five.

Service exceptionnel, maison de caractère
Excellent séjour. L'endroit a du caractère, mais surtout les hôtes vous accueillent sans communes mesures. Un service rarement vu, même dans les palaces. Ambiance très "à la maison", qui n'est pas pour tout le monde, mais avec du personnel extrêmement charmant et attentionné. Bel espace surplombant la rivière ou voir les éléphants et autres animaux se rafraichir en buvant un verre.
