Exeter River Lodge




In the western corner of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve the Exeter River Lodge offers an exclusive blend of tranquil luxury accommodation and thrilling game viewing. Sabi Sand is adjacent to the world famous Kruger Park giving you the benefits of a private game reserve with the Big Five moving freely between the two areas.


Exeter River Lodge is nestled on the banks of the Sand River. The game is prolific in this area that is particularly well known for its frequent leopard sightings. In absence of any borders between Sabi Sand and the Kruger Park wildlife roams freely across an area roughly the size of New Jersey. Beside the Big Five you will be able to view various antelope, cheetah, hyena and some fascinating birdlife.



Tucked away by the Sand River the Exeter River Lodge offers air conditioned suites with indoor and outdoor showers, an elegant bath, private plunge pools and spacious decks overlooking the river.


The scenic location of the lodge makes for exclusive dining experiences on the spacious deck. Another popular option is dining in the bush. Savour a delicious meal, while taking in the sights and sounds of the wild!



Game drives with the Exeter River Lodge guides are an exciting and educational experience. In open 4×4 vehicles the guides and trackers are dedicated to giving you an exclusive wildlife experience. The game drives are conducted in the early mornings and late afternoon – the best time to view your favourite African animals.
