Accomodation Details

Here you can expect a sophisticated interpretation of the traditional safari lodge, with light and bright contemporary décor. Limited walls allow a seamless flow between inside and out.

The lodge recently reopened after an extensive renovation, introducing a new sense of brightness and space. Wooden walkways lead off to a spa, gym and pool, and back to the main lodge, where the deck’s connected water features give the impression of floating on the river. Whether you enjoy your time together socially or quietly, the running theme here is simple and natural luxury living.

Living Luxury

Appreciate the wilderness
The lodge’s eight Luxury Rooms, six Superior Luxury Rooms and four River Suites are spaced along a path to reveal splendid river views, and make for a very personal safari stay. This is where couples, families and friends come together to reconnect with one another and Mother Nature.

The River Suites, each fronted by a plunge pool and set further away from the main lodge, are the most spacious and private – and also include a Family Suite. It’s for you to choose which accommodation best suits you – but the extraordinary view comes standard. Beyond your retreat, relax at the guest pool or in the spa, get active in the gym, or browse the MORE Gallery. You can also turn your safari photos into artful souvenirs in the Creative Lab.
