The River House Guest Lodge


Warm, welcoming and old fashioned African hospitality awaits you at our unique guest lodge on the banks of the Crocodile River in Mpumalanga, South Africa.

This is your home away from home, where you can while away the hours on our viewing deck with regular sightings of game or cool off and refresh yourself in our swimming pool with a view.

River House is an ideal stepping stone to visit the Kruger National Park and surrounding areas. (Malelane Gate to the Kruger is a mere 12 minute drive from the lodge.)
