Goeiemôre, eet lekker!


We offer set menu lunches for coach groups passing through Malelane on their way to the Kruger National Park, Swaziland or Mocambique. Guests can stretch their legs, get a drink from the bar and enjoy the spectacular view until called to lunch at set tables on our veranda. Due to popularity, reservations need to be made well in advance.

The Bar

While away some time at our well-stocked bar - always open!


We serve a full African breakfast between 7 and 9 in the morning in the  breakfast room. We provide lunch boxes for guests who leave early on game drives. 


A  3-course meal-of-the-day is served from 6 pm till 8 pm in the dining room (included in the room tariff). Our local chef takes pride in preparing a traditional South African meal for you. Complement your meal with a choice from one of the fine wines in our collection, or the more-than-nice and down-to-earth house wine. Please let us know if there are any particular dietary requirements.


Do you prefer sleeping under the stars? Camp out in our cozy boma! Exchange stories around a campfire prior to having a hot shower before you settle down for the night, lulled to sleep by the night sounds of the bush. Available to groups (minimum 10 and maximum 20 people). Oztent available by special request. Reservations need to be made well in advance.


Start you life together on the wild side!

Our cozy chapel on the banks of the Crocodile River is ideal to host 40-60 wedding guests. Enjoy your special day in a beautiful and natural setting with spectacular views. River House Lodge will be yours for the occasion to enjoy with your family and friends as we will not accept other reservations, thereby ensuring your privacy.

Or do you fancy an "elopement wedding" in the spirit of the pandemic which forced us all to think outside the box? Have the ceremony on our deck, as is, and enjoy a lovely meal afterwards on the veranda. 

We make your wedding dreams come true...
