Things to do at &Beyond Exeter River Lodge
For those looking for an active thrill beyond the excitement of Big Five sightings on a game drive vehicle, we offer an opportunity to connect with the African bush, interacting with all its inhabitants, from largest to smallest. Embark on an adventure where your feet tread in the tracks of zebra and buffalo, your nostrils fill with the scent of crushed wild grasses as you push through the bush and all six senses re-awaken as Africa touches you and you touch Africa.
CASCADES & CANYON SPECTACULAR
This is an exhilarating flight that swoops over deep and mysterious gorges, through lush valleys bursting with vegetation and colour. You will be collected from your lodge in the southern part of the Sabi Sands and chauffeured through to Hazyview, where you will meet your helicopter pilot. You will linger above cascading waterfalls, allowing for spectacular photographic opportunities. The flight will continue along the escarpment to God’s Window, which offers awesome panoramic views of the bushveld below and on to the fascinating and dramatic rock formations of the 1 000-metre-deep, 30-kilometre-long Blyde River Canyon, (the third deepest and greenest Canyon in the World). You will have a bird’s eye view of the curious Three Rondavels! We will land at a sight with magnificent views of the Mpumalanga Lowveld, where you are invited to enjoy a delicious picnic accompanied by South African Sparkling wine. Once the helicopter lands for the final time, you will be transferred back to your luxurious lodge in the heart of the Sabi Sands.

MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES
Set out in an open 4x4 safari vehicle in the company of a ranger and tracker team, who will attempt to track your favourite animals. The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is well known for its leopard sightings and you may well spot one of these elusive cats resting after a successful night hunt. You will stop for refreshments at a scenic spot during your drive. &Beyond’s professionally trained guides will ask you about your favourite wildlife and will do their best to ensure that your preferences are met, whether it is tracking a particular species or spending more time enjoying each sighting and getting to know the habits of the animals. They will also tell you about the vegetation of the region and will explain the behaviour of the animals that you come across. In some cases, the guides will be able to identify individual animals and let you know about their history and habits.
