&Beyond Exeter River Lodge

Perched on the edge of the Sand River in the world famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve, eight spacious riverside suites allow guests dramatic views of the river. 

Padded loungers beckon from the private veranda of your suite, inviting you to while away an afternoon of activities in the greenery and admiring the occasional herd of elephant taking their daily bath.

Big Five game viewing with excellent leopard sightings and the perfect amount of privacy.
