The spirit of &Beyond Tengile River Lodge

Meaning “tranquil” in the local Tsonga language, &Beyond Tengile River Lodge holds an idyllic private position on a bend of the Sand River, with serene river views from every vantage point. Space and flow are the heroes of this inspired lodge design, while the unrivalled game viewing area traverses over 10 500 hectares (26 000 acres) of the celebrated Sabi Sand Reserve.

The lodge features nine secluded suites, nestled in the dappled shade of the cool riverine forest, each with soothing river outlooks. Their elevated position creates the illusion that they are lightly floating over the riverbed. Space is taken to an unprecedented level in these guest suites. In addition to a master bedroom, bathroom and outdoor shower, there is a lounge, dining area, and bar, together with a private deck, swimming pool, and outdoor seating and dining area.

The guest area offers a mixed selection of open, interactive, and private spaces. Bespoke pieces of artwork and furniture, together with fabrics and finishes, celebrate the talent of South African artists and designers. The design of this common area ensures a seamless indoor-outdoor flow, with the viewing deck a highlight point. The massage and gym area offers guests yet another haven of well-being and tranquillity.

Sustainability elements in the lodge design include thermal efficiency, a minimal ecological footprint achieved through careful environmental auditing, as well as state-of-the-art wastewater and sewer treatment systems. Strict vehicle limits at game sightings ensure the exclusivity of the wildlife experiences.

With twice-daily game drives, interpretive bush walks, the river outlooks from all the guest suites, and that of the extensive viewing deck, guests are guaranteed a feast of undiluted and unforgettable wild-magic moments.
