Welcome to Tengile River Lodge

Situated in a perfect position on the banks of the Sand River, with sweeping river views from every vantage point, lies Tengile River Lodge. Meaning ‘tranquil’ in the local language, the lodge certainly has an advantage over all others in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.

The reserve benefits from a great diversity of wildlife including the Big Five as it neighbours and shares a 50 km (31mi) unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park. World renowned for its prolific leopard sightings, strict vehicle limits at sightings ensure the exclusivity of an up-close game viewing experience with game drives traversing an area of 10 500 hectares (26 000 acres).

This magnificent lodge features nine enormous, air-conditioned, secluded suites, dotted in the dappled shade of the bushveld, each with panoramic river views. In addition to a master bedroom, bathroom and outdoor shower, there is a lounge, dining area, fully-stocked bar, coffee station and outdoor seating and dining area that guaranteed to take your breath away. A private lap pool on your spacious private deck comes complete with sunken outdoor lounge looking out onto the famed Sand River. For families, two of the lodge’s suites are joined by a covered walkway to create a family suite.

The lodge’s guest area offers a mixed selection of open, interactive and private places. The viewing deck is an incredible highlight and the library is a fascinating treasury of curated objects and interesting books. Bespoke furniture, lights and unique décor pieces have been created from skilled local artists and striking fabrics have been masterfully hand-painted. A massage and gym area offers guests a space of well-being and tranquillity and a Safari Shop is stocked with beautiful handcrafted items.

Choose from a variety of exciting activities such as twice-daily game drives and evening safaris, interpretive bush and nature walks, photography lessons, birdwatching, star gazing, private and photographic safaris.

Why we love it

PRISTINE LOCATION

The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is one of the most prestigious wildlife sanctuaries in the world, neighbouring the Kruger National Park. It is famed for its leopards and incredible wildlife. The uniqueness of the lodge is its ideal positioning on the Sand River with exclusive access to the riverbed.

SUPURB VIEWS

The lodge has been designed to ensure magnificent river views from all angles. Private decks and al fresco sitting areas are the ideal places to view wildlife using your Swarovski Optik binoculars as herds of elephants congregate in the riverbed and game roam across the landscape.

ICONIC WILDLIFE

In addition to incredible leopard viewing, the famous Big Five, rhino and cheetah, discover a vast variety of plant and animal species that share the land with the Kruger National Park. Encounter a few of the over 500 bird species, 145 animal species, 110 reptile species and 45 fish species.

EXCLUSIVE LAND

Tengile River Lodge has exclusive traversing rights on 10 500 hectares (26 000 acre) of wilderness land, which means our guests can explore the reserve on foot, free from the constraints of roads and vehicles, go on a night drive, or sensitively go off-road enabling you to get closer to wildlife.

Going Beyond the Expected

Go ‘Beyond the Expected’ with a safari theatre experience. Led by our experienced guides, enjoy a morning bush cappuccino rendezvous and evening sundowner stop on your game drives, as well as a complimentary pair of Swarovski Optik binoculars, for your use during your stay with us.
