Located on a 14000ha private concession within the world famous Addo Elephant National Park, River Bend Lodge is the perfect balance between the Eastern Cape bush and the sheer elegance of fine country life. The region is home to an abundance of wildlife including the Big 5 and over 300 bird species.

The Lodge has eight luxury stand alone suites linked by a meandering path through the lush gardens, each suite offering its guest a distinctly individual, tranquil and private retreat. Each of the spacious suites opens up onto a private patio where guests can soak up the scents and sounds of the bushveld.

A unique wilderness experience, famous for its life changing elephant encounters, River Bend Lodge also enjoys a reputation as an excellent culinary and photographic destination, employing an in-house professional photographer to assist guests.

River Bend Lodge is a true family destination, all children are welcome and special care is taken to ensure that all ages have a truly memorable experience.
