Expert Review

Leopard sightings are common at this superlative lodge on the banks of the Sand River on the western edge of Kruger National park, where a perennial flow of water and groves of acacia and marula trees attracts a wealth of wildlife.  Luxury is the word of choice here, where 12 spacious suites, including two double family suites, feature their own private game-viewing deck with heated plunge pool, spacious bathroom, double-sided fireplace, indoor/outdoor showers, and vast, floor-to-ceiling savannah views. The dramatic African terrain has been infused into the interior design, in a palette of stonework; rich, chocolate brown leather; textured fabrics; and hand-felled wood furnishings. After an awe-inspiring day of safari in the African bush, bird watching (over 400 species can be found here), or a rejuvenating mud wrap at the spa, guests can enjoy a superb fusion of Asian, pan-African, and modern European cuisine beneath the lantern-lit trees at twilight or in the stonewalled, candlelit dining room. Three meals per day are included in room rates, as are all wine and spirits (except champagne), and guided safaris.
