You made us love Africa!

Dear Peter & staff,

You made us love Africa more than we already did before we stayed here for the first time. This year we returned and felt like home immediately. We will come back for sure, so no goodbye. Thank you for the great experience again.

First row seat in Paradise!

Dear Kruger Riverside Team

You got a first row seat in Paradise! Thank you so much for introducing us to your supreme place. Kudus, Zebras, mongooses, vervet monkeys while dinning was a transforming experience. All this is complimented by a friendly team ( Westline, Peter and all the other staff members). Everything was perfect, highly recommended. All the best!

Lovely stay!

Thank you for your incredible hospitality, care and all the lovely chats. We slept like babies, ate too much and  enjoyed all the "houseguests" at breakfast and dinner. Definitely a place to recommend.

Unbelievable experience

It was our first stay in SA - in Africa! You have made it an unbelievable experience: very, very friendly staff Rachel, Lido, Peter, Westline and all the other staff. Especially the warm welcome and support in everything from Westline. We will never forget the animals in front of the lodge and the cosy stay. Thank you so much! Surely we will come back.

Felt like Kings & Queens

We felt like king & queens, waking up in a very friendly and heartful estate with a lot of smiling faces. We would like to take a photo of this impression and keep it in our hearts.

We loved our stay here at Kruger Riverside lodge. We got a very warm welcome and we felt like home. The staff were able to read our wishes from our lips. The breakfast and dinner was perfect.
