We were not sure about staying at River Bend Lodge because of the location and price. Are we ever glad we decided to stay there. Without a doubt, if you are going to Addo Elephant National Park this is the best value and the best...More

River Bend Lodge
The rooms and general sitting areas are beautifully decorated, food is wonderful and the entire staff is most helpful and friendly. Elias was our range driver and entertained us with his wealth of knowledge and great sense of humor.
Having done a safari out in Kruger we were a little nervous this might not live up to the same standards.

Yes, as others have mentioned, you can. We did this over 2-3 days and saw some game in the Park itself, though not an enormous amount. Often we saw more game on the road from our accommodation to the entrance of River Bend (a dirt road of a few kilometres if I remember correctly, and one which you take to get to and from the Park), so if you do self drive do look out on this stretch. If you do one of the guided tours from River Bend you leave the accommodation in a different direction, but this is not permitted for self-drive.

Make sure to bring the hats and sunscreen as I am sure we will be blessed with a beautiful sunny summer day. The elephants came and paid us a visit for our Christmas lunch last year, so let's hope that we are part of their plans again this year! We are looking forward to hosting you this Christmas! See you soon
