A really beautiful Lodge in the Addo NP. Fantastic game drives with Lee. You can see all different types of animals, especially elefants. The lodge itself is located in the smaller part of the parc which is quite near natural than the bigger one. Perfect days, thank you for this.

Super Chalets, very good dinner menues, friendly personnel.
Permit to Addo Park in own car with view of lots of elephants, kudus and zebras.
Lions, leopards, rhinos usually not to be seen, no giraffes.
Booking platforms should inform on obligate payment of Addo entrance fee (248 R pP and day) + additional 7.5 % conservation fee on prepaid accommodation, game drives and eating.

Our stay in River Bend Lodge was Awesome. We were very happy with the nice staff en everything in en out the Lodge. Especially the good food and our guide during the drive in Addo wild park. We were so lucky to see a lion with a big Buffalo as his meal.

Team giving you the warmest welcome making your stay great from the beginning. Personalized dinner with individual menu card in front of the fire place makes you travel back in time. Morning safaris well organized without hectic chasing of animals but focusing on the experience. Rooms just great in style with veranda heading into the sunrise - a "wow" every day.

Stayed: October 2016, travelled with family

I can't say enough about this place. The staff, the meals, the service, the game drives... They were all excellent. The best part were the game drives with Darlington as our guide. He was knowledgeable, humorous, very patient and always cheerful.
If you have the opportunity, do not miss a stay at River Bend.
