Meaning “tranquil” in the local Tsonga language, Tengile River Lodge holds an idyllic private position on a bend of the Sand River, with serene river views from every vantage point. Space and flow are the heroes of this inspired lodge design, while the unrivalled game viewing area traverses over 10 500 hectares (26 000 acres) of the celebrated Sabi Sand Reserve. The lodge overlooks the San River from a shady riparian forest—a forest setting that’s unique to the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.

The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is well known for its leopard sightings and you may well spot one of these elusive cats resting after a successful night hunt. Strict vehicle limits at game sightings ensure the exclusivity of the wildlife experiences.

The lodge features nine secluded suites, nestled in the dappled shade of the cool riverine forest, each with soothing river outlooks. Their elevated position creates the illusion that they are lightly floating over the riverbed. Space is taken to an unprecedented level in these guest suites. In addition to a master bedroom, bathroom and outdoor shower, there is a lounge, dining area, and bar, together with a private deck, swimming pool, and outdoor seating and dining area.

The guest area offers a mixed selection of open, interactive, and private spaces. Bespoke pieces of artwork and furniture, together with fabrics and finishes, celebrate the talent of South African artists and designers. The design of this common area ensures a seamless indoor-outdoor flow, with the viewing deck a highlight point. The massage and gym area offers guests yet another haven of well-being and tranquility.

With twice-daily game drives, interpretive bush walks, the river outlooks from all the guest suites, and that of the extensive viewing deck, guests are guaranteed a feast of undiluted and unforgettable wild-magic moments.

Client Testimonials

"Thank you for a superb job of planning and organizing as everything went smoothly. The country of South Africa so captivated me that my husband and I are already planning a return trip next summer. The only thing to rival the bush and animals was the food. The experience of South Africa is like no other and its effect is difficult to express. I can only encourage others to make the venture."

The various places we stayed were outstanding and the uniqueness of each location added to the charm and atmosphere of the trip. The service I received from the guides, drivers and hotel attendants made me feel like royalty. The most impressive part was how smooth everything worked.
