River Hill Lodge is just what is needed when you need a break away.

The lodge is beautifully laid out, so tranquil with beautiful birdlife. The general manager, Gavin, is amazing to have as he will assist with making your stay a memorable one. Ross is excellent at what he does and ensured that we catch those Tigers. Our stay was a much-needed one and would love to go back over and over again.

Awesome place, amazing views, friendly staff and yummy food.

Clean, neat chalet with everything we needed. The fact that there was both a bath and shower was great. Loved the view of the river from the bar area, and swimming pool. The food in their restaurant was brilliant.

Die oord is goed geleë om die Wildtuin te besoek. Die gasheer was uitstekend.

Die oord se fasiliteite is voldoende. Hulle is besig met opgraderings en dit sal dus nog beter word.

Reg langs die besige treinspoor na Mosambiek. Baie raserig en beslis nie waarde vir geld nie.

Eienaar het ons dadelik vertel dat hy alles doen omdat hy bankrot gespeel het en verkoop het a.g.v. Covid. Chalets is heel oulik, maar beslis nie die geld werd nie. Plek was redelik skoon en eienaar was heel vriendelik en gewillig. Die swembad het 'n mooi uitsig op die gholfbaan maar die oord en veral ons chalet is reg teen die besige treinspoor na Mosambiek wat minstens uurliks daar verbykom 24 uur per dag met 'n geweldige geraas waarvan daar geen melding gemaak word wanneer jy bespreek nie.

Right next to the busy train track to Mozambique. Very noisy and definitely not value for money.

Owner immediately told us that he is doing everything because he was bankrupt and sold due to Covid. Chalets are very cute, but definitely not worth the money. Place was quite clean and owner was very friendly and willing. The pool has a nice view of the golf course but the resort and especially our chalet is right against the busy train track to Mozambique which passes by at least hourly 24 hours a day with a tremendous noise which is not mentioned when you book.

Hi Emil
I'm sorry that you had a problem with your stay. Very clearly on the website we do warn guests about the train. I was told not to do it but, I always believe it best to be open and not hide anything. Again my apologies.
Kind regards
Richard

Dankie Mark. Was baie lekker.

Mark het uit sy pad gegaan om ons verblyf so lekker as moontlik te maak. Plek is netjies en skoon. Net baie warm die tyd van jaar. Aircon het ons lewe gered. Lekker uitsig oor die rivier vanaf die dek. Lekker plekkie om te oornag. Huisies tussen die bosse, wat dit lekker privaat maak. Verbygaande treine kan steurend wees, maar met aircon aan, help dit baie.

Thanks Mark. Was very nice.

Mark went out of his way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Place is neat and clean. Just very hot this time of year. Aircon saved our life. Nice view of the river from the deck. Nice place to spend the night. Cottages in the woods, which makes it nice and private. Passing trains can be distracting, but with aircon on, it helps a lot.

Sunset on the Crocodile river.

We loved our stay at River Hill Lodge. Richard is a most attentive host and kept our glasses filled while we watched the sun set over the river.

Fantasties, rustig langs die swembad met besondere uitsig oor die rivier en golfbaan.

Goeie ligging om in te gaan na die Krugerpark, baie die Krodilebrug hek. Geriewe is skoon en het alles wat ons benodig het.

Ek wens kon daar bly! Daar was die mooiste natuurskoon met die vriendelikste diens. Ek sal beslis weer daar gaan kuier.

Sekerlik een van die beste plekke om te oornag voor jy oor die grens moet gaan, veral as jy van ver af reis. Bespreek maar vir meer as een nag, mens wil daar kuier.

I wish I could stay there! There was the most beautiful scenery with the friendliest service. I will definitely visit there again.

Definitely one of the best places to spend the night before you have to cross the border, especially if you are traveling from far away. Book for more than one night, you want to visit there.
