Tengile River Lodge is a brand new luxury safari lodge within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.  The lodge is situated on a bend of the Sand River providing all living and accommodation areas with magnificent river views.  Modern simplicity combined with eco-chic interiors accent the lodges light carbon footprint.

Using durable and environmentally friendly materials, the lodge utilises natural light and solar power to keep sustainability at its core, yet submerges the guest into a tranquil paradise of luxury.

The nine elegantly modern suites are raised above ground level to give a floating impression over the riverbed. Cleverly designed living areas can be converted into comfortable sleeping spaces for children, and private decks feature sunken outdoor lounges and lap pools, creating exclusive retreats in the open air.

A beautiful massage and gym area offer a haven of tranquillity where guests can spend the entire day relaxing in between game drives.

Sabi Sands delivers some of the finest Big 5 safari experiences in Africa and is renowned for its exceptional leopard sightings.

The reserve guarantees an exclusive game viewing experience by implementing strict vehicle limits.  A dedicated ranger and tracker team accompany drives going out of their way to track your favourite animals. Refreshments are provided at a scenic spot during your drive.

To fully absorb Africa’s wild, where each sound, scent and bent blade of grass has a meaning, embark on a walking animal tracking adventure accompanied by an armed specialist ranger and tracker team.

Expert guides will use their extensive experience in wildlife, birding and landscape photography to help you get the shot of a lifetime on a photographic safari.  Providing advice on shutter speed, lenses, filters, angles, lighting and animal behaviour, our guides are passionate about making sure you capture perfect memories of your luxury African safari.

So much adventure needs to be balanced out with a bit of pampering.  The on-site spa offers a variety of massages, African handprint and footprint rituals and Quiet Mind Journey massage treatments.

 Best of all, Tengile River Lodge did not forget the junior rangers! WildChild Beauties and Buddies get to soak their tired little feet in Healing Earth’s Lavender and Jasmine bubble bath and then enjoy a treatment of their own.  Treatments are finished with an African Tribal Face Paint and budding little rangers will then be ready to set off on their next adventure in the African bush.
