TAAIBOS RIVER LODGE is the ideal home-from-home indulgence in the heart of Africa's wildlife. It offers a matchless experience by subtly blending stunning natural beauty with sophisticated, superior, 5-star luxury

Swimming pools

Spend an afternoon around either the intimate heated plunge pool or the main pool with family, friends or colleagues.

Steam Room

A quick visit to the steam room is the perfect way to relax after a morning game drive.

Lounge and deck

Winter evenings can be spent in the formal lounge with a large fireplace, or else watch a sunset from the adjoining, spacious wooden deck; relishing the sounds of the African bush whilst enjoying your favourite cocktail.


The boma, an outdoor enclosure for used for dining, is perfect for enjoying your meal around a fire under a canopy of stars.

Audio-visual Entertainment

For those rainy days and important sporting events, we offer two large flat-screen televisions in the main living area with access to a comprehensive high-definition satellite TV bouquet. A large selection of movies and documentaries can be streamed in high definition. A music distribution system with more than 2,000 tracks is available, or guests can connect their own iPod players to our system.


For the enthusiastic, we have a table for these.


A book library with a selection of games. 

Climate Control

All glass in the lodge is double glazed, facilitating excellent climate control. All bathrooms have under-floor heating and all bedrooms are air-conditioned.

Insect screens

Insect screens can slide over opening doors and windows, allowing guests to remain in close contact with the wilderness.


We have a satellite phone and internet facilities, available on a wireless network limited to certain areas of the lodge. There is no cell phone signal (and we hope to keep it that way!)


The lodge is equipped with a helipad; and for fixed-wing aircraft, two airstrips are available on the Reserve. It is about a 1-hour flight from Grand Central/Lanseria/ORT.


The dining room converts into a conference room with a large-screen television, white board and flip chart. We can facilitate up to 20 people in a boardroom configuration
