The drive from the gate to the Lodge was a treat in itself for the variety of animals we encountered along the way; distinguished and sophisticated - yet relaxed, with great activities for kids if you’re a travelling family.

ABOUT RiverBend Lodge

Set on a 14 000-hectare private concession within the malaria-free Addo Elephant National Park, River Bend is family friendly and a mere 45-minute drive from Port Elizabeth. Home to the Big Five, River Bend is renowned for its unique viewing opportunities of elephants and includes a checklist of over 300 birds.

The eight stand-alone and individually decorated spacious suites have private patios which open onto the bushveld and afford guests the impression that they are the only ones in this unique Eastern Cape wilderness. The lodge’s Honeymoon Suite offers newlyweds the perfect romantic and private retreat with its own private veranda, secluded plunge pool and garden. River Bend prides itself on its culinary excellence and an award-winning wine list that accompanies delicious meals prepared in a classic French style with a modern contemporary twist. Individual and personalised game drives are led by enthusiastic and experienced guides, who will ensure you have a truly memorable experience.

River Bend Lodge also enjoys a reputation as a photographic destination and employs an in-house professional photographer to assist guests. For the kids there are mobile playrooms, mini-ranger courses and a selection of children’s DVDs for kids to choose from and which can be viewed in the Day Room.
