I visited this establishment many years ago - was quite surprised on the quality of the chalets. That is really nice apart from the fence so close to the front porch area. But the Lodge itself - what a disappointment. I know there has been drought, but really - maintenance has got nothing to do with that. The cushions for... More

This lodge is located just outside the Kruger National Park and is privately owned. Our room was clean and nice and looked out over the Crocodile River, which is a lovely view. From in front of our room, we immediately saw elephant, crocodile and impala, which for first time visitors was amazing. The property itself is fairly modern, and there... More

Went to the River Lodge for the second time, this time with my cousin from Scotland, and I can highly promote them, as the staff are happy to please the guests, food was good and the location and view of the river is awesome. We saw loads of animals drinking on the verandah! Awesome!

Having spent a week at Mjejane we had occasion to dine at the River lodge on two occasions. The set menus had good variety do food was well prepared. Friendly staff provide good service. Our group of 6 enjoyed the evening. I will dine here again.

It's so surprising to read all of the glowing reviews about Mjejane River Lodge, I can only assume they were written by people who haven't stayed at any other private game reserves in South Africa. The staff, while nice, is genuinely inexperienced and has no idea how to take care of guests. The rooms seem more like a Marriott than... More

Stayed at MRL over 2 nights (31 Aug -1 Sept) and it was quite enjoyable. Good service and helpful staff. Rooms were big and comfortable, we were lucky to get the one with the best view overlooking the pool. The icing on the cake was the pleasant dinner in the courtyard. Recommended
