This isn't a review of the lodge, but I wanted to share my experience with the people who work there. Three days after booking a non-cancellable reservation via Expedia, I found out my wife was pregnant with our second child. Knowing our first child was 6 weeks early and required intensive care after birth, the doctor advised us to cancel our trip to SA. I received a prompt and congratulatory email from the lodge allowing the reservation to be cancelled and saving my family thousands of dollars. They didn't have to do this. The River Lodge could've kept my money and pointed to the non-cancellable clause in my reservation and been 100% right in doing so. If you're looking for a place to safari like I was, this type of hospitality and class should say more about this establishment than any pictures or professional traveler's review. Thanks again to everyone at the lodge. I look forward to meeting you in a few years when we reschedule this trip.
