Riverbend Lodge
is located in the Addo area of the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

Addo National Park is the third largest wildlife reserve in the country, unusually encompassing mountain, savanna and coastal dune habitats. The area is renowned for elephants and represents one of the lowest cost ways to combine safari with Cape Town.

Set in a 140 square kilometre private concession area of the reserve, Riverbend Lodge is a high-end facility which manages to deliver a reasonable quality of safari experience.

The lodge is centred on a colonial style building containing the lounge and dining areas, leading out to a modest swimming pool. There is also a small spa.

Guest accommodation is in eight very comfortable detached suites.

Activities are centred on daytime vehicle safari, largely in private parts of the reserve, with a wide range of wildlife present, including elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards and buffaloes.

The main potential downsides at Riverbend Lodge are rather urban design and lack of safari atmopshere, the encircling electric fence, the less wild feel of the reserve, relatively low predator sightings, the presence of self-drive vehicles and considerable traffic issues in the public access areas.
