Riverbend Lodge
is located in the Addo area of the Sunshine Coast West region in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

+ large private concession
+ restored colonial farmhouse
+ alluring landscapes
+ important conservation project
+ high quality lodge
+ private vehicles
+ good swimming pool
+ access to Addo National Park
+ child friendly
+ spa facilities

Situated in a 140 square kilometre private concession area across the main road to the north of the main game-viewing area of the reserve, this high-end lodge is able to offer a far higher level of safari experience than the over-busy self-drive areas. The lodge is centred on a colonial style building containing the lounge and dining areas, leading out to a modest pool. Guest accommodation is in eight detached suites.

Activities are centred around vehicle safari, largely in the private parts of the reserve, with elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards and buffaloes all present.

- fenced reserve
- long bumpy arrival road
- self drivers allowed access by car
- high visitor volume in areas of the park
- relatively low predator sightings

Riverbend Lodge is a high quality facility, renowned for its friendly and efficient staff, something which is reflected in the glowing guest reviews. It is also relatively good value for a private reserve lodge. However you should not expect a real sense of wilderness in this Addo area. We are particularly disappointed that guests are permitted to drive their saloon vehicles to the lodge rather than leave them at the gate.
