About Zenzele River Lodge

Zenzele River Lodge offers diverse accommodation that caters for guests' needs, from rustic understated comfort to luxury of the finest order. Relax around the boma with a cocktail and absorb the sights and sounds of the Eland River, dine sumptuously inside or outside overlooking the densely wooded valley.

Bask in front of a glowing fire in the lounge during winter, in summer cool down in the delightful plunge pool and at night, retire to one of the five ultra-luxury chalets or two luxury on-suite chalets. Zenzele River Lodge is pure unadulterated luxury, surrounded by the African wilderness. For those wanting to experience unparalleled luxury, privacy and exclusivity, surrender you to the opulence of an ultra-luxury chalet. All five chalets have been strategically positioned to ensure the best possible, unspoiled view of the Eland River and the African bush.

The chalets boast with their own private deck overlooking the Eland River, an open air bushveld shower, as well as a double shower and bath inside. All chalets have DStv, air-conditioning and mini-bars with a private lapa for real privacy. Breathtaking, exquisite beauty awaits you and that's inside your luxury room.

The lodge has eight luxury chalet, two family units and two economy rooms tastefully decorated in warm earthy tones and indigenous woods. The facilities at the lodge include a dining room, pool deck, plunge pool, lounge, ladies bar, and boma for braais, curio shop, gym room, game drives, conference centre and a big screen television equipped with satellite channels.

                                                          Really enjoyed staying here. The staff are warm, the place is just beautiful and peaceful. Perfect for a getaway from the busy city if you looking for time out. I will definitely be back

                                                          All was excellent, chalet, dinner, staff, view over the river and walk through the bush. We used it just as a stopover from NorthWest to Mpumalanga. We will definitely come back and stay for more than just one night

                                                          The place was absolutely lovely and the staff were very friendly. The only thing that I was a bit disappointed with was that there is a spa advertised on the website, only to get there and find out there is no spa at all. It should not be advertised in that case. Really got me excited.
