The game viewing continues all day, whether on a game drive or from the comfort of the Lodge’s shady viewing deck. The full flavours of lunch acquire an extra edge on our open air dining deck, with the distant splashing of animals coming down to drink at the water’s edge as a gentle reminder of Africa.

At Exeter River Lodge, it is our passion to share our knowledge and understanding of the bush and its inhabitants with our guests. Our highly trained rangers and trackers will do their very utmost to delight our guests with a choice of the following activities: Twice daily game drives – early morning and late afternoon / evening game drives in an open 4×4 safari vehicle traverse an area of 10 000 hectares (25 000 acres). Track the Big Five, as well as a rich variety of other game, in the company of an armed ranger and Shangaan tracker. Strict vehicle limits at animal sightings ensure the exclusivity of your wildlife experience and careful off-road driving positions you for the best photo opportunities. Rangers are constantly in touch with each other to help keep track of game and the sensitive approach methods used mean that the wildlife has become accustomed to the presence of vehicles. Interpretive bush walks – in between game drives, take a leisurely walk within easy reach of your lodge and experience the sights, smells and sounds of the African bush. An armed ranger will accompany you and will share his vast knowledge of the local fauna and flora.
