These million-star accommodations – Chalkley and Kingston (Sabi Sand), Tinyeleti (Kruger Park) – are the ultimate bush bedrooms where romantics, adventurers and solitude seekers alike can discover the magic of an African night in the open. Guests arrive at sunset to a picnic dinner, spend the dusk hours watching animals wander past (at a safe distance), and fall asleep counting shooting stars. Guests can rest assured that a field guide is always on call via radio should they feel they need assistance.
On the Sabi Sand side, the contemporary-style lodge is built of concrete, timber, glass and steel to meld into the landscape. Its eight single-bedroom Villas and one double-bedroom family Fish Eagle Villa offer unparalleled luxury in peaceful refuge. Each has a private lounge, plunge pool and viewing deck, while Fish Eagle Villa also incorporates a private spa and gym.
On the Sabi Sand side, the lodge has a feel of lived-in luxury and guests are invited to make themselves at home. It comprises 8 Luxury Rooms, 6 Superior Luxury Rooms, and 4 private River Suites further away from the main lodge and with their own private plunge pools. Two shared pools are located at each end of the lodge.
On the Kruger Park side, the lodge is a contemporary take on the colonial-style homestead. It captures the romance of the pioneer days, but offers considerable more luxury in its bold and sophisticated spaces. Its nine Suites and self-contained two-bedroom Hi’Nkweni Villa occupy private spots along the riverbank. Each has a deck and pool, in addition to the main lodge.
On the Kruger Park side, the lodge, perched on stilts amongst a canopy of 100-year-old trees, reflects its surrounds with organic chic décor, creating an air of relaxation. The main lodge connects via raised wooden walkways to 9 separate Suites, each built to take advantage of the serene river views from its pool, deck, as well as bed and bath.
