If you’re keen to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy some well-deserved rest and relaxation, Blyde River Wilderness Lodge is the place to go. The lodge is situated along the famous Panoramic Route of Blyde River Canyon near Hoedspruit and is less than an hour’s drive from the Kruger National Park (Orpen Gate). Set on the banks of the tranquil Blyde River, this thatched lodge is every nature lover’s dream. A blend of contemporary, African decor complements the beauty of the lodge’s garden, which rests under the shade of majestic Jackelberry and Fig trees. Each beautifully appointed room has an en-suite bathroom, tea tray and mini bar. Scrumptious breakfasts are included and 3-course candlelight dinners under the stars are an optional extra. On chilly nights, guests can also enjoy the mesmerizing flames and warmth of a wood fire in our traditional African boma.

We had a very pleasant stay at Blyde River Wilderness Lodge (it was our second stay). The river and its tall trees attract plenty of birds and other animals. It is so nice to wake up to the sounds of nature! As birders, we particularly loved to see African Finfoots and Half-collared Kingfishers. The staff are very nice and friendly. We enjoyed the meals a lot. Congratulations to the cook! Breakfast offers anything one might wish. We enjoyed the fresh fruit salad a lot. Walking around the lodge is enjoyable, too! And the rock pool is great! We hope to be able to stay there next time we visit the area!

Our booking was for 10 adults (5 Couples). We all enjoyed our stay. Thanks to Cythia who made our stay comfortamble and met our desired expectations. Will definetly recommend it to anyone and will difinetly be going back again. We enjoyed the nature view, river flowing as well as the assistants there. Even our cars got washed in the morning after the rain. Wow, we never got our our cars washed anywhere before in all the previous accommodation facilities we visited before. Thank you very much):

Unfortunately we only stayed one night at the lodge but we enjoyed every minute of it. The place is beautiful, quit, clean and the best part is you are in the middle of the wilderness and you’ll see animals everywhere. We had a wonderful vegetarian dinner at the terrace and were really happy to have come to this place. Definitely coming back soon!

Had a lovely (too short) 2 night stay here. Stayed at Kimba House which was a stunning, peaceful, well equipped cottage with fabulous facilities. Ate at the restaurant, and enjoyed delicious meals and a good wine list. Beautiful setting right on the banks of the Blyde river with great birdlife and a tranquil setting. Really regretted not being able to stay for longer and hope to be back. Helpful and friendly staff help made for an outstanding stay.
