We stopped here for Xmas 2020, what a treat, tranquility at its best, clean comfy beds, Aircon, Wifi, everything! 100% recommend Agnes and Rio dos Elefantes. We had several options on catering, salads to go with our own meals or they cooked for us. Everyone in our 11 person party had a great time

You will not get much better locations. The lodge is built amongst magnificent old trees right against the river and the lodge itself and the surrounding bush bustles with all forms of life-great and small. From a magnitude of bird species, including a nesting vulture, to hippo's frolicking in the river right in front of the lodge and herds of elephant in the distance. Clear signs that the Ellies visit this area regularly(as indicated in the name), even on the lawns right in front of the lodge where you will be able to view them from the safety of your own deck in front of your very spacious unit. Great place for an authentic, non-commercialized bush experience. All the basics are there to have a very comfortable stay including aircon, swimming pool and very comfortable beds, but the camp still has a unfussed, non commercial bush camp feel. All this at very reasonable prices. Really enjoyed our stay as a family.

WOW wow wow is all I can say ...I had an amazing time at Rio Dos Elephants the view was amazing breath taking if you are a fan of the outdoors life. The welcome we received from Agness and Drikus was amazing they really went the extra mile for us with there kindness. My elders son cannot stop talking about you Drikus for an awesome game drive you have show him he keeps asking me when are we coming back .I loved the food the breakfast and the dinner is a must to have include if you staying over. I don't have any complaints to be honest as everything was on point for me and my family...Thank you so much for making our stay memorable and may God continue blessing you guys.

If anyone asks if I have ever been to paradise, I can guarantee that it will! This place is really incredible. Of all the places in the world where we've been, this is the most perfect. Not only for the place, for the view, for the river ... but also for all who work and do everything so that our day is perfect, that the food is sensational and that at bedtime, we have a peaceful and adventurous night for listen to the animals that live there. If you ask me where I would like to live, it would certainly be in this place, with these people and without changing anything. Thank you for having a piece of paradise available to the rest of the world. We love each of you. Thank you for food, breakfast, conversation, laughter, bonfires, beers, wines and of course, thank you for having Scarlet as a pet and letting her sleep in my room. We love you!
