The history of the Indlovu River Lodge dates back to 1992 and the pursuit of one family’s dream to live in the African bush. During their search for the ideal piece of land, , the Venter family came across a plot next to the Kuvjename River and immediately fell in love with it. Following their decision to leave their city lives behind, the family decided to share their little piece of paradise with the world. In 2005, the gates of the river lodge opened up, allowing guests from near and far to experience the magic of the reserve and all it has to offer!
The comfortable, luxurious chalets and suites are named after the celebrated “Great Tusker” elephants of the Kruger Park: Shingwedzi, Shawu, Kambaku and Ndlulamithi.
Formerly the land and the surrounding area were used for cattle farming, but in 1998 the seven landowners decided to drop their fences and create a Big 5 conservancy. Gradually wild animals were re-introduced, which has led to the exciting game viewing experienced by guests today.
