Look-out point

For our birders we have custom-built an elevated timber look-out point at the far corner of the lodge’s premises. This is an ideal place to enjoy a quiet late afternoon overlooking the water hole and to look out for the numerous bird species coming in for a drink or – should you be so fortunate– spot a larger creature passing by.


Indlovu River Lodge is the next inspirational retreat for your conference, meeting or workshop away from the distractions of city life. Our African themed meeting room is equipped with flipchart, flatscreen TV for projection of presentations and Wifi access. In addition we supply bottled water and mints, pads and pens.

We cater for all meals and coffee breaks which may be enjoyed on the large timber deck shaded by majestic Jackalberry trees. End a hard day’s work with a late afternoon game drive followed by refreshments and dinner under the stars at the lodge. We offer tailor made packages and cater for your specific needs in terms of accommodation, equipment, catering and activities. Please contact us for an offer.



Allow us to create the perfect setting for the most memorable day in your life! At Indlovu River Lodge we host small, intimate bush weddings against the beautiful backdrop of the Kuvjename River and the surrounding bushveld.

We will arrange for a minister to wed you under the gazebo on the river’s banks accompanied by eco-friendly confetti, flowers for bride and groom, sparkling wine to toast with, a wedding cake made with love and a surprise in your honeymoon suite.. Should you wish so, we will assist with organizing a hairdresser and photographer at extra cost.

After the ceremony we will whisk the newlyweds off onto a game drive with incredible photo opportunities for those once in a lifetime wedding pictures. Rest assured that we will take care of every detail to make your wedding a day of everlasting memories. Please contact us for a quote.
