We stayed in the family room. Bed was extremely comfortable and the room was cleaned every day. Beautiful view from our rondavel. 3 meals a day, food was healthy and very well balanced. Lucia the chef made my son soo happy as she made him a hollandaise sauce at his request. Ismael was awesome too offering us his signature cocktails every evening. Mareycke service was always friendly and welcoming
Everything was perfect - staff, lodge manager, exclusivity of the reserve (only 3 chalets), quality of the game. Location is awesome - up on the river bank with exceptional view of nature and animals.
We had a fantastic stay at Emhosheni River Lodge. Manager Mareycke, Ranger Keagan, Chef Lucia and Mama Paulina are the true embodiment of warm South African hospitality. They went out of their way to ensure our comfort, paying special attention to the details that make for an unforgettable experience. The food was tasty and the rooms beautifully decorated and comfortable. Ranger Keagan is very knowledgable about the bush and the game drives were great. Thank you Mareycke and team.
An amazing experience. Excellent staff and very friendly! Everyday safari was very exciting and the rangers were very informative which made it a great experience. We are flashed with this great experience and certainly will come back.
Exquisitely beautiful and luxurious with game viewing from your own private deck overlooking the Elephants river. Expertly guided walks and game drives. Superb meals 3 times a day with a fantastic dinner in a different setting every night. Mareycke is an awesome hostess - extremely friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. What a treat!
My family including 2 teenagers stayed for 8 nights in October 2021. It was indeed a great experience: - small, exclusive lodge with only 3 lodges all with direct view to Elephant river from your private terrace/patio - the manager Mareycke including the staff are very attentive and accommodating - nice clean swimming pool - clean and newly renovated lodge - very nice food - 3 cours dinner every night where the chéf is very good - good game-drives directly from the lodge - we saw elephants, warthogs, monkeys, giraffes, hippos and vultures at the river few meters from our terrasse. Highly recommended.
We had a fantastic experience. The service was on another level and the food was delicious. We also really enjoyed the view on the river. The lodge is very stylish and the host really made us feel-at-home.
What a jewel of a find. Emhosheni is an exclusive lodge with an emphasis on peace and tranquility. Nestled deep within the Parsons Private Nature reserve on the banks of the Olifants river, you truly get away from it all. Excursions are on offer but the river attracts the game and with a bit of patience it all comes to you. The lodge manager Mareycke and her team are on hand to take care of your every need. The meals are wonderful with dinner under the stars most evenings. We stayed for three nights and loved the serenity and quiet of this magical place, it was difficult to leave. This is a trip most certainly worth repeating.
Staying at Emhosheni was like being in a fairytale. You will not find a better service anywhere like the one you get there. Starting from the wonderful manager Mareycke down to all the staff. It was very emotional leaving that place and i cannot wait to be there again.
Our experience at Emhosheni was the most amazing part of a vacation that itself was filled with memorable experiences. We booked the five day, four night safari experience and were glad we did. There is so much wildlife right at Emhosheni, in addition to all we saw on our safari rides, bush walk, and day trip to Krueger NP. The team at Emhosheni made us feel like family. We felt so sad when it was time to leave. Thank you Mareycke, Chef Sibu, Agnes, Jacub, Paul, and the rest of the team. The food was excellent and facilities top notch. There are obviously several lodges near Kruger National Park, but Emhosheni is the best. Hospitality at its finest!
