We visited Indlovu River Lodge from 1-7 July 2011 and stayed in Shawu. The best seven days in a long time! We had amazing game sightings...all of the BIG FIVE were spotted within the first three days of our stay. Then there were the most amazing birds, birds only to beset at Indlovu River Lodge; ...trees, trees and more trees standing tall for a hundred years and more!! Our evenings were spend around a "real" bushfire in our private boma. Here precious family time was spend and we could reflect on the day that past...a day closer to our net visit. "we will be back"

The time that our family spent at Indlovu River Lodge has been unforgettable! They offer an opportunity to experience the african bush in a way that few lodges can - especially at such an affordable rate. The lodge itself offers self - catering luxury accommodation and the chance to view the game from your stoop overlooking the riverbed or the lookout on the grounds - this year we saw Rhino, giraffe, elephant, genet, civet, bush babies and a wide variety of buck without even leaving our stoop! The game drives offer a unique opportunity to see the big five "up close and personal". The game rangers Jonty and John, are very well qualified to offer information about plants, insects, birds and animals that make it a unique experience. This year we were privileged to experience the lions eating a blue wildebeest, the herd of elephants moving right past us and the two cheetah brothers - all within meters from where we were situated. Another highlight was the sundowner stop at Croc River in the evening, with an unbelievable view of the hippos and crocs. Quiet evenings spent visiting next to the fire enjoying a typical South African braaivleis and glass of wine, followed by smores for desert, make for the ideal end to a perfect day. Thanks to Dawn and her staff for their unrivaled service and hospitality - we will be back!

Wir kommen jährlich zweimal nach Indlovu (inzwischen mehr als 10 X) und genieBen die zauberhafte Lodge mit dem auBergewohnlich freundlichen Personal. Im landschaftlich sehr schonen Reserve kann man regelmäßig Löwen, Elefanten, Nashörner und diverses Weiderind, sowie recht zahme Geparde beobachten. Büffel (Tb-frei) sind in einem besonderen Gehege untergebracht) Der Zur Zeit tätige Ranger (Jonty) und der Tracker (John) sind noch sehr engagiert, allerdings noch in der Lernphase Bei uns steht die Tierbeobachtung (Big Five) inzwischen jedoch nicht mehr im Vordergrund. Zum Bespiel lassen sich Vogel exzellent - sogar auf dem Gelände der Lodge selbst - beobachten. Wir werden im Oktober wieder fur 1 Woche nach Indlovu gehen.
