Awesome location, house fully equiped with much more than is expected , owners go out of their way to ensure that your stay is one to remember. Crisp white linen on the beds, huge kitchen, lovely lounge area for relaxing late at night having spent the evening sitting outside. Wonderful braai area. Loved the pool and clear river where we spent 90% of our day. Have already booked to go back. AN ABSOLUTE GEM. Words cannot actually explain how beautiful it is here.

Verified reviewvery good

We had a really great time at Rivers Own. What an exceptional setting for the lodge. Mountains, water and greenery, what more can you want on a break from city life. We loved it there, the peace and quiet, waking to the sound of birdsong, the gurgling river and the wind whistling through the trees made for a remarkable three days. It was probably the most relaxing and tranquil time I've had in a very long. None of us missed the TV,laptops were not even opened and phones were used to the minimum. And that in itself says something about the place. Also, the manager(?) Hassan was a great help.Always willing to help with a smile and friendly too.
