Indlovu River Lodge

Set on the banks of the Kuvjenami river, with the imposing Drakensberg Mountains as a backdrop, Indlovu offers just four separate villas, ensuring an intimate safari experience. Each villa benefits from its own pool and boma, guaranteeing exclusivity and privacy, whilst the surrounding bushveld offers abundant bird life and exceptional big game viewing, including regular leopard sightings.
