Peaceful riverside luxury

Situated on the Kruger National Park side – perched on stilits amid a canopy of 100-year old trees, close to the riverbank – Narina Lodge is a haven of serenity in the African bush. Here the abundance of wildlife crosses between reserves to provide a memorable game-viewing experience.

Narina's main lodge consists of a relaxing lounge with fireplaces and a deck for dining under the trees. Raised wooden walkways lead from the lodge to nine treehouse-style suites – each carefully built to benefit from the tranquil river views from its plunge pool, bed and bath. 

After a thrilling day of game viewing, treat yourself to a spa treatment in the wellness centre before unwinding with an icy cocktail as you gaze at the stunning setting sun. To elevate your safari getaway to the next level, book a night in Tinyeleti Treehouse. You'll be taken to this exclusive 'bush bedroom' at dusk, and left to enjoy a gourmet picnic before sleeping under the clear starry sky in a romantic four poster bed. 


  • Unique and luxurious accommodation in the tree canopy
  • Private plunge pools with panoramic views
  • Welcomes families with children of 10 and over
  • Stay the night in Tinyeleti Treehouse and sleep under the African stars

Outstanding in Every Way

Alexandria, Virginia

We stayed 3 nights in Narina Lodge and this was the highlight of our 16-day, 5-country trip in Southern Africa. The accommodations are beautiful, the food fantastic, the service impeccable, and the guides knowledgeable. I think we each gained 5 pounds. Great wildlife, including a cheetah sighting, which was pretty remarkable, considering the chances.

Amazing. Unbelievable location. Wildlife spotting and guide exceeded every expectation on every level and beyond.the guide and trackers went to exceptional lengths to help us see the Big 5 and more. The food was great, plentiful and high quality. The staff were warm, proactive and professional. The room was intimate, romantic, well serviced and lovely. Lots of lovely little extra touches. They created little magical moments. The whole trip was once in a lifetime and represented awesome value for money. Do not hesitate to stay here!
