Perched right on the park boundary, this cracking gay-friendly lodge is a great place to relax pre or post Kruger, perhaps with views of wallowing hippos from the thatched riverside terrace. The 12 cool rooms have their own balconies, from which you can see all the way into the park.

Friendly owner Johan 'Daff' Daffue built and decorated the idiosyncratic, antique-packed lodge, with its bikes hanging from the dining-room ceiling and a cosy bar and lounge.

Quick description via booking.com

Bordering Kruger National Park, this award-winning country-style lodge is situated in the small town of Malelane and is a great base from which to discover the Bushveld. Wake up to the sounds of native birds. At River House Lodge you can watch hippos and crocodiles in their natural habitat while relaxing in the pool or sunbathing on the large thatched deck. Alternatively, you can marvel at views of the river and national park from the comfort of your private balcony. Spend the day enjoying drives through Kruger National Park or visiting Swaziland. The attentive staff is happy to arrange various fun and adventurous activities for you. For special occasions, the original pump house has been converted into a stunning wedding or party location. River House Lodge is a gay-friendly property. It has an outdoor swimming pool and provides free on-site private parking.
