Royal Legend Lodge Accommodation

Nestled along the banks of a seasonal river, The Royal Lodge's ten luxurious chalets all command a magnificent view of the watercourse and its surrounding lush vegetation. Each chalet was built with minimum intrusion into the natural environment, and guests can appreciate an almost unbroken view of the river from the comfort of their beds through the glass doors on two sides of the chalet.
Individually decorated with understated luxury in mind, the extra-length king or twin bedded rooms feature beaded artwork made by skilled South African women.

In room facilities:
Each of the widely separated chalets has its own private deck area, where guests can relax with a book from the lodge's small but select library, or simply bask in the sun, keeping an eye open for the shy creatures that inhabit the river banks.
All the chalets have air conditioning, the windows have protective mosquito gauze and large mosquito nets over the beds.
A bar fridge and a safe are tucked away in reeded cupboards, with a mirrored vanity of beautifully grained indigenous wood counters. The wooden tops are harvested from single slabs of wood, with the curves of the tree providing a sinuous, organic feel.
All rooms have a spacious en suite bathroom, with spa baths and doubled washbasins. A large shower enclosure leads outdoors into a private outdoor shower with a view of river bed.
Large corner windows provide guests with a sense of the outdoors while still inside, and the view from the toilet is unparalleled through a large glass door.
Blinds ensure privacy for the more modest, although the spacing of the chalets makes this unnecessary.
