I had been traveling around SA for about a month when I got to the Krueger area. My plan was to in from the south and work my way north. Got on expedia and found this place. Turns out it is surrounded by a private game reserve, you need to enter a gate before you get to the compound. Also, it includes dinner which expedia did not mention. Very good room and public areas. Great staff. Look at their website not the expedia shortened version. Highly recommend.

We were blown away by the safari adventure, food, scenery and friendly knowledgeable staff at the River Lodge @ Thornybush. We saw most of the big 5 in our first game drive! This cosy and personal lodge will not disappoint
"Extremely Pleased & Satisfied. What an Experience!"
When you go to see nature, you do not need the same hotel you stay in when you go for a luxury visit to New York City or Paris. You need clean, pleasant and friendly staff; you need comfort, and people saying “Madam, is there anything else I can do to make your trip better?” We knew about Hippo Pools Resort from the internet and our colleagues. We wanted a two night stay that will not cost us an arm and a leg but still be safe, clean, and with GOOD food. All of these were there and much more. The manager at the time, who is also the owner, is very pleasant and accommodating; he ensured that we were satisfied with the rooms. When WE, in the last minute and against all wisdom, asked for a ride on the quads, there were no guides because we did not make a reservation, Ryan was willing to guide us himself and was patient with me who had her first ride at that time. If you are a practical tourist looking for a great value, make this your choice. A snobbish tourist might want to go elsewhere, rather than the natural reserves in and around Kruger Park. And by the way, they provide transport service to go to the near-by gates at 4 a.m. for the morning drive. And, forgot to say, very quiet and the view of the stars in the sky was breathtaking.
The children enjoyed a swim in the very clean swimming pool.
