Bundox River Lodge

Bundox River Lodge is ideally located on the banks of the burgeoning Olifants River in the northern reaches of the Balule Nature Reserve. Bundox sets a new standard of luxury with its glamorous river facing Meru style tents, each built on raised wooden platforms overlooking the bend in the river below.

Bundox River Lodge’s pride of place on the water’s edge combined with its luxury canvas suites, exudes that iconic Okavango Delta camp atmosphere, making it unique to the Kruger. In keeping with the understated sophistication of the Bundox brand, this camp marries light wood with classic canvas to create a lodge in harmony with its environment. Only the finest linen, textiles and fixtures are used throughout.

The 5 tented suites are spacious and designed perfectly to let in streams of natural light. The beautifully appointed tents each have en-suite bathrooms with outdoor showers, private viewing decks, King size beds and standing fans. Interiors are plush and modern, with bushveld hues and accents of colour scattered throughout. Expect oversized scatters, explorer style furniture and curated pieces designed to reflect the bushveld beyond.

A sprawling relaxation area elevated above the flowing waters offers a lounge area with oversized couches, dining and bar area, and swimming pool with deck. The boma area and small viewing decks also provide a perfect place to connect.
