Mjejane River Lodge is an exclusive lodge situated within the revered Mjejane Game Reserve – a private Big 5 Game Reserve incorporated into the Kruger National Park.

Perched on the banks of the Crocodile River and surrounded by thousands of hectares of raw African wilderness, it is here that the paths of predators and prey cross. It is here that you are assured of a breath taking wildlife experience.

From the first friendly welcome, to your journey of discovery through the African bush with an experienced game ranger at your side, to a starlit dinner around a dancing fire, to the individually decorated luxury bedrooms, Mjejane River Lodge is a truly unforgettable destination.

Mjejane Game Reserve is fully absorbed into the Kruger National Park. Therefore all fences between the Mjejane Reserve and Kruger were removed and the animals move freely. Safari viewing and experience is therefore much better than being in a private reserve. As you are aware the Kruger National Park is the third biggest game reserve in the world and has the widest array of fauna and flora in the world. It is simply unbeatable as far as safari is concerned.

The lodge also has the unique setting overlooking the Crocodile River therefore all rooms have a view and direct access to the lush gardens. It is possible to view animals from the lodge itself. A fabulous Boma dinner (outdoor restaurant under the stars) is served every second or third day to allow guests to experience an authentic African style of dining and a local African dance group perform at a nominal cost to add to the flavour of the evening.


Mjejane Game Reserve is an experience that speaks to the soul and mind. From the moment you breathe the fresh Bushveld air to the time you witness a pride of lions strolling past your home, or an inquisitive elephant herd joining you for a sundowner by the river – it’s a magical sensation. Innovative thinking has created the most exciting private game reserve in Southern Africa.

It embraces a breath taking 11km river frontage and, together with the private bush stands, epitomizes the intimate bush experience showcasing Africa’s Big Five. The reserve includes a private bridge over the Crocodile River, giving home owners the unique privilege of accessing the Kruger’s 7900km road network directly from Mjejane Game Reserve.

As the African bush weaves its magic spell, your senses will awaken as never before and you will soak up a host of new experiences that will feed your soul. You will hear the sounds of the African bush and its deafening silence – a silence that may suddenly be broken by the whooping of hyenas, the reverberating roar of a lion, the loud grunting of hippos, and the majestic trumpeting of elephants or the peaceful call of the fish eagle.

There are 17 rooms which consist of 3 standard double rooms, 7 standard twin rooms and 7 luxury rooms. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, hair dryers, tea & coffee stations, mini bar fridges and private patios overlooking the serene waters of the Crocodile River.

A visit to the Extraordinary Mjejane River Lodge

by David Batzofin

A convoluted but well-signposted road finally delivered us to this building at Mjejane River Lodge. Watched over by an imposing metal statue of a Zulu warrior, this is where we were welcomed and the ubiquitous indemnities completed before we headed off to investigate the rest of the property and our accommodation. Our orientation was conducted by Simon, who must have introduced himself to us at least 4 times during this process…and then we never saw him again for the rest of our stay. The staff that we did interact with at mealtimes and on game drives were very friendly and helpful. I want to single out our tourist guide, Myhunzi Zwane, who made our stay such a wonderful experience.

This is the vista that makes a visit to this lodge ‘worth-the-price-of-admission‘. A view from behind the pool, looking across the Crocodile River and into the Kruger National Park in the near distance. There used to be a bridge from the property directly into the Park, but that was damaged and had not been repaired when we visited. This means that guests who want to go on a game drive in the Kruger needed to get up 30 minutes earlier than usual in order to start their morning activity from the closest park gate. The drive options are either in the Kruger or on the Mjejane property…
