The staff and owner were very helpful and great company. The food was generous and tasty. The game walk and game drives were very productive and informative. It’s a must do! Saw lions and wild dogs while I was there as well as good sightings of plains game. Bird life is really good as well… Especially around camp. Special mentions to Drikus & Agnes. Great game drives and many thanks for showing me around Parsons. Thanks for being such a great hosts.

Rio Dos Elefantes River Camp was and is beyond expectations. Everything was outstanding. Firstly, the location where you can see herds of elephants in the river or close to your accommodation, enjoy its remoteness, genuine nature and all its sounds. The drive from the main road to the camp is equal to a safari (especially if you get lost 🙂 ). Each day we saw many different animals around. The camp also offered excellent and stylish accommodation, delicious and plentiful food. And most importantly, our gratitude to Agnes, the owner of this property. You are the spirit of Rio Dos Elefantes and your presence was much appreciated. Rio Dos Elefantes River Camp overall was the most impressive out of three areas/lodges in SA our group stayed during this 2-week trip. It was a never to forget experience in itself.

Agnes has been an exceptional host for us! We spent three nights and enjoyed every second of it. Our highlights were the delicious homemade meals, the sight of hippos in the river, the game drive, the bushwalk and the pleasant company of our hosts.

It was totally beautiful in its entirety, so peaceful and watching the Elephant community was just amazing. Agnes who runs this beautiful Lodge couldn’t do enough for us. The accommodation was so spacious and clean. We can’t wait to return.
