Narina Lodge A Romantic Escape in the Heart of Kruger

Ah, Narina Lodge – You’ll find no shortage of stunning views and natural wonders here. Just picture waking up to the sounds of the Sabie River flowing gently and the wildlife rustling about in the nearby bush. It’s the kind of place that puts you in touch with nature and each other.


Now, we don’t want to boast, but this is the real deal. Narina Lodge is located on a private concession within Kruger National Park, adjacent to the Sabi Sand private game reserve. That means you’ll be in a prime position in the famous Kruger while still enjoying all the same wildlife as the famous Sabi Sand private game reserve, including the legendary leopards. 

One can’t help but feel that without a river frontage, one is in a position not entirely unlike that of a traveller who has journeyed all the way to Mauritius only to find you are not on the beach”. 

Camp description

But let’s get real for a second – we know what you’re really here for. Romance. And Narina Lodge delivers. The secluded location, the luxurious rooms, the candlelit dinners – it’s all designed to make you feel like the star of your own romantic adventure. 


The lodge has nine spacious and classic suites, each with a private deck and stunning views of the river and surrounding bush. The rooms are decorated in a modern African style, with beautiful local art and natural materials like wood and stone. The bathrooms are particularly special, with huge bathtubs and outdoor showers that allow you to truly connect with nature.

Activities and experiences

And when it comes to activities, there’s no shortage of ways to connect with your loved one. Take a morning or late afternoon game drive, go for a guided bush walk, or just relax and enjoy the stunning scenery from your private plunge pool. Trust me, there’s no better way to fan the flames of love than with a little bit of adventure and a lot of luxury. It’s the kind of place that makes you fall in love all over again – with each other and with the world around you.
