Oori River Lodge overlooks a scenic stretch of the Crocodile River Valley. The extensive gardens blend into indigenous riverine bush with lawns sweeping to the river’s edge.
The lodge is in the heart of the Oori Nature Reserve and is fully game fenced. Leisurely walks can be taken in the extensive gardens and in the bushveld environment of the reserve itself. A wide range of bird life can be observed and there is always the chance of spotting the reserve’s varied game, which includes kudu, impala, blesbok, wildebeest and zebra as well as other small mammals and reptiles.
Oori River Lodge is just 5 km off the R512, the road that leads to Hartebeestpoort and it is close to the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the museum in the Cradle of Humankind. The Sterkfontein Caves and The Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve are also in the vicinity.
The Lodge is only half an hour from the hustle and bustle of Monte Casino and Fourways, one of Gauteng’s premier shopping centres. Lanseria Airport is a mere 15 minutes’ drive away. There are some very good restaurants in the area.
Champagne backpack picnics are available for overnight guests. They contain a selection of delicacies and a bottle of bubbly. Oori River Lodge is the perfect place to unwind and relax in tranquil and secluded surroundings.
