&Beyond in 2018
Luxury experiential company &Beyond is once again investing in the constant improvement and extension of its lodge network in 2018.
Situated in the prestigious Sabi Sand Game Reserve, &Beyond Tengile River Lodge is a brand new property that will share the same traversing rights as the perennial favorite, &Beyond Kirkman’s Kamp. Elegant interiors by Anatomy Design will call to mind the same authentic feel, translated into a more modern fashion. Warm and contemporary, the lodge will intersperse quiet, intimate spaces with pockets of open space designed for group gatherings.

Following the curve of the river bank, each area in the lodge will offer magnificent river views. Raised above ground level, the spacious suites will offer sunken lounges, elegant bedrooms and bathrooms that open out onto the forest, creating private spaces in the open air.
Cleverly designed living areas can be converted to cater for children’s sleeping arrangements at night. A beautiful spa and gym area offer a haven of tranquility where guests can spend the entire day relaxing in between game drives.
