What an amazing place this is. Liesbeth and Steen are so loving and kind. We loved every moment of our stay. The food was great and very tasty. You could taste that love was cooked into the meals. Thank you so much. The first evening the table was set in Zebra print and the second evening in Cheetah print. So special. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻Bless this lovely house 🏠🙏

Lisbeth and Steen are great hosts. We arrived very late and were exhausted from ourtrip but they they made us feel home and comfortable from the very first second. The food (we had dinner and breakfast) exceeded all our expectations. The rooms are very clean, big and furnished with a very good taste. Lisbeth is a very warm-hearted and smart character. We particularly liked the fact that everything she does is arranged with attention and love to detail. Thanks for our wonderful stay!

We had to visit Hoedspruit for business and stayed at River House. The worst part of the weekend was that we could not spend time at this really beautiful and relaxing place! We loved having breakfast outside with huge bushveld trees, the river and birds all adding to the joy of a new day. Lisbeth is a wonderful host, caring for her guests and cooking with love! We appreciated the attention to detail and would definitely be back!!

Lisbeth and Steen welcomed us with open arms to their atmospheric, thatched home adjacent to the hippo-occupied Olifants River. We arrived in the evening and immediately relaxed surrounded by candles and the sounds of the African bush, while we looked out upon fireflies darting above the dark river below. Lisbeth is an amazing cook, and it was a special treat eating her wonderful meals outside under the stars. Lisbeth also sent me the recipe for her incredible chicken liver pate. Lisbeth and Steen were happy to share stories of their experiences with the various animals who visit their home (including cheeky monkeys, who have led Steen to guard the breakfast offering from their strategically thieving ways). We couldn't have been happier and cannot recommend River House enough.

We had the three most wonderful nights at River House, coming from the bush and going back again for photography tours in Kruger, this was just an paradise, relaxation, still being close to/in the nature and the river this is an oasis. The rooms are of high standard with your own shower and lots of space, not to forget aircon and river view from each room. The treatment from our hosts Lisbeth and Steen was so natural and loving that we absolutely felt like home, amazing food and wine👍🏻 This is absolutely not the last time we are here and it's most recommended!
