Is it worth spending a few nights at the river lodge then a few nights at safari lodge or will we be traversing over the same ground?

Yes, you’ll be traversing the same land but staying fewer than 3 nights at either will feel rushed. If in budget and it meets your needs, River has some amenities that Safari doesn’t have. Both are very nice but I’d choose 1

This could be a nice 2-night stay to pair with Kambaku River Sands, but do nThambo fiirst - https://www.nthambo.com/

Here's a video I shot of it - and I called it a reverse view since I started in the bathroom...

nThambo is so close to Kambaku (on the other side of the road) that I believe nThambo might just drive you over.. I would ask them about that. I should add that they do not do their game drives in the same area.
