1995 Springbok and Rugby World Cup winner, Hennie le Roux is the private owner of this rich landscape which abounds in fauna and flora.

Crown River Safari and Wildlife Reserve is home to the Crown Eagle, Fish Eagles and Kingfishers - just some of the kaleidoscope of bird species nesting in habitation along the river banks.
Kudu majestically roam the bush veld while Zebra graze lazily on the open plains. Nyala and Bush buck appear from the lengthening shadows and Largemouth Bass glide below in rock crevices as the crimson sunset gives way to a shimmering moon reflected on the water. Several other species brought back from the brink of extinction enjoy the ecological harmony.

The Reserve borders the Thomas Baines Nature Reserve, situated in the main water catchment area of Grahamstown at the confluence of two rivers - the dominant Kariega River flowing 40km further to meet the Indian Ocean at Kenton-on-Sea. Malaria-free, the area is known as Frontier Country embracing a variety of cultures, from existing tribes and others establishing themselves as early as 1812.

Perfectly balanced, Crown River is a nature lover's paradise with dense ravine thickets, scattered thorn trees and open areas making this an idyllic outdoor experience. The Crown River philosophy is driven by making quality and lasting friendships, bringing guests closer to nature and ensuring that they experience enduring memories.

The Crown River Safari Lodge is situated on the waters edge, offers direct access to the water for sunset- and river-cruisers and canoeing.
The Lodge sleeps 8 Guests, 4 En-Suite bedrooms which includes a spacious attic sleeping three. Separate male and female restrooms available

Afternoons are enjoyed watching various antelope and warthog drinking at the water's edge.

Guest Comments

I highly recommend Crown River Safari, it was truly above and beyond my expectations.The lodge is beautiful, stunning scenery, lovely game viewing, tranquil and scenic. The staff are extremely helpful and went above and beyond their call of duty to make our stay amazing. I would recommend a four wheel drive if possible for the sand road but a standard car would cope with the terrain when driving slowly and carefully. Truly an unforgettable experience.

What an amazing setting and so close to Grahamstown. Loved all the animal life ! Just chilled on the veranda as much as possible and soaked up what Africa's really about.
