Exeter River Lodge
Staff and Guides
True African hospitality lies at the core of &Beyond's lodges and camps throughout the continent. The people of Africa, with their warm and welcoming nature, and the ability to draw guests into their hearts, inspire, educate and delight our guests every day.
A shared passion for guest delight unites all &Beyonders across Africa. For staff members at Exeter River Lodge, there is no better way to spend the day than in making our guests' safari dreams come true. Our chefs, butlers, housekeepers, security and workshop staff are trained with the same dedication as our field staff, but their pleasure in sharing your special moments is something that cannot be taught. They are the magic ingredient at Exeter River Lodge and their commitment to creating moments that take our guests' breath away is genuine.
We are renowned for having some of the most highly trained, professional, passionate and knowledgeable rangers and trackers on the continent. They have a passion for people and wildlife, ensuring unbeatable interpretive safari experiences. The rangers at Exeter River impart an incomparable wealth of knowledge, personally researched and experienced, about local habitats, ecology, birds, trees, plants, small animals and insects. Many of our rangers and trackers belong to the surrounding communities share cultural information with our guests.
The very best training
We operate two full-time &Beyond ranger training schools headed by professional ranger trainers in Africa - at Phinda in South Africa and Klein's Camp in Tanzania. Each ranger at Exeter River Lodge undergoes a rigorous eight-week training course at one of these schools before joining their team. They then receive further on-site training and benefit immensely from their colleagues' ongoing mentorship. It is through their passion for what they do, and their desire to develop and learn that &Beyond's guides are among the finest in the world.
