We arrived by boat and received a very warm welcome from Jenny and the camp staff. It was late afternoon and chairs had been set out on the shoreline and we were given a refreshing drink and snacks as we sat and chatted waiting for the sun to go down. Kariba sunsets are spectacular and depending on the time of... More

Brilliant place to experience the bush. This is what it is about - if you want luxury this isn't for you but if you want a great experience, good accommodation, fantastic food and good guides this place is for you. Jenny the owner is really knows all about the bush and is very helpful and friendly. We loved the open... More

As perhaps your more squeamish traveller I was unsure about spending the night in a hut on stilts with one side completely open to the Zimbabwe wilderness, but after a night at Rhino Safari Camp I have definitely been converted. Greeted with drinks on the beach as we watched the stunning sunset, it was apparent that Jenny and her team... More

A night at Rhino Camp was a highlight on a recent trip to Zimbabwe. The Camp itself is delightfully basic and full of character and charm. (By character I don't mean horrible falling down type character - I mean proper proper character!!) Arrival onto the beach was spectacular - and welcomed with a cooling G&T and the broad smiles of...

If you like luxury safaris and lodges, Rhino isn't for you. But if you want to truly sleep next to the wildlife and have the ultimate, authentic safari experience, they you will love Rhino Safari Camp.

We were on a 12n private safari with a terrific guide from Zimbabwe, Craig Van Zyl. We left all the accommodations and parks up to the expert. After 5 nights in a mobile camp in Mana Pools we flew to Kariba, Not knowing what to expect I was first engaged by the beautiful look of Lake Kariba, and driving into... More

The owners where not on site during our recent 2 night visit, but cannot fault the hospitality of Levi and Stephen. Simple but comfortable accommodation leads to interesting encounters before you even go on a drive. Stephen gets you really close to the animals, and demonstrates a deep knowledge. The water drives are brilliant. Food is excellent with a good... More

I have been to Kariba and stayed on the Lake 3 times now, and Rhino Safari Camp in August of this year was my best experience to date. Jenny and Karl made us very welcome .. even before we had left Harare we were in touch by phone and whats app. The chalets were amazing - with built in natural... More

A beautiful boat ride on lake Kariba lands you at open air huts on stilts. Very comfortable and original, allowing you to be part of the surroundings while safe and sound in your bed. Jenny, the owner and manager, is very welcoming, friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and interesting. Steve, our guide was very knowledgable and found us lions within 1 hour... More
