All of the staff here are friendly and welcoming. Our chalet was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The game rides were great fun with a helpful guide. Food was good too. A good all round experience. The animals were just beautiful in a wonderful peaceful setting.

Our family holiday was unforgettable! Clair and Chelsea made us feel at home from arrival to departure. Taking into consideration our long stay, we were made very comfortable in The Homestead. All homemade meals we eagerly anticipated with special dietary requirements well catered for - and those homemade chocolate brownies will not be forgotten! Our game drives were excellent with...

Rhino River Lodge provides comfortable accommodation in a wonderful Big 5 reserve. Guides are highly qualified and knowledgable. The standard of food was excellent and service friendly and attentive. Rhino River Lodge is fantastic value for money. Whilst there may be slightly more luxurious camps in the area, the quality and service at Rhino River Lodge is of an equal... More

Amazing accommodation, good food and more importantly a great sense of service. All that in a breath-taking nature-immersive environment. The staff pays a great deal of attention to details (during the game drives, before and after) to make your stay enjoyable. One of the definite highlights of our trip in South Africa

They were lovely to the small children; the food was delicious and abundant; the accommodation was comfortable and the rangers really knew their stuff and were able to give us lots of useful information on...

From a visitors perspective... Game Ranging should not be labelled, "a job"! To have the opportunity to wake up every morning and interact with the natural beauty of our surroundings and it's 4-legged inhabitants is an honour! One day when I grow up, I want to retire at a place like Rhino River Lodge. I will become a permanent resident!... More

We enjoyed three superb days at Rhini River Lodge. Our accommodation was lovely, our food was wonderful and our game experiences were varied and interesting. Nyala grazing by the pool, dinner next to the camp fire and a bush walk we're just some of our highlights.

Spent 2 nights there and really enjoyed the visit. Service was excellent from start to finish, as was the food both wrt presentation and quality. It was cold, but our ranger, Frances, made sure we were warm with nice thick blankets. Tip - take a beanie, a scarf and gloves for the game drives in winter. The staff were all... More

Wonderful few days - Frances was our amazing ranger - very special experience. We'll be back! Attentive staff, great game drives and comfortable accommodation. Lucky to be entertained by Qadasi on our last night. Best value for money in Zululand! Thank you.

My boyfriend and our young daughter went for a week long safari at Rhino River Lodge and it was absolutely a perfect experience all around! The accommodations were wonderful and comfortable - very upscale rustic - ideal! The rangers on the game drives were incredibly knowledgable and friendly and always made us feel very at home and went out of... More
