We spent three wonderful days at this RRL Game Reserve. All our expectations were fullfilled - except the elephants...... The entire knowledge of Francis, our ranger Girl, about the animals and nature was highly appreciated. The Service was excellent regarding housekeeping and especially the romantic dinners arround an open fireplace. Thanks for all of it. We certainly will be back... More

While on business in Durban, I managed to take a couple of days off to stay at the Rhino River Lodge. It is about a 3 hour drive north of Durban, but it is all highway until you get there so it is easy even for someone from the U.S.A. The staff were wonderful. I only had a European style... More

A phenomenal experience and the best value for money. From making the booking to our departure, the staff could not have done more for us. We had an unforgettable time. The special dinner prepared for us in the bush surrounded by lanterns was a highlight for us. Staying in the cottage was perfect. Such luxury to have a private deck... More

All in all a beautiful, small scaled safari camp, very friendly staff and rangers who know their job well. Food was very tasty and well prepared.The lodge where we stayed in, especially the bathroom, was not clean and needs some restoration. Water leaking from the shower into the bathroom and mould, are not supposed to be in a luxury lodge.... More

The lodging was good and the food was very tasty, and service very personalised to our kids sometimes "special requests".Very familiar atmosphere. Will recommend South Africa in general and Rhino River Lodge in... More

We spent three days - six game drives - as a group of five in the quiet and lovely Homestead - with smashing outdoor showers - if you want them - a lovely deck with a small pool looking over a jolly family of warthogs, as well as various nyala and bushbucks. Of course, the main thing is the drive.... More

Enjoyable stay in a lovely setting. We have been on faster paced safaris before however this one was more relaxed. Our Informative and experienced guide was Frances who allowed time for questions and viewing (and photographing) animals without stressing them.... Incredibly knowledgeable. Sun downer drinks were a lovely touch. The resort manager Clare was lovely too ensuring that all was... More

This is my second time back with family and friends, who were absolutely blown away by the whole experience of being in the bush! For Audrey and Claudine from Belgium, it was their first time on a safari! For them it was like an "Out of Africa" movie. We found everything amazing, from friendly staff, awesome ranger Nico, and Francis,... More
