Very nice place in Pilanesberg. The rooms were great; safaris and food were decent. However, we did have some amazing sightings of rhino and elephant. Very friendly staff - special mention to Spencer!

We spent the weekend at Black Rhino Lodge in Black Rhino Game Reserve. I have travelled extensively and many of my travels were to Game Lodges in South Africa and Tanzania. We were greeted with welcome drinks on arrival! After that we were taken out for a late afternoon drive. Our Game Ranger Ruan, laid a snack table for us... More

Short 2 night stay with 4 game drives. Great staff, spacious rooms, and really good game viewing. Johann was an especially friendly, engaged, and thoughtful guide who made the game viewing even better. Watering hole behind the lodge offers great views during meals.

Black Rhino is a very nice lodge for couples to go to. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the boma dinner experience was excellent which added to the whole bush atmosphere. A few minor issues with the accommodation which are easily overlooked, but I am sure they will attend to them per the check out document. Our neighbors... More

First time visit to Game Resort. The reception was organized, welcoming and friendly. The rooms were clean, stylish and comfortable. The meals were excellent and well prepared. Our ranger was a walking encyclopedia with knowledge of the wild. We learned so much from him. Overall, the staff were courteous, friendly and very helpful. Cannot wait to return.

We spent two days in this all inclusive luxury resort as a treat to ourselves after staying in cheaper alternatives n the Pilanesberg. We are not sure that we got anything more here than at much more reasonable alternatives. First impressions count, and while the welcome was warm and friendly, the furnishings in the reception area, while clearly luxurious and... More

The rooms are wonderful! The menu could do with some beefing up. The location is wonderful. We had a brilliant game drive with very close elephant encounters. Saw a serval, which was a first for us. The game rangers are really great, so eager to impart their knowledge, and so enthusiastic! The concession is a little quieter from a game... More

Our experience at Black Rhino Game Lodge was amazing. The staff were extremely helpful, attentive and willing to do the extra mile to ensure our stay was enjoyable, even willing to do a special turn down service as it was a special occasion for us. On the game drive, the guide was extremely knowledgeable, providing fascinating pieces of info and... More

I had never been to Africa before but was convinced by some colleagues to stay a few extra days following a business trip. We rounded off our ten days with a private stay at Nwanedi. What an experience ! Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and the friendliness if everyone (which goes for the whole of South Africa... More

My husband and I booked into the Black Rhino last Saturday after arriving on an overnight flight from London. The lodge was about 3 hours from the airport so it is an expensive drive to hire a car but well worth while. Our room was great and ready for us early. There are two safari's each day - one at...
