Nice lodge and ideal for a family. We were with a 4 years old and everything went smoothly. Rooms are gorgeous and Terrasse and service are nice. Food is not like a 5 stars hotel but simple and good, this is what you can expect in the middle of the bush :)

We stayed here for three nights in March, and I had the most fantastic time. The lodge was picturesque, the surroundings brilliant, and the watering hole behind the restaurant topped it off. The staff were friendly, and always keen to help us (we had a young baby). The game drives were inspiring, and we were lucky to have a pride... More

Very nice for a quick weekend getaway - lovely, spacious rooms - loved the outdoor shower. Beautiful lodge, great service. Didn't see a lot on the game drives, but guides made every effort to keep it interesting. Wouldn't mind going back

This is one of my favourite holiday spots and I recommend it. I have stayed at Black Rhino four times and have booked my fifth stay. I work in Johannesburg and whenever I have family or friends visit from abroad I take them out to Black Rhino for an amazing safari and bush break. The staff are fantastic. They are... More

I have been to many Southern African Game or Safari lodges over he years that are in the same pricing category as Black Rhino, so when I was looking for a lodge close to Johannesburg that was small and intimate I expected the same level of professionalism that I became used to with Southern African lodges. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!! The... More

We spent a couple of days at the the self catering Buffalo Thorn Lodge within the Black Rhino reserve. The facilities were great, with all areas covered from a jacuzzi,swimming pool,gas bbq (braai), satelite TV and AV unit, pool table, ice machine etc etc. All the facilities were definitely 5 star and what we expected. My only reservation with young... More

The drive to the lodge is a rather treacherous road with potholes everywhere - but makes for an adventurous start to a superb weekend in the bush. Staff were great and service was just superb. All meals were buffet, but what a great selection there was. Game drive was insightful with some great animal sightings. Accommodation was wonderful with a... More

I had the opportunity to stay at the Black Rhino lodge last weekend (February 2014). The rooms were lovely, very spacious and well decorated. Absolutely LOVED the outdoor shower and walking into the airconditioned room after a game drive with temperatures well in the 30's was fantastic. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the herd of elephants that... More
