We went here as a treat for my mother in law and were not disappointed We got a bit lucky (planned) by going mid week as not a lot of people of what is a small lodge. Meant we often had entire vehicle and a ranger to ourselves. They're very good though do tend to chase the big 5 for... More

We spent three fantastic days at the Black Rhino Game Lodge in Pilanesberg National Park and enjoyed every minute of it. We loved our thatched roof villa, well appointed - king size bed, leather lounge chair with 2 single chair in the spacious bedroom/sitting/living area. Well appointed bathroom with huge, deep bath to soak in plus an additional private outdoor... More

Your own thatched villa/ lodge in the heart of a private section of the pilanseburg national park, with a patio overlooking a well used watering hole, with 5 star spec, and meals, and tour guides/rangers that are unbelievable. We were only here for 24 hrs before we flew home, but in that time, our guide Tyrone, managed to track and... More

Great place with friendly knowledgeable warden. Bushwalking highly recommend . The food is honest , no frills. Saw plenty of rhinos, elephants and were taught a lot about different species from the big game down to little chameleons. Would go back in a flash.

Unfortunately I was only able squeeze a single night at the end of a business trip but what an amazing taster it was. The accommodation was spacious and definitely 4 star although getting a little tired in some areas. The common area and dining look out on a waterhole where plenty of game come to drink. The food was excellent... More

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
