A group of us (3 adults & 3 children ages 7-13) stayed at Rhino River Camp for two nights and had a great time. The lodge is essentially a luxury tented camp - the tents are spacious, well appointed, very clean and nicely situated overlooking the river flowing through a small valley. The lodge is located right on the edge... More

Alberto and his staff were amazing hosts and catered to our every need. The food was hands down the best safari food we've had (in three years in Kenya!). And the staff were very personable. Our game drive guide, Paul knew every nook and cranny of the park, and had amazing gut instinct and inside knowledge about every species imaginable.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at RRC, as it covers all your needs with an excellent quality. The (italian) food is delicious. The rooms are decorated with extreme good taste, and their view of the river helps you relax after your game drive. Excellent siestas! Our driver Joel was so great. So friendly and really an expert on game drives.... More

Nice hotel tucked away next to a gushing river..serene and peaceful, the perfect place to go and relax with friends/family and unwind. If travelling by road during the rainy season, ensure it is in a 4 wheel drive as roads tend to get tricky in the park with the black cotton soil. Staff were friendly, great and accommodating as well... More

We spent 3 days at RRC and it was truly paradise. The grounds are unbelievable and blend in so well with the surrounding forest. The refinement of the decoration transports you to a world of luxury and finesse. The staff are extremely attentive and do make you feel very special. The food was excellent throughout (breakfast, lunch and dinner). During... More

We recently had a short 2 night stay at this luxury camp. Alberto does a wonderful job managing the place. The Italian-inspired menu was very tasty with some surprising touches. Our "tent" was a very private, well-appointed bedroom and bathroom overlooking the river. The frogs and crickets are very loud at night and that adds to the experience. We enjoyed... More

We stayed at Rhino River camp over 1 year ago.. delayed review but needed to be done! Food is amazing and the tents are true luxury. We stayed in the tent that was called Tarzan, built over the river. Very private and made us feel like part of the wild. We were lucky to have the camp all to ourselves.... More

The Rhino River Camp ranks top on my safari camp experiences in Kenya. The unique combination of being luxurious and affordable makes this an excellent choice. The manager, Alberto, runs the camp flawlessly and the staff and game drive guides are outstanding. I have been on several safaris over the past two years and this camp is by far the... More

We spent several nights at the boundary of Meru National Park in this lovely, private camp. The affable and charming manager, Alberto, was eager for conversation and always curious to know how our stay was going. He went to great lengths to ensure our special needs were accommodated. The staff were all respectful, polite and professional. The chef prepared restaurant-quality... More
