I am originally South African and am now living in Australia. Decided to bring my Aussie boyfriend out and we were fortunate enough to stay at Black Rhino for five days! Our stay was unreal! Saw amazing sightings - on one day in particular the elephants visited us at the watering hole right infront of the lodge on three separate... More

Arrived to a lovely welcome from Eva and tour of the lodge and facilities. Within the first 10 minutes of our first game drive we saw lions, rhinos, giraffe, zebra and impala and this continued with us seeing all of the "Big 5" plus a lot more up close and personal. Phillip who took us for our first drives was... More

The Black Rhino Game Lodge was even better than I thought it was going to be. The lodge was beautiful and the suites were lovely and secluded. The food was delicious, the staff fantastic and the game drives fabulous! The lodge is exactly the place you want to stay if you want an incredible safari experience!

From the moment we were greeted by Paul and Eva we knew it was going to be a very special break.They made us feel so welcome, taking time to show us around the Lodge and explaining about the game drives etc. Our accommodation was superb with huge rooms, all clean and modern, just like the photos.

We booked a last minute stay at Black Rhino after being let down by another lodge which had been over booked. This was the best thing that could have happened. Upon arrival we were met by Matthew who gave us a tour of the lodge and showed us to our room. We had a bit of time before heading out... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while staying with family in South Africa after hearing about it from them We were truly spoilt for choice from the very modern chalet we had, to the food selection. The game drives are just like you see on movies from the Rangers to the 4x4's, very authentic and well worth getting up early... More

Amazing couple of days, as soon as we arrived in the afternoon we left for the afternoon safari. Great accommodation, restaurant food was great, freshly cooked breakfast. Friendly staff, ranger could have been a bit more informative. Well worth getting up early for the morning safari, saw two male lions first thing.
