We had an awesome weekend at Rhulani! From Fantastic food to epic game drives with Ralph! Never been so close to the big 5 in nature! Even blessed to see lion cubs and cheetah cubs in the wild. Wonderful place and such friendly staff! We will for sure be back. The Lessing Family.

Dear Lessing Family Thank you very much for choosing Rhulani Safari Lodge for a visit to the African bush in the first month of the reopening after lockdown. This will help us to go back to normal business and to employ our staff again. Thank you for the kind mention of the experiences on the safaris with Ralph and with our team in the lodge. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. With best regards Rolf & Marisa

My husband and I had the most amazing honeymoon at Rhulani. We stayed three nights and Rhulani exceeded our expectations. Not only was the staff amazing, there was wildlife everywhere you looked. The rooms where amazing and we had our own heated plunge pool. While in the pool, we were visited by a buffalo, wart hogs and baboons. On the last day, they set up a private dinner on our patio under the stars to celebrate our honeymoon. The food and service was incredible. The safari was top class. Ralf was a great guide and really knowledgeable. He was also great at tracking animal tracks. We saw an entire pride of lions as well as 4 out of the 5 big five. Also, since we had to check out early on the last day, Ralf was super accommodating and started our safari an hour early. This was one of the best experiences my husband and I have ever had. I highly recommend and we can not wait to go back!

Our stay at Rhulani met all my expectations and more. Excellent drives and we saw so much in the bush, elephants, giraffe, lions, cheetah, rhino, zebra and so many more and such wonderful bird life. The waterhole was attended by elephants and giraffe and zebra every day. The accommodation was very high quality and the food was lovely. I have a dietary restriction and my needs were fully catered for. So sad that the world is going through such a difficult time right now and i truly wish everyone well at Rhulani and hope that others can enjoy the experience as much as we did once we reach the other side of this journey.

We have been to more than 100 Game Lodges all over the world and Rhulani is among top 5. The facilities are superb and all staff very kind and professional. The game viewing has been extremely good with professional game wardens who knew the Game reserve well. It was a lodge where all guests were satisfied and created a good atmosphere.

My wife and I had the most amazing honeymoon stay possible. The staff at rhulani from rangers to , front-of-house to wait staff, chefs and even night guard were all incredible. The madiekwe reserve is just superb but was made even better by the people at Rhulani. Special shout outs to our ranger Martin, chefs Mavis and Moses , Ernest, Oliver, Tom and Moses on front of house and our night guard big Mike for keeping us safe at night . Don’t think , just book now.... Rhulani Safari Lodge for an exceptional 5 star stay.
