Beautiful lodge setting of tented rooms suspended above a small river. Saw rhino in the sanctuary, elephants, giraffe, zebra, leopard and many more. The lion was elusive this time. Ernest and Daniel were knowledgeable guides and made the trip for our kids and some first time safari-goers. A special place I would highly recommend. Carlo was a great host and... More

The staff makes everything to ensure you enjoy your stay to the fullest. Italian cuisine brings a nice change, the food is excellent whether served in the bush or at the camp. Guide (Daniel)is professional and able to recognize not only the animals, but also the flora and fauna. On top of all he is very patient with the tourists'... More

We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the service we received while here. The facilities were well maintained and clean. The only dirty areas were the roofs and the pool which had some obvious forest debris. We were offered to have the pool cleaned which we declined since it wasn't that dirty and we were only sitting on the... More

This camp is wrapped in Jungle and the noise from the insects, frogs, birds and rushing water combine to wrap you further in this rare experience. The food was delightfully Italian influenced and the young chef was eager and successful in his attempts to satisfy. My wife and I came to see animals and we were delighted often seeing so... More

The best lodge we have been in our 4 year-long Kenya adventure. This elegant and eco-friendly lodge is an outstanding entry point to one of the wildest and most beautiful parks in Kenya. The soft Italian touch in the cuisine and the warm welcoming of the managers and staff made a difference in making our Christmas special. Grazie and see... More

Of the different tented camps that I have frequented during my 17 years in Kenya, Rhino River Camp has moved to the top of my list of favorite places to stay.

We live in Kenya and went to RRC for a short holiday. Of the 100's of places to stay, this one caught our eye with the Italian cuisine--and wow--homemade foccacia, fresh homemade pizza, Italian wines, gorgeous food laid out 3x/ day. The place is gorgeous--definately Italian-African style, best of both worlds. Simple, elegant, private luxury tents with a common room... More

We (me, my sister and my teenage daughter) just spent a wonderful 2 days at Rhino River Camp in Meru national park. A truly wonderful place, great location, excellent service. Great game drives. Meru national park is a hidden treasure. Rhino River Camp a perfect place to stay and experience it.
