I had the pleasure of spending a night at Rhino River Lodge in September. My trip to S. Africa was primarily to visit a friend in the Durban area, and I had no idea what to expect of a trip to the bush. I couldn't believe that such wonderful accomodations, food, and game drives could be available for such a reasonable price. My room was beautiful and clean and fully represented the bush experience. The food was incredible and the service, outstanding.
The game drives were the highlight, and I couldn't believe the cost was included in the room package. I had the pleasure of seeing numerous rhino, including moms and babies up close and personal. There was a huge herd of water buffalo, along with wildebeest, zebra, ostrich, nyala, kudus, wart hogs and impalas. I also was able to see several hippos in the only hippo pond in the area. The place was teeming with wildlife. Although I didn't see the lion or elephant, I was thrilled with the amount of wildlife seen in my short visit. I'll just have to come back! Finally, with all of the publicity regarding rhino preservation, it was such a comfort seeing these amazing, prehistoric animals not only protected, but flourishing in this special place.
Thanks to all of the wonderful staff at Rhino River Lodge for making this one of my top memories in my S. African experience!
