Rhino River Lodge is a private 23,000 hectare reserve in the heart of Zululand, 30kms North of the Hluhluwe Game Reserve, but in non-geographical terms it’s the quintessential blend of privacy mixed with the pulse of the African wild.
Upon arrival, expect to be welcomed with a refreshing fruit juice in a champagne glass with a kind suitor ready to introduce you to your bush wonderland for the next few days. The lodge property will immediately make you feel at home with the most beautiful shades of beiges and greens surrounding your every step, as if continually greeting you to the wilderness experience ahead.
The inclusive bush stay includes a continental and warm breakfast, a light lunch, and a sophisticated 3 course dinners with a warm South African flair, often served under the stars around a campfire. Let’s not forget the two daily game drives that will keep your heart beating to the pace with the African wild. The lodge’s private reserve is home to the Big 5 and if you’re lucky you might spot the infamous black rhino, which is quite a sighting knowing only four wander the intimate property.
The quaint en-suite double rooms with a signature high-ceiling thatched roof are a common theme to the character of the lodge, as well as an exclusive patio where it’s easy to drift into a bush dreamland. It’s also the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine or cold beer and listen to the sound of the birds singing in the surrounding trees.
