Rhino River Lodge

Zululand Rhino Reserve
Big 5 Safari Game Park, Northern KwaZulu-Natal
Fully Hosted & Catered Luxury Safari Lodge



Rhino River Lodge, set in the heart of Zululand against a backdrop of the lovely Lebombo Mountains, offers a unique bush experience and guarantees personal attention from our experienced staff.

 

The small, exclusive reserve forms part of 23 000ha which makes up the greater Manyoni Private Game Reserve (previously the Zululand Rhino Reserve).

The reserve is one of the few areas selected for the re-introduction of the rare and endangered black rhino. This project was a combined initiative of the World Wild Life Fund and KZN Ezemvelo.

Accommodation

Rhino River Lodge hosts attractive catered Log Cabins (Family Chalets) under thatch.

Each cabin accommodates five people and is constructed from locally sourced materials.

With ironstone-tiled flooring, the well-appointed chalets offer comfortable respite from the heat of the day and a home-from-home base at the hub of the region's tourist attractions.

There are also four en suite Double/Twin Rooms.

Each room has tea and coffee making facilities as well as a bar fridge and a private verandah overlooking the Msunduzi River.

This block of four rooms is serviced by a fully equipped central kitchen/dining room and a private boma area.

Being slightly set apart from the lodge and log cabins, these rooms are ideally suited to small parties of friends who would like some privacy.

All accommodation is equipped with linen, towels, crockery, cutlery.

Facilities
The lodge is situated on the banks of the Msunduzi River in spacious grounds. The comfortable lounge, dining and bar area has a raised deck looking out through majestic fever trees to the river below which is lined with ancient fig trees.

The boma area attached to the lodge is a popular gathering place in the evening where guests can indulge themselves in fire gazing whilst sampling a selection of South African wines, and regale each other with tales of the African bushveld.

The well-equipped facilities are ideal for small conferences and workshops, or just for that secluded holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Activities 
Game drives and guided walks can be arranged at a nominal fee at Rhino River Lodge.

Driving at different times of the day maximizes the variety of animals one may spot, so there are morning and afternoon drives.

We leave for the morning drive at a time agreed with our guests, stopping at a strategic point, either a waterhole or view site, to enjoy a leisurely cup of coffee and a rusk.

On the afternoon drive we usually try to find a suitable spot to view the sunset while sipping a cool sundowner, before wending our way back to the lodge and the welcoming boma fire.

Our guided walks offer the more adventurous an opportunity to experience the wilds of Africa in the best possible way, on foot!

A walking trail entails an interpretative guided walk with an experienced game ranger and a small group of guests. In the interests of safety, the group is limited to six people.

Walks are undertaken in the early morning or late afternoon and run for two to three hours. These walks afford the unique opportunity of exploring paths that have been traversed by wild animals for centuries and bring back the realisation of human vulnerability in the face of the wilds of Africa. There is a great diversity of bird life in our "birder friendly" reserve and patience will be richly rewarded with interesting sightings.

Wildlife
A wealth of wildlife including:

  • Leopard
  • Elephant
  • Black and white rhino
  • Buffalo
  • Zebra
  • Giraffe
  • Blue wildebeest
  • Warthog
  • Bushpig
  • Ostrich

Among our variety of antelope we are fortunate to have the red duiker. This shy creature is relatively rare and is only found in a small part of Zululand.

Many fascinating smaller mammals such as jackal, porcupine, vervet monkey, tortoise, caracal, serval, and mongoose can also be seen.
