Recently went to visit Rhino Sands. First time after several years at different camps. Our experience was awesome. Very private, exclusive, tailored feel to it. Super relaxing and enjoyable. Jono our guide was great, knowledgeable and friendly. Food was good and service was on point. Jennifer and Nico as well as the other members took care of us and definitely will be back. Probably book the whole camp next time as only 4 tents. Sounds like a good idea.
An absolutely magical experience. With capacity being 8 people, even when it's full it still feels private. The food was remarkable, really amazing. Jason the chef made provisions for a dairy/gluten free eater too. Jono the guide was so brilliant, he knew EVERYTHING and we just adored him. Jared and Louis were also amazing. Because we had 4 nights we decided to spend 1 day just enjoying the room and only do the pm game drive, if you get a chance to enjoy the room, do. It's .... wow.
Room: Incredible room with beautiful views of the river. The bird life is exceptional and you feel as if you are sleeping in the bush. Total comfort, with an outdoor shower, pool and amenities. Game Drives: We had an exceptional ranger and the sightings were fantastic. Topped off by some amazing drinks stops in both the morning and evening. Overall: Nico and his team are not afraid to go the extra mile to make sure you are looked after. They are exceptional. I would also like to mention that the two chefs are incredibly creative, and will cater to all your needs. The meals were better than any restaurant I've ever been to. Thank you again to all at Rhino Sands for making our stay peaceful, romantic and luxurious.
What a breathtaking magical experience. Thank you so much for your AMAZING TOP RANGE HOSPITALITY. From your friendly staff to your delicious food to the endless fun game drive experience, THANK YOU. Not forgetting your rooms, I’m still in disbelief that I had experienced a bit of heaven on earth. I had an idea of how I’d want my partners birthday to be like and you turned it all into reality, I’ll forever be grateful. I’m honestly out of words… because WOW Thandeka Dladla Durban, South Africa
I can’t say enough about our experience at Rhino Sands. I traveled with my cousin and this was our first trip to South Africa and our first safari. Having had this trip postponed by Covid we were so excited to finally be here. It did not disappoint! The staff was just wonderful and I wish I’d have written down their names to individually thank them for their service. Attention to detail definitely sums up the service here. The food was incredible. It was like dining in a five star restaurant amongst the wilds of South Africa. Of course the games drives is why you come and they didn’t disappoint! Our guide was Jono (hoped I spelled that correctly) and he’s very knowledgeable about the animals, birds, flora and insects. How he could spot a tiny spider in the dark was beyond amazing! We saw a hyena carry her kill along the road, a cheetah with her kill and lions and vultures finish off another kill as well as lots of other animals. For me seeing the elephants in their natural setting was the highlight for me. Oh and a bit about covid protocols at the camp and in South Africa in general. All staff members wore masks. Our temperatures were taken everyday. Only the cleaning staff are allowed into your tent. Our travels also took us to Cape Town and Durban and again temperatures taken upon arrival and departure from the hotels, all staff wore masks, hand sanitizer applied or a available before entering the restaurants. Many thanks to everyone at Rhino Sands for making this trip of a lifetime beyond amazing. We hope someday to return,…
