This was my first visit to the lodge and I will definitely return. My room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable - I had a wonderful view of the river from my verandah. The staff were welcoming and friendly while still staying professional. The food was decadently delicious. Our ranger, Hala, was exceptional. He did his absolute best to give us the best game experiences....one being a sighting of the wild dogs and following them on a hunt...unbelievable to see how they all work together to obtain success. We saw four of the Big Five, besides Impala, Giraffe, Zebra etc. Thank you Hala!! Actually, thank you to all the staff for a wonderful stay. You are all stars!!
My husband and I stayed in the COTTAGE. All the lodge amenities were excellent , the food was delicious and the game drives were spectacular. Kyle thank you for the awesome Painted Wolves sighting, our first ever on a bush drive and of course the Rhino sightings . To all the lodge staff thank you for a memorable and awesome time and when we can we will return :)
We visited Rhino River Lodge for a much-needed long weekend break with our kids aged 15 and 12. What a wonderful, effortless and informative time in the bush. My wife and I enjoy the Manyoni Private Game Reserve for the diversity of game and habitats, and we have visited Rhino River Lodge on several previous occasions, but it is always a joy to return to this lodge. The staff are relaxed and welcoming but thoroughly organised and efficient. The small size of the lodge creates an intimate atmosphere but at an overall cost (especially for our family of 4) which is more affordable and better value for money than other lodges or reserves. Add to this the unique experience of joining a rhino dehorning operation which we arranged through the lodge during our stay, will make this holiday one we and our kids will never forget!…
Loved our time in the bush (as always) in the extremely comfortable luxurious Homestead unit where we were spoilt with some special sightings such as dwarf chameleon, porcupine, owls as well as all the regular superstars like lions & elephants and were even blessed with a stunning cheetah sighting too.
Staying at Rhino River Lodge was an awesome holiday to recharge the batteries. We have visited as a couple in the past and now went as a family. Sightings were awesome and the guide Stuart was magnificent. Can not falter the trip.
