My family and I spent three nights at the Cottage. It was nothing short of amazing. The staff went all out to make sure our stay was comfortable. We had our own pool, the kids were chuffed. We travelled with our 8 month old son, the chefs went an extra mile of preparing his own meals throughout the day. One thing for sure, you will not go hungry at Rhino River Lodge, the food is absolutely amazing. We learnt so much on the game drives. Our ranger, Bongani, was so, so knowledgeable. The managers, Sharon and Claire, are such sweethearts, they took care of every little detail and ensured that we were well taken care of. A beautiful lodge that we certainly will visit again

We stayed at Rhino River for 5nights at the Homestead! We absolutely loved our accommodation and it was great having our own pool. The food was amazing - you definitely won’t go hungry! James & Bongani were our guides, we had incredible sightings and learnt so much from each of them! It was definitely a holiday that we’ll talk about for a long time 🎉

In general, it was a wonderful visit. Everyone worked hard to make our stay a comfortable and enjoyable one. Our guide, Taye, was superb. The reception and catering team was excellent. The rooms were good but too many insects get through each night. We almost touched the cheetahs.
