My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon trip to South Africa and had a fantastic time. The room was lovely - very clean and comfortable, with enough privacy for a couples trip. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful throughout. We also thoroughly enjoyed the game drives and managed to see the big 5 during out stay! Our guide, Freedom, was extremely knowledgable and great at spotting the various animals. We also really enjoyed the food available everyday - lots of variety and a good quantity. We would certainly recommend staying here - it really was a great experience!
Always lovely in the bush, and this concession is no different. The lodge, on the whole, is okay, and the rooms are good. Meals are very, very average in a large dining area with very bright lighting and a very poor wine list. Service is also not great. The game drives are good, but the connector road from the concession to the Pilansberg Game Park takes about 1 hour, is rushed and on a horrible road. Doing this gives you access to more game but minimal time on the Pilansberg side.
Great (and plentiful) food. Knowledgeable rangers with excellent game drive experiences for Pilanesburg. Generally friendly staff. Relaxing setting and excellent accommodation. Would recommend and stay again.
We stayed at the Black Rhino for 6 nights. Traveling from the UK with 2 small children and not wanting to travel too much, this place was incredible. Shorter family drives for the children was perfect as well as the longer drives in the morning or afternoon for us. But, with the watering hole right behind the restauarnt we could see so much without evening leaving the reserve. The pool area is also great. The staff were incredible, so friendly and accomodating to us as well as the children. The food was also so lovely and always something different and tasty. An amazing holiday we will never forget! I have recommended it to friends and family and hope to visit again one day.
A great getaway to go to. Easy 2.5 hour drive from Johannesburg. From the time of booking to the time that we left, staff and service was great. All meals were of a high standard. The staff catered to our dietary requirements with no problem. Game drive were great and informative. As advertised we were able to see the big 5, including a range of other game and birds. Only niggle was the room that we stayed in was tired and needed a make over. That aside a wonderfull experience.
