We took my mother who is 89 years old on a visit to Rhulani Safari Lodge, Ralf our ranger took her and us on a trip of all trips. We saw so much. From vultures to a natural death of a Zebra. All staff on duty for those 2 days went out of their way to make my mother feel like a queen although she needed a wheelchair which was quickly organised by the staff and the evenings were magic with meals unbelievable. Thank you Rhulani we never know what the future holds but I do hope and pray that we will have the privilege to bring my mother back to Rhulani as she can't stop talking what a wonderful time she had.
