Hubby and I came on honeymoon for 4 nights. It was absolutely amazing, everyone was extremely friendly and the food was fantastic. We had awesome game drives with amazing animal sightings. We had the most amazing time and will be back for sure! Highly recommend!

Myself and my fiance were at Rhino Sands for 2 nights in August and it was the best safari lodge we had ever been to. The staff were brilliant from the chefs, waiters, safari guide (Anton) to Management. The food was excellent and just added to an overall great experience. Will be back 4sure!.

Thank you so much for sharing your feedback here on Trip Advisor. While we are operating largely in the domestic market it is truly a test of a safari lodge as our guests are generally well travelled and have visited many, many different safari camps in their life. To be the best you have every experienced is an honour that we are extremely proud of. I will make sure the team gets your complimentary feedback and we absolutely look forward to hosting you again in the future!

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 tip: tent 1 and 2 have a better view of the water, but tent 4 has the most privacy. I was in tent 4 and absolutely LOVED it.

Thank you so much for your fantastic feedback. One of the upsides of these difficult times is getting to host so many locals who are experiencing Rhino Sands and Manyoni for the very first time. I am so thrilled you enjoyed your stay, and I know that the team members you mention by name here will truly appreciate your praise. I think you discovered one of the best secrets to a stay at a safari camp...staying a day or two longer and just taking the time to relax into the camp and experience itself. The game drives are awesome, but there is a whole other layer of experience lying in bed in the morning, waking up with the sounds of the forest and the beautiful sun streaming through the trees. It's my absolute favorite time of day in our camp, and I am so glad you got to experience it. Thanks again for the wonderful feedback and for taking the time to share it here.

Amazing experience which was equivalent to royalty. Sleeping in the open luxury tent was out of this world, the game drives were the best we have ever had and we even got to witness a lion kill..... live. The food was mind blowing especially the impala steak, the chefs were amazing and thank you for the birthday cake.
The staff was brilliant from the moment we got off our vehicle till the moment we went back to go home. Sbo, Jonno, Patrick, Bongani, Jason, Louis and Gerrard you guys made our stay extra special. We will see you guys again soon, that's a promise.

Our family spent four glorious days at Rhino Sands over Easter. What an amazing tented camp! Having stayed at many bush lodges across Africa - we highly recommend Rhino Sands as a genuine 5 Star bush camp. The main lodge and tented luxury suites are spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The staff were all friendly, hospitable, very attentive and welcoming. The game drives and our guide, Anton, were wonderful. The food was outstanding and our chef, Bongani, gave us an incredible variety of scrumptious dishes! It was a wonderful four day feast! The best were the many surprises Rhino Sands put on for us. We will leave those surprises unmentioned so as not to spoil it for future guests. Thank you to each and every one of you at Rhino Sands for such a wonderful all round bush experience. We will be back!

What a pleasure it was to have your family here for the Easter holiday weekend. We truly appreciate you taking the time to review us here and thank you so very much for all the wonderful compliments. I will make sure to pass along your praise to the team. We love having the camp booked for exclusive use with families...it is very heartwarming to watch all the special memories being made. I loved seeing the pictures from your group of family game time in between game drives. Once again, thank you for this review and thank you for choosing to stay at Rhino Sands. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.
