At Rhino River Lodge, the theatre of nature comes to life in vivid, startling colours. Watch as rhinos and elephants collide; see the reclusive black rhino as he slips through the riverine bush; Hear the leopard's rasping call and the lion's mighty roar as they prowls their territory at night; Delight in the many different antelope that inhabit the Zululand bush; Be dazzled by the herds of Zebra and their beautiful foals and get close the ever curious Giraffe that think they can hide behind the thorn trees!
Rhino River Lodge is an intimate and exclusive private game reserve and lodge with some of the best game viewing Zululand has to offer. Superb accommodation and exemplary service together with cuisine that features traditional South African flavours, dishes, and cooking styles and a wine list has been hand-picked to provide our guests with a selection of some of the finest affordable wines that South Africa has to offer await you.


Delightful 2 bedroomed log cabins constructed solely from locally sourced materials await you, iron-stone flooring and high thatched roofs make for a cool interior to the spacious cabins. Each cabin has it's own private boma attached for relaxing evenings and private dinners can be arranged.
In addition to these stunning log cabins, there are four luxury en suite double or twin rooms each with private entrance and verandah that overlooks the Umsunduze River.
All accommodation has coffee and tea making facilities, bar fridge, mosquito nets and ceiling fans.

The Lodge:

Join family or friends for a well-deserved sundowner on the raised deck at the lounge, dining and bar area looking out over the majestic Sycamore Figs and Fever trees that line the river below, here you can sink into the sombre, reflective twilight as the sun melts on the horizon. As darkness falls congregate around the campfire in the boma for a pre-dinner cocktail and swap stories of the African bush with superb company. These evenings are a magical part of every guest's experience, taking in the smells of the campfire, the sounds of the African night, and the splendor of an unpolluted starry sky. During the day you can refresh yourself and enjoy a lovely swim in the sparkling, crystal clear pool watching the resident warthog family mosey on the laws of the lodge, or see the timid red duiker make its way shyly across the camp nibbling at tasty tit-bits on the way.


In order to maximise our guest's chances of fulfilling their African safari wishes, we offer morning and afternoon drives, and optional extras of night drives and guided bush walks.

Our morning drives leave soon after sunrise in order to try and catch the animals whilst they are still active (especially the lions) before the heat of the day sets in. The drives are at least 3 hours long and are interrupted only by the sounds of the bush and a cup of coffee and a rusk at a scenic point, before returning to camp for an English style cooked breakfast.

The afternoon drive leaves once the day starts to cool down and the animals are active again. This is usually when the bigger animals are found close to water or mud wallows. As the sun begins to set, a complimentary drink is served before making our way back to camp and pre-dinner drinks around the boma fire.

Our night drives depart after an early supper and are about 2 hours long. This is when Africa's more secretive creatures are about. Common sightings include porcupine, small spotted genet, aardvark, white tailed mongoose, bush babys, night jars and owls and on the rare occasion hyena, leopard or honey badger can be spotted.

Our guided walks offer the more adventurous an opportunity to experience the wilds of Africa in the best possible way, on foot! A guided walk entails an interpretive bush experience as close to nature as possible. In the interests of safety the group size is limited to 6 people. Walks are undertaken either in the early morning or late afternoon and are between 2 and 3 hours long. Walking affords the unique opportunity of exploring paths that have been traversed by wild animals for centuries, and being exposed to all the smells and sounds of the bush which are not noticed when traveling by vehicle.

Very relaxing. Enjoyed the staff and game viewing. Just feel there could be a bit more for the money spent
