Charter a flight to experience Africa at its best, to untamed nature and warm hospitality at Rhino River Lodge. This family-owned Big 5 safari lodge is located in the magnificent Manyoni Private Game Reserve and is situated on a 23,000-hectares of private land in the very heart of Zululand. This piece of paradise is north of well-known Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, renowned for its African wildlife and rich cultural heritage.
Some interesting conservation history
In 2004, 17 private properties in the northern Zululand area dropped their fences creating one area, Manyoni Private Game Reserve (formerly Zululand Rhino Reserve). This is home to a population of black rhinos and is part of the World Wildlife Fund Black Rhino Range Expansion Project. The joining of properties created a private game reserve in one of the most animal-rich and species-diverse areas of South Africa.
The reserve is now home to the Big 5 and has seen the re-introduction of two endangered carnivore species, cheetah and African wild dog.
The accommodation is a relaxed family-style safari lodge with a reputation for excellent customer service and superior value for money. It offers game drives, guided by knowledgeable rangers in open safari vehicles. Enjoy hearty South African cuisine, served under the stars around a campfire.
After an exhilarating bush experience, we’ll fly you to your next destination.
