In the early 1900's white rhinos numbers had dwindled to as low as 50 - 100 left in the world, and all of them were in the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Game Reserve. Today, South Africa’s first game reserve is still home to the densest population of white rhino on the planet.

GUEST REVIEWS

“Awesome beauty of pristine savannah”

The lodge and the National Park is an absolute gem. Even though South Africa has a very high standard in Safari and lodge a accommodation this amazingly beautiful gem stands out. The view from the lodge, pool, rooms and is breathtaking. But location is surpassed by the gorgeous and delightful staff who let you experience the world famous South African hospitality. This lodge set some new standard for me. I am recommend to arrange this visit at the end of your trip so you want be disappointed by other Safari Lodges.

“The Perfect Stay”

We stayed at Rhino Ridge for 3 days and 3 nights and I wish we could have stayed longer. Everything about our stay was perfect. First, the staff from the waiters to the safari guides was truly exceptional. Everyone was so friendly and kind, we were sad to leave them. We had a dedicated safari guide, who we went out with twice a day for 3 hours (6-9 am and 4-7pm). One each safari ride we would stop for a snack and drink (in the morning coffee/tea) and in the afternoon a drink of choice (from wine to gin and tonic). We saw tons of animals on each drive. The only animal hard to track down was the lion and the leopard.

“Everything was spot on”

It was all the little touches that made this Lodge and safari experience so special. Despite the early starts pre breakfast was taken at a leisurely pace with our guide, Halal, bringing the truck round to reception when we were all ready. We had plenty of space sharing our family experience with a fun couple. The G&T sundowners slipped down very easily as did the coffee during the morning game drives. Our rooms were beautifully decorated and the view from shower rooms with open doors made you feel you were very much part of the environment. All meals were of very high quality - the beef being a highlight for all of us.
