A Day At Rhino Ridge

Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge (Umfolozi game Reserve)

Start your morning with a hot cup of tea or coffee and rusks (a South African favourite) before heading out on the morning safari drive in an open 4x4 safari vehicle with your experienced and knowledgeable guide. Our guides will share their wealth of bush experience, which involves the identification of animals, trees, grasses, insects and birds, the medicinal uses of plants and local folklore. Many of our guides have grown up in this area bringing with them a wealth of local knowledge and folklore.

Enjoy brunch outside on the terrace or in the glass-fronted dining room, then take some time to have a snooze, read, do a few laps in the pool, indulge in a spa treatment or simply relax in the privacy of your room enjoying the endless views from your private balcony.

After a delicious afternoon high tea, you can enjoy an evening safari drive. Wind down with sundowners, watch an African sunset and spot the nocturnal animals in the park. On returning to the lodge, you’ll have the opportunity to freshen up before enjoying a delicious dinner prepared with modern, fresh, healthy and sophisticated flair, combined with attention to artistic presentation.

Bring your day in the bush to an end with a spot of stargazing at the fire pit deck as you trade stories of the day’s sightings over a nightcap. You’ll retire to your private, comfortable suite dreaming of doing it all again the next day...
