Game Viewing at Rhino River Lodge

Our private game reserve is just 27km north of Hluhluwe and is home to a wealth of wildlife including leopard, cheetah, elephant, black and white rhino, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, blue wildebeest, warthog, bushpig and ostrich.
Amongst our great variety of antelope we are fortunate to have the red duiker, this shy creature is relatively rare and is only found in a small part of Zululand. Many fascinating smaller mammals such as jackal, porcupine, vervet monkey, tortoise, caracal, serval, and mongoose and genet can also be seen.


This Big 5 private game reserve is just 27km north of Hluhluwe and is home to a wealth of wildlife.

Our intimate and exclusive lodge is set in the very heart of Zululand against the backdrop of the lovely Lebombo Mountains. Come and join us for a unique bush experience. Feel the weight being lifted from your shoulders from the moment you arrive. Breathe in the fresh aromatic air of the bushveld and feel the outside world draining from your being. Heal your soul with starlit nights around the campfire and walk where only animals have trodden for years.

The Rhino River Lodge

The Lodge itself is situated on the banks of then Umsunduze River in spacious grounds. The comfortable lounge, dining and bar area has a raised deck looking out through majestic Fever trees to the river below which is lined with ancient Fig trees. The boma area attached to the lodge is a popular gathering place in the evening where guests can indulge themselves in fire gazing whilst sampling our selection of South African wines, and regale each other with tales of the African bushveld.

Our well-equipped facilities are ideal for small conferences and workshops, or just for that secluded holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The sparkling swimming pool offers cool respite at the end of a hot and busy day in Zululand, whether it is game viewing or conferencing. In the early morning and late afternoon, our resident family of warthog can often be seen grazing on the lawn, and if you sit quietly you might also catch sight of the shy red duiker that frequents the lodge.


Rhino River Lodge hosts attractive catered & fully equipped self-catering log cabins under thatch. Each cabin accommodates 5 people and is constructed from locally sourced materials. The combination of thatch and ironstone-tiled flooring offers comfortable respite from the heat of the day and a home-from-home base at the hub of the region’s tourist attractions.

We also have 4 en suite double/twin Units. Each Unit has tea and coffee making facilities as well as a mini bar. The Units have a private entrance and secluded verandah overlooking the Umsunduze River where guests can enjoy an early morning coffee or an evening sundowner whilst contemplating their day before joining us around the boma fire for pre-dinner drinks.
