Black Rhino Lodge Safari

Black Rhino Lodge safari is currently the best value-for-money deal in Pilanesberg National Park. Black Rhino Lodge is a cosy 4-star lodge situated in a Tamboti forest. The lodge offers exclusive game viewing in a private section of the Pilanesberg. The private reserve is called the Black Rhino Reserve. It is malaria free.

Your day will start with game drives into secluded valleys and end with the tasty cuisine that the lodge’s private chef carefully prepares. Professional rangers will accompany you on an educational game drive. You can sit back and relax on open game drive vehicles. The experienced rangers are very knowledgeable about the fauna and flora of the Black Rhino Private Game reserve.

The communal entertainment area at the lodge offers guests a fully equipped kitchen as well as a relaxing lounge and dining area. The restaurant and bar flow onto the viewing deck. The covered patio and plunge pool invite you to relax after game drives and also give you the opportunity to spot more game frequenting the waterhole in front of the lodge.

The luxury suites offer guests a private retreat that opens up onto a patio overlooking the African bush, where plains game and elephants have been spotted. The large windows give the rooms an airy feel. Children of all ages are welcome at the lodge.
