Zululand - Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge 3 nights

Rhino Ridge

Spend 3 nights at Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge in the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park.
Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge is situated on the western boundary in the first private concession within Africa’s oldest proclaimed game reserve, Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park, Northern KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.  Set in a 96 000 hectare park Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge enables guests to enjoy 4 star luxury
Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge accommodates a maximum of 36 guests in 4 different room types. The rooms have been carefully positioned high up on a ridge to take full advantage of the spectacular views over the hills and valleys of Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park while at the same time giving each room maximum privacy. This has resulted in some of the rooms being quite a distance from the central lodge facility with some of them being a 200 metre walk to the main lodge area. Guests are advised to pack comfortable flat shoes for walking along the paths.

Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge is the only private lodge situated inside the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park so all our game drives start from the lodge. Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge offers both early morning and afternoon/evening game drives. Game drive safaris are conducted in specially adapted open game viewing vehicles, with professional guides (maximum 9 people per vehicle). To preserve our wilderness no off-road driving is practiced. In addition to driving on our private concession within the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park we also have unlimited access to the greater Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park where you have the opportunity to spot the Big 5. Our guides meet the stringent requirements of Ezemvelo Parks Authority and senior guides hold the highest guiding qualifications possible in South Africa, to ensure that your encounters with the African bush are exciting, informative and safe.

Early morning tea/coffee, rusks & fruit are served on the deck before setting off on your morning drive. Another refreshment stop is made during the morning drive after which you return to the lodge to enjoy a scrumptious breakfast.

High tea is served in the early afternoon after which guests can enjoy an afternoon game drive with a sundowner break before driving into the early evening looking for nocturnal creatures. On arrival at the lodge guests are given the opportunity to freshen up before enjoying a delicious dinner on the deck.

A walking safari brings you closer to the heartbeat of the bush, submitting yourself to the mercy of nature. Knowledgeable guides know exactly where to take their guests for exciting, yet safe encounters with pristine fauna and flora.
