Rhino River Lodge at wlid places
Rhino River Lodge is an intimate and exclusive lodge set in the very heart of Zululand against the backdrop of the lovely Lebombo Mountains. Come and join us for a unique bush experience on our private game reserve near Hluhluwe. 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. Our private game reserve is just 27 km north of Hluhluwe in KZN and as well as offering singular accommodation, Rhino River Lodge is home to a wealth of wildlife including: leopard, cheetah, elephant, black and white rhino, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, blue wildebeest, warthog, bush pig 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. We are very proud to be part of the greater Zululand Rhino Reserve which has recently been proclaimed a "protected area" making us the biggest private game reserve in the province. Furthermore, we are privileged to be one of the few areas selected for the re-introduction of the rare and endangered black rhino. This project was a combined initiative of theWorld Wild Life Fundand KZN Ezemvelo. Twenty-one of these magnificent creatures were released into our reserve and can once again be seen ranging their historical habitat. Most rewarding has been the birth of six youngsters, since introduction, which has added enormously to ourgame viewing experience.
