Accommodation

Rhino River Cottage is a holiday home in Hluhluwe. There are two en-suite bedrooms each furnished with twin beds pushed together and are complete with air conditioners and stunning views. The en-suite bathrooms are fitted with a shower, toilet and basin.

The Cottage features a cosy lounge and a dining room, as well as a fully functional kitchen.

The covered veranda with comfy furniture and the private swimming pool overlooking the Msunduze River are the star features of this comfortable house.

Dining

All meals are included but drinks are an additional cost.

Lodge Facilities

The lodge grounds sprawl through an area of thick riverine vegetation, rich with bird and animal life, and filled with magnificent fig and fever trees. The grounds also include a reception with curio shop, dining room with bar, Wi-Fi, lounge, and swimming pool.

Activities

In order to maximise our guest's chances of fulfilling their African safari wishes, the accommodation package includes morning and afternoon drives. Night drives and guided walks are arranged on request.

Our morning drives leave soon after sunrise in order to try and catch the animals whilst they are still active before the heat of the day sets in. The drives are generally two-and-a-half hours long, interrupted only by a hot beverage and biscuits at a scenic point before returning to camp for a full cooked breakfast.

The afternoon drive leaves once the day starts to cool down and the animals are active again. This is usually when the bigger animals are found close to water or mud wallows. As the sun begins to set, a complimentary drink is served before making our way back to camp and pre-dinner drinks around the boma fire.

Night drives depart after an early supper and are about 2 hours long. This is when Africa’s more secretive creatures are about. Common sightings include porcupine, small spotted genet, aardvark, white tailed mongoose, bush babies, night jars and owls and on the rare occasion hyena, leopard or honey badger can be spotted.

Our guided walks offer the more adventurous an opportunity to experience the wilds of Africa in the best possible way, on foot! A guided walk entails an interpretive bush experience as close to nature as possible. In the interests of safety the group size is limited to 6 people. Walks are undertaken either in the early morning or late afternoon and are between 2 and 3 hours long. Walking affords the unique opportunity of exploring paths that have been traversed by wild animals for centuries, and being exposed to all the smells and sounds of the bush which are not noticed when travelling by vehicle.
